The Oscars Nominations-...And The Winners Are!(Update Anthony Picks The Winners)

The nominations were announced this morning in their constant confusion for people that like the awards there is one question I ask is this: If you nominate 9 films for Best Picture then how can their only be 5 nominations for Best Director?This is the one awards show I enjoy watching as for the length of the show they could cut the time down. I also enjoy The Independent Spirit Awards as well.
