Buzz: Academy Awards Nominations

The 2011 Oscar nominees have just been announced. 'The King's Speech' becomes the most nominated movie of 2010, with 12 Oscar nods. 'True Grit' walks away with 10 nominations, while Christopher Nolan falls short of a Best Director nod for 'Inception'. For only the third time in Academy history, an animated movie, 'Toy Story 3,' makes the Best Picture list.
