Anne Hathaway, Tom Sherak announced the 2010 Best Picture nominees

Anne Hathaway, 2009 best actress nominee for Rachel Getting Married, and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Tom Sherak announced the nominees in the top categories of the 2010 Academy Awards at a "nominations event" held at 5:30 a.m. PT Tuesday at the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

There were no major surprises this year, though some eyebrows were raised (and there was some clapping, too) when the John Lee Hancock-directed Sandra Bullock vehicle The Blind Side was named one of the ten nominees. The other nine are: James Cameron's Avatar, Neill Blomkamp's District 9, Lone Scherfig's An Education, Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker, Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, Lee Daniels' Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire, Joel and Ethan Coen's A Serious Man, Pete Docter's Up and Jason Reitman's Up in the Air.

The two favorites this year are the sci-fi adventure Avatar and the Iraq War drama The Hurt Locker. Each has nine nominations, including best director. The Hurt Locker was also shortlisted in the best original screenplay and best actor (Jeremy Renner) categories.
