Counting Up Nods: A Dozen Crowns

Usually the film with the most Oscar nominations goes on to win the best picture prize. This is important to note today since the favorite to win (The Social Network) had 4 fewer nominations than The King's Speech, so if something seems like a sure thing, let the campaigning begin.

Looking at this list by nominations alone, The Social Network doesn't seem as quiet as special. In fact, I'm shocked to see how many nominations True Grit has received, considering it's popularity among audiences but relatively unexciting award season (keep in mind it had ZERO Golden Globe Nominations).

So here's the nomination count of the 10 Best Picture nominated films ranked by number of nominations:
  • The King's Speech (12 nominations)
  • True Grit (10 nominations)
  • Inception (8 nominations)
  • The Social Network (8 nominations)
  • The Fighter (7 nominations)
  • 127 Hours (6 nominations)
  • Black Swan (5 nominations)
  • Toy Story 3 (5 nominations)
  • The Kids Are All Right (4 nominations)
  • Winter's Bone (4 nominations)
