THE OSCAR AWARDS!



Yes, that's right. It is once again time for the biggest awards show of the year.The Oscars awards take place tonight, and with its 82nd show, many people are hoping to see a change. Tonight is the biggest moment for all Hollywood stars...or for that matter, Hollywood itself. I really hope I will be able to watch it. I can't wait to see who wins! As you can see, the film "Avatar" has the most nominations. I counted them, and in total, there have been 9 nominations for the film or something related to it. It was meant to be sci-fi film of the year in previous awards, but will it win the hearts of the public this time? Below you can find a list of the official nominees. Who do you want to win? And who do you think deserves it? I am sort of disappointed though, as there's no mention of Twilight OR Harry Potter, except for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince for best cinematography. Some Disney films have been nominated for several awards as well, such as Up and The Princess and the Frog. The new animation film from Roald Dahl's legendary collection, "Fantastic Mr. Fox" has also been nominated for best Animation.
