Oscar Nominations Are Out and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Was Snubbed

The 83rd Academy Awards nominations were announced today. The King’s Speech lead the way with 12 nominations. The biggest surprise might be that Christopher Nolan did not get a nod for Inception.I guess he can’t be too depressed since Sylvester Stallone was also ignored by the Academy.

My favorite movie of the year – Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World didn’t receive any nominations. My advice to you? Run out and see The King’s Speech and Winter’s Bone before you decide what should win best picture. If you ask me, The King’s Speech is the best film of 2010 while The Fighter, Winter’s Bone and The Social Network fight over runner-up.

The full list of nominees can be found at IMDB.com.

I’ll leave you with How You Like Me Now? by The Heavy. 78% of all major motion picture trailers featured this song in 2010. Including The King’s Speech which I didn’t think fit at all.

(Seriously though, how brilliant would it be if someone set a trailer for The King’s Speech to How You Like Me Now?)
