It's the time of year again when the Oscar hype machine will go into overdrive in the period between the nominations being announced and the ceremony itself.

This year there are two films which are ahead of the rest, and two films which are total contrasts in style. James Cameron has continued to astound everyone by getting a nomination for best picture and best director, and his film Avatar has managed nine nomination in total with the others being in the technical department.

Kathryn Bigelow's (who happens to be Camerons ex-wife) The Hurt Locker has also managed nine nominations, best picture and best director being two of then, the picture has also got a nomination for it's star Jeremy Renner as a leading actor.

The best picture category this year include 10 films (is that too many) so we have the likes of The Blind Side and Inglourious Basterds along side British hopeful An Education as well as South African sci-fi film District 9, and a first in that Up is nominated for best film and best animated film.

Best film and director is going to be a battle between Cameron and Bigelow, but the rest of the awards are an open field, so lets wait and see what heppens on March 7th at the 82nd Academy Awards Ceremony.

Who said that the box office was dead? Well Warner Bros. are set to make $4bn this year in Box Office takings, the highest a studio has ever made in a calendar year.

The big films which helped Warners hit this target were harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, their highest grosser this year, The Hangover, Yes Man, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button and Gran Torino which all came in over $100m in worldwide grosses.

Other films which have helped are Watchmen, Terminator Salvation and The Blind Side which is yet to see a UK release but did big business in the US. Sherlock Holmes is also sure to make big money for Warners which came out over the Christmas holiday break.

Sure ticket prices are higher today than they have ever been, but we have home cinema systems today which are more affordable than ever and make staying in and watching a video a better experience than ever, couple this with the ever growing Blu-ray and video on demand market and it's a real challenge for the multiplexes.

Looking at the top earners of recent years though and they are all films which are better experienced on a large screen rather than youre at home 50 inch plasma. Except for last years top film, Mamma Mia, which for some reason took on a life of its own?
