And the Oscar nominees are…

THE HURT LOCKER
For the first time since 1943 the Oscars feature 10 best-picture contenders instead of the usual five. “Avatar” and “Hurt Locker” lead the way at Oscar nominations with 9 noms each including best picture and director for former spouses James Cameron and Kathryn Bigelow.

Also, interesting to note is the fact that no woman has ever won the directing Oscar, and until Bigelow, no woman had ever won the Director’s Guild honor.

Helen Mirren made the following statement: “I’m very happy and honored for Christopher, myself and our film. I think Tolstoy himself would have been perplexed by all this, but, Sofya his wife would have been over the moon. So in that spirit, I am too.”

And the 82nd Academy Awards nominees are:
