Alright folks, AMPAS president Tom Sherak and actress Mo’Nique will be announcing the major category nominations in, oh, 20 minutes or so. The full list will be available at Oscar.com immediately after (though sometimes during) that announcement.
I’ll leave this space for your instant reactions and will post up my own extended thoughts shortly thereafter. Anne and I will be doing a four-way Oscar Talk with Peter Knegt and Guy Lodge later this morning, and Guy will circle back later in the afternoon with his extended thoughts on the announcement. But, for now, here’s your playground. Check out a live stream of the announcement (which begins at 5:30am PT, 8:30 am PT) after the jump. More to come shortly.
