It’s a big day in Hollywood. The 2011 Academy Award Nominations were just announced. Unlike the Golden Globes, fans of “The Tourist” and “Burlesque” are not going to be happy.
This year marks the the first time there will a whopping 10 films vying for the Best Picture Oscar. Some believe this heavily diluted category waters down the prestige of the award. But still, everyone wants it.
