The Conservative Critic

Breaking: Oscar Nominations are HERE!



Finally the day has arrived that we know which movies are going to get golden trophies! I was right about some things and wrong about others (Dune did not get snubbed and no sneaky Bond nominations) but overall the nominations are extremely competitive. Below find the nominees for the top categories and click here for a full list. 

Power of the Dog, which took home the top spot at the Golden Globes, leads the nominations with 12. In second place is Dune with 10 nominations but Dune was not included in any top acting or Directing nominations which is normally critical to take home Best Picture.
