The 2012 Oscar Nominations were announced this morning and let me say it is quite a list. There were some fantastic surprises on the list that now have me rooting for those underdogs.

Michelle Williams 1




I was thrilled when the names of Melissa McCarthy and Jonah Hill were both announced on the list of 2012 Oscar Nominees. Melissa was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in Bridesmaids; Jonah was nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for his role in Moneyball.

Congrats to those two and all the amazing nominees. There is a lot of great talent represented this year so it will no doubt be a tough year to choose a winner. You and I can see who takes home the coveted award on February 26th on ABC.
