Academy Award Nominations: 2011 Oscar Noms Announced
Oscar Nominations: The King's Speech vs Winter's Bone
The 83rd Academy Awards ceremony will take place on February 27, 2011. The Oscar Nominations were announced early on January 25, with The King's Speech netting 12 nominations. Winter's Bone, though, is a force to be reckoned with.
Here are the Oscar Nominees in the major categories.
- 127 Hours
- The Kids Are All Right
- The King's Speech
- Black Swan
- The Social Network
- The Fighter
- Winter's Bone
- Toy Story 3
- True Grit
So, a movie about a speech impediment vs a movie about people taking naps. My pick: Winter's Bone (the movie about a girl going door to door and asking, "Have you seen my dad?") will own this category.
- Javier Bardem, Biutiful
- Jeff Bridges, True Grit
- Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
- Colin Firth, The King's Speech
- James Franco, 127 Hours
My guess: Colin Firth.
- Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
- Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
- Jennifer Lawrence,Winter's Bone
- Natalie Portman, Black Swan
- Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine
This one belongs to Jennifer Lawrence. Maybe Natalie Portman with an outside chance, but come on. Jennifer Lawrence.
Best Supporting Actor
- Christian Bale, The Fighter
- John Hawkes in Winter's Bone
- Jeremy Renner in The Town
- Mark Ruffalo in The Kids Are All Right
- Geoffrey Rush in The King's Speech
My pick: Geoffrey Rush. John Hawkes managed to be the most terrifying 94-lb man on the face of the earth, but this year belongs to The King (and his speech therapist).
Best Supporting Actress
- Amy Adams in The Fighter
- Helena Bonham Carter in The King's Speech
- Melissa Leo in The Fighter
- Hailee Steinfeld in True Grit
- Jacki Weaver in Animal Kingdom
Hailee Stanfield. Weird that they're treating her as a supporting actress.
- Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan
- David O. Russell, The Fighter
- Tom Hooper, The King's Speech
- David Fincher, The Social Network
- Joel & Ethan Coen, True Grit
I'm thinking David Fincher, who made a film about events that we saw unfold in real time, like, ten minutes ago, still seem fascinating. Oh, and my pick for Best Animated Feature would be Toy Story 3. Come on.
