The 83rd Annual Academy Award nominees were announced Tuesday morning, and The King’s Speech leads the pack with 12 nominations. The drama's accolades include best picture and best actor for Colin Firth, who plays British monarch King George VI.
The remake of the classic Western True Grit comes in second with 10 nods. The Social Network, which tells the story of how Mark Zuckerberg launched Facebook, and Inception, the mysterious look at the dream world, both received eight nominations.
Competing for best actor with Firth -- who snagged a best actor Golden Globe earlier this month -- are The Social Network’s Jesse Eisenberg, 127 Hours' James Franco (who is cohosting the Academy Awards alongside Anne Hathaway), Biutiful's Javier Bardem and True Grit's Jeff Bridges.
Unsurprisingly, Golden Globe winner Natalie Portman is nominated for best actress for her role as a ballerina devolving into madness in Black Swan. But Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right), Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole), Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone) and Michelle Williams (Blue Valentine) are also vying for the Oscar.
