There weren't too many surprises among the nominees, but I was shocked at a few of the actors/actresses who were left out in the cold.  .

The Academy Awards ceremony will be held on February 27th. They aren't as lively as the Golden Globes, but I usually tune in for the red carpet and then skip through to just the award announcements.
