With the award season finally upon us, our two favourite nomination lists have been released- the Oscars and the Razzies.
We’ll start with the Oscars, which lets be honest, have been hugely predictable. You guessed it, The King’s Speech took away a fair few nominations, 12 in fact, including Best Picture and Best Actor.
True Grit, which hasn’t had quite the hype as The King’s Speech, came in just behind with 10 nominations. The big films of the summer, Inception and The Social Network, took eight, with The Fighter and 127 Hours just behind with six. Perhaps surprisingly Aronofsky‘s Black Swan only got five nominations, as did Winter’s Bone and Toy Story 3.
The only real surprise has been that Christopher Nolan didn’t receive a nomination for Best Director for Inception. To be fair though he would have been up against some pretty strong candidates David O. Russell, Darren Aronofsky, Tom Hooper, the Coen Brothers and David Fincher.
And now to the Razzies, more formally known as the Golden Raspberry Awards. Fortunately for Lindsay Lohan, it seems a spell in rehab has paid off in some way – she has escaped any nominations this year.
The most unfortunate movies included The Last Airbender, which is nominated for Worst Picture, Worst Supporting Actress, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-use of 3D, Worst Director and Worst Screenplay.
So what do you think, were any of the Oscar nominations or Razzie’s nominations wrongly awarded?
The Razzies are given out on Febuary 26 and the following evening the Oscars are awarded.
