Today is the second biggest day of the year for the Every Oscar Ever Project, as the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences released the nominations for the 84th Academy Awards. The nominations, which can be viewed here, consist of many of the expected films (Hugo with 11 nominations, The Artist with 10), and a few surprises (a Best Actor nomination for Demian Bichir for A Better Life, Margin Call scoring a Best Original Screenplay nom). Most significantly for Every Oscar Ever, the nominations offers a list of movies that I now must add to my list of movies to see.

That's 42 films and 58 nominations to add to the Every Oscar Ever Project, putting me at 3183 films remaining, and 5462 nominations. This means I have 5 more films to watch than when I started, and 10 less nominations. It's a bit discouraging, and this means I am going to have to increase significantly the number of movies I watch next year in order to make forward progress.

Remaining: 3181 films, 869 Oscars, 5462 nominations
