Oscar Nominations are in!

Here're some of the nominations that might be of interest to many of you:

•“Day & Night”
•“The Gruffalo”
•“Let's Pollute”
•“The Lost Thing”
•“Madagascar, carnet de voyage (Madagascar, a Journey Diary)”

•“How to Train Your Dragon”
•“The Illusionist”
•“Toy Story 3”

Chris Nolan's 'Inception' has been nominated in many categories such as original screenplay writing, visual FX, sound mixing, sound editing, original score, cinematography, art direction and Best Picture!

Toy Story 3 has been nominated for adapted screenplay writing, sound editing, and Best Picture!

Tangled has a nomination for best original song.

Iron Man 2 has been nominated for visual FX.

Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' has been nominated for visual FX, art design and costume design.

And on an interesting note, Banksy's film 'Exit through the Gift Shop' has been nominated for Best Documentary!

Notable absences are 'TRON: Legacy' missing from VFX but nominated for sound editing; and sadly Mamoru Hosoda's 'Summer Wars' which was in the running to be nominated for best animated film is sadly nowhere to be seen... This is likely because due to not enough films being submitted, the nominee list was reduced to only 3 selections instead of a potential 5.
