Nominations for the 75th annual Academy Awards were announced this morning and, not surprisingly, Chicago danced off with a field-best 13 nods, including best picture, best actress (Renée Zellweger), best supporting actress (Queen Latifah and Catherine Zeta-Jones), best supporting actor (John C. Reilly), best adapted screenplay (Bill Condon) and best director (Rob Marshall). It'll compete for best picture with Gangs of New York (10 nods total), The Hours (nine nods), The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (six nods) and The Pianist (seven nods). Glaring omissions include: Richard Gere for Chicago, Meryl Streep for The Hours and Dennis Quaid for Far From Heaven. Streep, however, did score a nod in the supporting slot for her work in Adaptation. And Julianne Moore became only the ninth person in history to score two nominations in the same year: Lead actress for Far From Heaven and supporting actress for The Hours. Couldn't happen to a nicer gal. For a complete nominees list, click here. And come back tomorrow for reaction and analysis.
