Full Oscar List Released: Avatar Now Leads The Race
As we hovered nervously by the live feed yesterday while the initial Oscar Nominations were read out (you know, the ones that most people care about like Best Picture and Best Director), the full list has now been released.
The new list puts Avatar and The Hurt Locker on par with the most nominations at nine a piece, neatly pitting James Cameron and his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow against each other in the award stakes. Avatar had previously only received two nominations in the initial listing with no nominations for the acting categories.
Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds now has eight nominations.
The winners will be announced on March 7th.
You can read the full list of nominations at the official website.
