Nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards were announced early this morning in Beverly Hills (full list here), and while the big story is that the King's Speech got the most nominations with 12 (True Grit got 10, Social Network and Inception both got 8), the obvious headlines are that Christopher Nolan did NOT get a nomination as Best Director, and that I look incredibly handsome in the rugged, monochromatic tones that are so hot this winter.

It's good to see Jesse Eisenberg on there for Best Actor. He won't win, Firth will because he had a gimmick and the Academy is stupid, but he was great in a role that was much harder than some may realize and he absolutely deserves to be there. Also it's nice to finally see a Jew catch a break in Hollywood.
