Curious who will be announcing the Oscar Nominations on Tuesday morning?

Well, the actress chosen to present them is none other than Anne Hathaway. Here's the press release:

Nominations for the 82nd Academy Awards® will be announced on Tuesday, February 2, by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Tom Sherak and Oscar-nominated actress and Academy member Anne Hathaway.

Sherak and Hathaway will unveil the nominations in 10 of the 24 categories at a 5:30 a.m. news conference at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, where hundreds of media representatives from around the world will be gathered. Nominations information for all categories will be distributed simultaneously to news media in attendance and via the Internet on the official Academy Awards Web site, www.oscar.com.

-I can't wait...


  1. This has felt like both the longest and shortest Oscar season in memory, but that's just me...

  2. It's also the first one in a while that has felt like an actual race with unpredictable results.

  3. It is exciting that there's no sure-fire wins at the moment. It's exciting! I hated it last year when it seemed, until the announcement, that Best Actor was determined.

  4. I also think it must be good for the nominees to be nominated when anyone could win - having everyone saying "such and such" is going to win must ruin the celebration of the nomination.

  5. It's true Joey. It seems like this season doesn't want to end...At the same time I wake up thinking "holy shit, I just saw Penelope Cruz winning an Oscar....now she's back again..........singing."
