2010 Oscar Nominations List

At 8:30AM this morning the list of nominees for the 82nd Oscars were revealed. Leading at the front of the pack is mega blockbuster Avatar with 9 nominations, followed closely by Quentin Tarantino’s magnificent film Inglorious Basterds with 8. The Hurt Locker, District 9 and Up were also best picture noms with a surprise twist added by The Blind Side coming in to ten picks. Normally animated features and sci-fi flicks never the get the attention they deserve so it’s nice to see not one but two on the list.

The complete list of nominees is below.
