The nominations for the 80th Annual Academy Awards are finally here, filled with the usual surprises and snubs.
No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood are neck and neck in the lead with eight nominations apiece. Fellow Best Picture nominees Michael Clayton and Atonement (proving that no guild support means nothing to the Academy) racked up seven nods each, with Animated Feature front-runner Ratatouille scoring five. And Juno edged The Diving Bell and the Butterfly out of the BP race, with both netting four nominations each.
Surprises include unexpected nods for actors Tommy Lee Jones, Laura Linney, Ruby Dee and director Jason Reitman. Among the notable snubs: Angelina Jolie, Sean Penn, Jonny Greenwood, Eddie Vedder, The Simpsons Movie, 300 and (tragedy!) Hairspray.
See the comments section below for the complete list of nominees. The Oscar winners will be announced, with or without the strike, on February 24.
