Oscar Nominations Are In....

The Oscar nominations were announced bright and early this morning, with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button coming out on top with a whopping 13 nominations. Fan-favorite Slumdog Millionaire came in second with 10. On a bittersweet note, Heath Ledger's nominations for his supporting role in The Dark Knight fell on the one-year anniversary of his death. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were also nominated, as they were at the Golden Globes. Kate Winslet was recognized for her role in The Reader, but she failed to score a second nod for her work in Revolutionary Road. Leonardo DiCaprio was left out of the running completely. -- Jacki Garfinkel
