Thoughts on Oscar Nominations

By on 1.25.11 | 10:37AM

Nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards were announced this morning in Los Angeles.

The King's Speech, True Grit and The Social Network were amongst the ten films nominated.

The only film amongst those nominated that I have seen is Toy Story 3. Since the Academy resumed nominating ten films rather than five it seems they will include one animated film in the mix. Last year, they nominated Up (and yes I saw that one as well).

I'm not sure having seen only one of the ten films nominated says more about me or the films. Although I could probably be persuaded to see The Black Swan to observe the delicate interaction between Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.
