This ceremony had the unique distinction of having a real person and a character of the same name as nominees. Ryan Bingham
was nominated for (and won) Best Original Song for "The Weary Kind" from Crazy Heart
(2009). George Clooney
was nominated for Best Actor for playing a character named Ryan Bingham in Up in the Air
(2009). See more
Samuel L. Jackson
states that Up
is the second film to be nominated for both Best Picture and Best Animated Film. This is incorrect since the only other animated film to be nominated for Best Picture was Beauty and the Beast
, but it was not nominated for Best Animated Film. The category didn't exist in 1991. See more

Okay, so this was originally written for Cameron and Jude Law, but I stepped in at the last minute.
Thanks, Jude... I mean, Steve.
The truth is, both Steve and I are big fans of animated films. Here are some of the stars of this year's films, to talk about being nominated, and what it means to them.
