TOMORROW NIGHT, be sure to tune into the Oscars! This year boasts a whopping 10 best picture nominees, likely a reaction to last year’s snub of The Dark Knight, and that means you’re worlds (okay, twice) more likely to see one of your favourites represented in the biggest awards category in today’s film world.
Here’s a look at the main categories you’ll have to watch out for on Sunday! And you can check out the rest of the nominees over on the official Oscar website.

Actress in a Leading Role: Sandra Bullock, Helen Mirren, Carey Mulligan, Gabourey Sidibe, Meryl Streep
Directing: Avatar, The Hurt Locker, Inglourious Basterds, Up in the Air, Precious
