Other contenders for original screenplay: the cancer story 50/50; the family tale Win Win; and the dark comedy Young Adult.

Also nominated for adapted screenplay: the thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; the Deep South drama The Help; and the Paris adventure Hugo.

According to the BBC, they'll be presented on Feb. 19th. Not sure where, but last year they announced winners at simultaneous ceremonies in New York and LA.

I thought he would look a little more relaxed after such a long holiday. I guess it's more work for him then relaxation. And of course he may off even left early to do some work I wouldn't put it past him we rarely saw him. Looks like he will need some more sleep with all these awards coming up.

You mean the fact that the story posted was from a Canadian site? That's because news gets reported internationally. Just because it's a US award doesn't mean only US publications are allowed to talk about it.

No I don't think Ides got as much attention as it deserved. But then that is a political movie and some don't like that.
