2010 Academy Award Nominations Announced

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?
