‘True Grit’ second with 10 noms; ‘Social Network,’ ‘Inception’ each get 8; Christopher Nolan locked out
"The King's Speech" topped the Oscar lists Tuesday morning with 12 nominations, followed by "True Grit," with 10.
"Social Network" and "Inception" tied for 8 … but the big shocker was "Inception" director Christopher Nolan was ignored.
In the acting races, Javier Bardem scored a surprise nomination for "Biutiful," while John Hawkes was honored for "Winter's Bone" with a Supporting Actor nomination.
Overall, "The King's Speech" came out of the morning with its momentum intact after Sunday night's win at the Producers Guild Awards. "True Grit" also did better than expected, while "Inception" showed strength mostly in the technical categories. "The Social Network," considered the favorite for much of the awards season, had a respectable showing but did not bolster its case as a likely winner.
This marks the second consecutive year that the Academy has nominated 10 films for Best Picture after more than 60 years with a field of five.
The 83rd Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theater in the Hollywood and Highland Center, and will air on ABC. Anne Hathaway and James Franco will host the show.
Following is the full list of nominees for the 83rd Academy Awards, to be held Feb. 27.
