As expected The King's Speech took 12 well deserved nominations closely followed by True Grit.

The nominations were read out at 1.30 this afternoon (5.30 am in Los Angeles) by 2010 winner Mo'Nique and Academy president Tom Sherak.

Other films in the running include Christopher Nolan's Inception which took 8 alongside David Fincher's The Social Network. followed by The Fighter and 127 Hours with 6.

Natalie Portman's Black Swan, Jennifer Lawrence's Winter's Bone and the Disney/Pixar animated hit Toy Story 3 all took 5. While the Julianne Moore and Annette Bening dramedy The Kids Are All Right took 4.

Unsurprisingly The King's Speech is in the Best Picture category with some rather fine competition, however it is definitely the front runner. The Fighter, Inception, The Kids Are All Right, 127 Hours, The Social Network, Toy Story 3, True Grit and Winter's Bone round out the Best Picture category.
