Christopher Nolan

Oscar’s Eleven.

The King’s Speech led the field with 12 nominations, including nods for best picture and director, while True Grit galloped close behind with a healthy 10 nominations. The Social Network also landed its expected best picture nomination, along with seven other nods.” The 83rd Annual Oscar nominations are announced and they’re basically as expected. [Full list.]

I’ll make my official picks closer to the date, but for now, my own best of 2010 is here.(I’ve seen all the best picture nominees this year except 127 Hours.) As for the surprises, I’m glad to see John Hawkes get a Supporting Actor nod, even if I didn’t much like Winter’s Bone. And good to see Grit‘s Hailee Steinfeld get noticed too — but why is she in Supporting Actress? She’s in every single scene in the film.

As for the snubs, Daft Punk should’ve gotten some love for their Tron: Legacy score — they pretty much made the movie — and Christopher Nolan should have Tom Hooper’s spot in the Best Director category for Inception. But all in all, these aren’t bad choices at all, particularly given Oscar’s usual misfires.
