This year’s Academy Award nominations have been announced, and there are some expected names there as well as a few surprises.  No one was shocked to hear that The King’s Speech, True Grit, and The Social Network got the most nominations, but the appearance of Toy Story 3 in the best picture category was a surprise to many.

No doubt Christopher Nolan was bewildered at not getting a nomination as best director for Inception, and Andrew Garfield also failed to get a nomination for best supporting actor in The Social Network.  Javier Bardem, however, had a pleasant surprise, as he’s up for the best actor award for his role in the dark drama Biutiful.
