Academy Awards Oscars nominations snubs news clint eastwood

Even with 10 films in the race for best picture at the Oscars, there was no room for Golden Globe champ "The Hangover," BFCA and PGA nominee "Invictus," BFCA, Globe and SAG nominee "Nine" and PGA nominee "Star Trek."

Clint Eastwood -- who won two of his four Oscars for directing best picture champs "Unforgiven" (1992) and "Million Dollar Baby" (2004) -- was snubbed for his helming of "Invictus" despite his win with the National Board of Review and a nod from the Golden Globes. Eastwood had also contended at the Oscars for his directing of best picture nominees "Mystic River" (2003) and "Letters From Iwo Jima" (2006).

The all-star cast of "Nine" was loaded with past Oscar winners headed by two-time champ Daniel Day-Lewis but only previous supporting actress champ Penelope Cruz ("Vicky Cristina Barcelona") merited a mention in the acting races.

Also missing from this year's Oscars ballot are Globe drama actor nominee Tobey McGuire ("Brothers") as well as all the leading men who contended for the musical/comedy Globe. Globe drama actress nominee Emily Blunt ("The Young Victoria") failed to make the cut as did all the musical/comedy Globe actress contenders save for winner Meryl Streep ("Julie & Julia").
