Movie fans have 10 best-picture nominees to choose from, but it's come down to a battle between ex-spouses James Cameron with his blockbuster 'Avatar,' and Kathryn Bigelow with her under-the-radar war thriller 'The Hurt Locker.' Both are also up for best director and share the lead in total nominations, with nine.

Among other nominated films for Hollywood's biggest prize: 'The Blind Side,' 'District 9,' 'An Education,' 'Inglourious Basterds,' Precious,' 'A Serious Man,' 'Up' and 'Up in the Air.'
