For us movie fans, this past Tuesday was a big day. The nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards were announced. There are many awards presented every year: the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild, the Directors Guild, Producers Guild, and Writers Guild. Critics choose their favorites, too. There are even “awards” for the worst movies of the year, the Razzies, which sometimes overlap the other awards. But nothing matches the Oscars for recognition and excitement.
