This year is the 79th Annual Academy Awards (Feb. 25th), or more commonly known as the Oscars. Big winners from previous award shows (Babel, Dreamgirls, Departed, and Little Miss Sunshine) are expected to do well, and some late arrivals (Blood Diamond and Notes on a Scandal) just might sneak away with a couple awards. Regardless, it will make for an entertaining awards show as so many quality films are in the running. Listed below is a recap of the nominees by category for the Oscars, and they are as follows:

The sweeping ensemble drama "Babel" was close behind with seven, including best picture and acting honors for two newcomers to U.S. audiences, Adriana Barraza and Rinko Kikuchi.
Other best-picture nominees were the bloody crime saga "The Departed," the World War II spectacle "Letters From Iwo Jima," the road-trip comedy "Little Miss Sunshine" and the monarchy-in-crisis chronicle "The Queen."
Following is a list of all of the nominees and the categories for which they represent.
