Get excited because the Oscar nomination buzz can finally be laid to rest!
Nominations were announced this morning with The King’s Speech racking in the most this year at 12. With all the hype surrounding actress Natalie Portman (not to mention a prestigious EW cover a few weeks back), it was no surprise that her Black Swan performance would be nominated in the top female category for Best Actress.
What I’m excited for is to see if Social Network will really take the night’s highest honor. The movie has already won both Critic’s Choice Award and The Golden Globe for Best Picture, but the Academy is always a bit more unpredictable. With all the publicity around Facebook lately, maybe Zuckerberg can add an Oscar-winning movie adaptation to his growing list of accolades.
Anne Hathaway and James Franco (also a nominee!) are hosting this year, so it should be a riot. Awards season is always fun to watch for us PR people… the media storm of movie campaigns, news articles and of course the red carpet wear.
