It is 5 per award not 5 total but sometimes they nominated more if they think they are deserving of the nominations

There are some interesting snubs on this lust this year.

I cannot believe Christopher Nolan did not get a directing Oscar! What does the man need to do to win an award?
or Leonardo Dicaprio? Are they going to wait until he's 70, and give him some big lifetime achievement award? C'mon already.
Another big snub in my opinion, is Paul Giamatti. I simply cannot believe he got the snub, and yet Jeff Bridges gets another nomination. True Grit was good, but not that good.
The other one is Mila Kunis. She should have got a supporting nom, as I think she was just as good as Natalie Portman.

As for the social network:
Good, yes. Should it have received this many Oscar nominations: Absolutely not. Seems suspicious that it would receive that many award nominations.

Interesting list this year academy!

Yes, they went from 5 to 10 nominations so they could
'include more mainstream movies'
i.e. were tired of movies as art, screw that - lets go with a big money making 'King's Speech' rules over Oscar race - Entertainment - Movies - TODAYshow.com[/url]popularity contest



'King's Speech' rules over Oscar race - Entertainment - Movies - TODAYshow.com

From the article....

One notable omission was director Christopher Nolan for "Inception," though he got a nomination for original screenplay. Nolan also missed out two years ago on a directing Oscar nomination for "The Dark Knight," which was famously not nominated for best picture. That contributed to the decision to double the number of contenders so that acclaimed popular movies would have a better chance.

From a different article: Oscar noms diluted by 10 best pic nominations
Which brings me to the next talking point: Year two of the great 10 best picture nominees experiment should be the last. It's just. Too. Many. (This year: "Black Swan," "The Fighter," "Inception," "The Kids Are All Right," "The Kings Speech," "127 Hours," "The Social Network," "Toy Story 3," "True Grit," "Winter's Bone.") Obviously, it's the Academy's way of helping as many films possible get that box office bump that comes with a nomination. And I'm all for a thriving film industry. However, the most interesting part of any party often isn't just who shows up, but who was left out. Make some tough choices, academy. Go back to the usual five nominees, and the show will be more compelling.


Personally I think Winter's Bone is the best overall package of screenplay, concept, location, casting, direction and deserves Best Picture, or awards for all those other things separately. But it stands no chance due to limited release, limited box office money, no big stars blah blah blah.
John Hawkes was wonderful.

'Exit through the Gift Shop'
'Gasland'
'Inside Job'
'Restrepo'
'Waste Land'
I think having "Gasland" in there is a real sham...yes, it's a Documentary, but mostly fictional. i don't want to get political, but in all seriousness, this film is horribly littered with misinformation, and i'll puke if it wins anything.
