Oscar Noms Announced

In the wee hours of a cloudy Tuesday morning the nominations for the 80th annual pat-on-the-back-fest were announced. There were a few surprises and a few to be expected as to who got the nod (though we were still cheering "I know who killed me" for something.)

"No Country for Old Men" appears to be the big collector this time around, nabbing eight nominations for the little gold dude, including best picture, director and supporting actor.

"Ratatouille" got nominated for both animated film and for original screenplay.

Casey Affleck got a nod for his character in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" which, as we pointed out previously is pretty-much the same character he always plays. But we were also happy that Assassination was nominated for cinematography.

And speculation as to who's going to take what starts to form around water coolers everywhere. Of course, the big question is will the Oscars even take place?

Though producers of the awards show have said that it will go on no matter what, the Screen Actors Guild has said that they will honor the picket lines and not cross them. So unless the strike gets solved soon (which might happen now that both sides have agreed to go back to the table and talk) there is going to be some interesting confrontations in front of Hollywood and Highland on Oscar night.

We'll be providing a full analysis of the films and our predictions of who is going to soon.

The full list of nominations are after the jump.
