Oscar Noms Are Out! And Surprise! Black Swan and Social Network Dominate

By  | 

The Social Network has gone and done it again! Our fave movie of the year, which pretty much swept at the Golden Globes, got, like, a million Oscar nominations in most of the major categories, including Best Actor (yay, Jesse Eisenberg!), Best Director, Best Score, Best Screenplay and Best Picture.

Blue Valentine and Black Swan were incredible. I loved them both for the level of commitment from the actors.”
