There might be a strike and no fancy Oscar ceremony this year, but the show will go on, in one form or another. It is the 80th annual Academy Awards, after all. Eighty years. That's a long time for cinema, and a pretty big anniversary to boot. As I sit here, wishing I was still in bed (yet thankful that I don't live on the west coast and have to be up even earlier), here are the list of this year's nominees:
