International Press Academy has announced the nominees for the 15th Annual Satellite Awards on December 1. Leading the way to win big at the prize-giving event is "Inception" which snatches 11 nominations out of 23 categories, followed by "127 Hours" which takes 9 nods.
Both films are up for best drama prize, competing with "Blue Valentine", "The King's Speech", "The Social Network", "The Town" and "Winter's Bone" among others. The moneymaker flick from Christopher Nolan and the emotionally arousing film from Danny Boyle also lead their stars, Leonardo DiCaprio and James Franco, to score a nod for best drama actor. Meanwhile, Nolan and Boyle themselves will face against each other for best director prize.
Also scoring a bunch of nods at Satellite Awards is "Social Network". Beside the best drama honor, the movie is nominated in best director, best actor, best adapted screenplay and three other categories. "Alice in Wonderland" grabs 5, being mentioned in Art Direction & Production Design, Costume Design, Original Song Visual Effects and Motion Picture (Animated or Mixed Media) categories.
Currently playing "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" has a chance to take home kudos for Cinematography and Original Score. Meanwhile, summer hit "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" grabs two noms, all for Original Song.
People could find out the winners for 2010 Satellite Awards soon for the "ceremonious occasion" will be held on December 19 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Century City.
