If you're a movie lover, it's the most wonderful time of the year. The Golden Globes aired a few weeks ago, kicking off the red carpet season. And this week, the nominations for the Academy Awards were released at the crack of dawn on Tuesday morning. It's probably the one day out of the entire year that all of Hollywood wakes up well before noon.

This year's crop of Best Picture nominees has a very historical flavor, with 5 out of the 9 set in the past. Many people are wondering why there are only 9 movies nominated this year instead of 10 for the previous year. The Academy changed their rules so that each movie title had to meet a certain threshold in order to make the list, and only nine qualified.
The Academy Awards will be telecast on Sunday, February 26th on ABC. So get your ballots filled out, your appetizers ready and decide what color feather boa you'd like to wear for the big event. But first...tell us which movie you think will win the grand prize!
