2010 Academy Award Nominations Announced

Written by Jesse Hayward on February 3, 2010

The 2010 Academy Award nominations have just been announced and are of no surprise to anybody whatsoever. Avatar is up for a string of nominations, including Best Director, though for some reason District 9 misses out on that nomination and a few others that I think it really deserves.

Have a look at the list and let us know what you think! What’s missing? Who is undeserving?
