The 84th Annual Academy Award Nominations

This morning, the nominations for the 84th Annual Academy Awards are being announced from the Academy's Headquarters at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Hollywood by Academy President Tom Sherak and one of last year's nominees, Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone).

Last night on The DJBC Happy Hour, I gave my final predictions on who would get nominated, who might get nominated, and what surprises there could be.
