The nominations for the Academy Awards have been announced! I always seem to forget how many films actually are competing against one another for the Best Picture category – a whopping 10 films!

However, leading the pack this year is The King’s Speech, garnering 12 nominations, closely followed by the Western remake True Grit receiving 10 nominations.

Both Inception and The Social Network received eight nominations each and all four of these films will go up against Black Swan, The Fighter, The Kids Are All Right, 127 Hours, Toy Story 3 and Winter’s Bone for Best Picture. Winners of the 83rd annual Academy Awards will be announced at a ceremony in Hollywood on February 27.
