83rd Academy Award Nominations

Oscar nominations are out! I can't believe how many of the movies I've already seen – I've never been this ahead of the game when the nominations came out before. The bolded line are the movies I've seen. I'm going to feature the six major categories today and I'll post the rest tomorrow.

Best Actor In A Leading Role

Javier Bardem in “Biutiful”
Jeff Bridges in “True Grit”
Jesse Eisenberg in “The Social Network”
Colin Firth in “The King's Speech”
James Franco in “127 Hours”

Best Actor In A Supporting Role

Christian Bale in “The Fighter”
John Hawkes in “Winter's Bone”
Jeremy Renner in “The Town”
Mark Ruffalo in “The Kids Are All Right”
Geoffrey Rush in “The King's Speech”

I'm glad Jeremy Renner was nominated only because I didn't think The Town was that good and now I don't feel like I watched it for nothing. There's no way he will win.
