Oscar Nominations "King's Speech," "True Grit" Lead Academy Awards Race
"King's Speech," "True Grit" Lead Oscar Race
"Social Network," "Inception" Also Receive Major Nominations for This Year's Academy Awards
Jan. 25, 2011
(CBS) BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - "The King's Speech," the true story of an English monarch struggle to overcome a disability to lead his nation in a time of war, is front-runner for this year's Academy Awards.
The film received 12 nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, and its three main cast members.
Close behind are "True Grit," with 10 nominations. The Coen Brothers' remake of the classic western, starring Best Actor nominee Jeff Bridges (in the role that won John Wayne HIS Oscar); and "The Social network" the critically acclaimed tale of the founding of Facebook, with nine nominations.
Also receiving nine nominations: "Inception," a spectacular sci-fi thriller in which corporate espionage is conducted in the subconscious. But a surprise this morning was the lack of a Best Director nomination for that film's creator, Christopher Nolan.
Nominations for this year's Oscars were announced by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences this morning at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.
Other nominees in the race for Best Picture include: "127 Hours," the true-life story of a hiker forced to cut off his arm when he becomes trapped under a boulder; "Black Swan," a feverish psychosexual tale of a ballerina and her mad dash for perfection; "The Fighter," about a struggling boxer and his combative family dynamics; "The Kids Are All Right," a comedy-drama about a lesbian couple whose lives are turned upside-down after meeting the sperm donor who sired their children; "Toy Story 3," a 3-D computer-generated odyssey of toys seeking to escape a daycare center; and "Winter's Bone," in which a young girl combats criminal elements in her extended Missouri family in order to save her home.
In addition to Bridges, Best Actor nominees are Javier Bardem as a low-life seeking reconciliation in his relationships as he faces death in "Biutiful"; Jesse Eisenberg as Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg in "The Social Network"; Colin Firth as Britain's King George VI who must overcome a debilitating speech impediment in "The King's Speech"; and James Franco as Aron Ralston, who was forced to cut off his own arm to escape being trapped by a boulder in the UTAH wilderness in the true-life "127 Hours";
