Oscar Nominations 2011!
The King's Speech! True Grit!

25 January 2011  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

It's more "Well duh!" than "WTF?!" after the Oscar nominations were announced in Los Angeles today. At the ungodly hour of 5.30am local time, 2010 winner Mo'Nique and Academy president Tom Sherak read out the list - and as expected, The King's Speech was well represented.

The King's Speech took 12 nominations, putting it in the lead, ahead of True Grit's 10. Inception and The Social Network both took 8, followed by The Fighter and 127 Hours with 6. After that were  Black Swan, Winter's Bone and Toy Story 3 with 5. The Kids Are All Right took 4 and Alice in Wonderland took 3 - but in the technical categories, so don't worry.

The Best Picture nominees are Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The Kids Are All Right, The King's Speech, 127 Hours, The Social Network, Toy Story 3, True Grit and Winter's Bone.

The King's Speech is definitely the front-runner given that it has the highest number of nominations, but let's not discount The Social Network just yet. True Grit, however, despite having almost as many nods as the British film, is handicapped by having missed out on a Best Editing nod. Statistically speaking, if you want to win Best Picture, you need to be at least nominated for Best Editing: since 1981, every Best Picture winner has had an Editing nod, and most have won that category.

Best Director was very much as elsewhere, except that the Coen Brothers got a deserved nod for True Grit, joining David O. Russell, Darren Aronofsky, Tom Hooper and David Fincher. And yes, you read that right: Christopher Nolan missed out for Inception. Fanboys can vent their rage below - but since the film still took eight nominations and was a huge success despite being one of the hardest sells in history, we doubt Nolan himself will lose too much sleep over it.

The Supporting categories went just as expected, except for John Hawkes winning some welcome attention for his scene-stealing turn in Winter's Bone. Lead Actress is an exceptionally strong category this year, with any of the 5 nominees deserving the win: that's Natalie Portman for Black Swan, Annette Benning for The Kids Are All Right, Jennifer Lawrence for Winter's Bone, Nicole Kidman for the underseen but wonderful Rabbit Hole, and Michelle Williams for Blue Valentine.

Best Actor is a fight between Javier Bardem for Biutiful, Jeff Bridges for True Grit, Jesse Eisenberg for The Social Network, Colin Firth for The King's Speech and James Franco for 127 Hours. Aw-kward: Franco could end up presenting and winning! But he probably won't, because Firth is the runaway favourite, and if it isn't him it'll probably be Bridges (because we wonder if the Academy can resist the opportunity to give the Oscar twice to someone playing the same role).

Best Screenplay saw Mike Leigh nominated for Another Year and Christopher Nolan get one for Inception, which was nice. Adapted Screenplay saw a nod for Toy Story 3, which was also ace.

Best Animated Film went for How To Train Your Dragon, The Illusionist and Toy Story 3 - now there's a worthy category.

The full list is to follow.

Should Christopher Nolan get a Best Director nod?
As a massive Nolan fan and also a fan of Inception I am not convinced that he should. People often get confused and think that just because a film was great that the director should get a nomination. He did not get one for the Dark Knight in which he got a career defining performance out of Heath Ledger and in many ways is better than Inception. More

Thought I'd Join In...
I, like many people with sense, are outraged at the absence of Christopher Nolan on the Best Director nominations list. He is clearly a unique and intelligent film maker who deserves to be recognised with a nomination at least. I am also a huge 127 hours fan and find it a little sad that James Franco will probably miss out on winning best actor (regardless of your opinion on the film, Franco's performance is undeniably brilliant) to an equally deserving Colin Firth, as it is "his time" More

RE: Why should Christopher Nolan have been nominated?
Wow. What a lot of sweeping statements about me. I'm not a fanboy. I appreciate Nolan's body of work and so far he hasn't made a stinker. I don't sit up at night making Christopher Nolan and Leonardo DiCaprio fanfiction because I'm not a fanboy. I think he's an exceptionally talented film maker who so far has made great films about characters rather than events. I don't think Inception is my favourite film since The Dark Knight because The Dark Knight isn't one of my favourite films. It's a gre More

Cracks Knuckles* 1. His Dead wife. I'm pretty sure most people would do what he did. More often than not emotion overrides logical thinking. 2. I thought the snow sequences, whilst not anything compared to the hotel ones, were still very good. They were constrained, but still well done. 3. It doesn't make a point of being complicated and layered, it just is. As Mark Kermode put it, it's a film that doesn't explain things, it knows you're clever and tells you to keep up.

RE: Why should Christopher Nolan have been nominated?
By consistent I mean that the film is very short of plot holes, in fact I can't think of anything minor or significant in the film that doesn't make sense. It shouldn't have worked because of how layered and complicated the film was. Sure it's "Cinematic Nectar", but the film could have fallen at thousands of hurdles and become an incomprehensible wreck but it didn't. As for the snow sequence I saw absolutely nothing wrong with it. The hesitation seemed completely in place, bearing More

RE: Why should Christopher Nolan have been nominated?
I don't see why it shouldn't of worked, a heist film set in peoples' dreams sounds like ample cinematic nectar to me. It's also not as if someone's tried something like this before either; though Inception maybe superior to the likes of Dreamscape and Cronenberg's Existenze, it also borrows heavily from them so this may not be the searingly original and pioneering work that you assume it is. As for being well layered, that only applies to the plot and structure (of which Nolan is a master) but More

RE: Why should Christopher Nolan have been nominated?
Pretty sure Nolan's time will come when he has finished his Batman stint, The Oscars are after all, awards set up by the industry for the industry and as such, politics and sense of timing/event come into play. The end of a trilogy of mainstream movies with both popular and critical acclaim is more of an 'event' than Inception, even if that film has loads going for it, which it does. Christopher Nolan, having totally proven himself both as a maker of films purely for himself, the thinking More

I'm not for a minute suggesting that he should win, but the lack of a nomination for Christopher Nolan in the director category is a disgrace. Also, very disappointed that it didn't get an editing nod, or Lesley Manville didn't get one for supporting actress and the final insult is the lack of recognition for Of Gods & Men in the foreign language category, On the plus side, at least the Illusionist, Exit Through the Gift Shop, Dogtooth & John Hawkes got deserved nominations...

The years when a film with vision and balls cleans up (No Country For Old Men, The Hurt Locker) are few and far between so I don't expect them to give credit to someone like Nolan. Good for Fincher (ie, a genuinely talented director) if he wins but it won't make me love The Social Network any more. And I find it hilarious to read e More

But if it's about populism then they wouldn't have nominated The Coens for True Grit this year or Cameron for Avatar last year. It's going to be about the voting system. All the voters would have got five choices that they rank, but only the number one choice is important. Someone has to get a certain amount of number one votes to get a nomination. The lower ranks only come in to play once the number one choices with the lowest amount of votes start getting eliminated. Someone could have been v More
