The 82nd Academy Awards Nominations

The nominees for the 82nd Academy Awards were announced live on Tuesday February 2, 2010, at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California, by Tom Sherak, president of the Academy, and actress Anne Hathaway. The winners will be announced during the awards ceremony on March 7, 2010. On June 24, 2009, then-Academy president Sid Ganis announced at a press conference that the 2010 ceremony will feature ten Best Picture nominees instead of five.

Sadly, Eastwood's Invictus does not feature among the 10 best picture nominations, Clint also failed to join the best director list. In fact, Invictus only received 2 nominations in total, Morgan Freeman for best actor in a leading role and Matt Damon for best actor in a supporting role.

While I enjoyed Invictus a great deal and think it's a remarkably well made movie, I wouldn't be at all surprised if either or both actors will be overshadowed on the night.
