The Academy Awards nominations were announced Tuesday morning in Beverly Hills.

As predicted, The Blind Side's Sandra Bullock scored a Best Actress nod, as did Best Actor nominee George Clooney for Up in the Air. (SEE A COMPLETE LIST OF OSCAR NOMINEES HERE)

But many stars were surprisingly shut out.

Look back on the hot couples (like Jen Aniston and John Mayer!) who hit the Oscars last year

Though his performance was critically lauded (and he scored a Screen Actors Guild Award nod), Brad Pitt didn't nab a Best Actor nomination for his role as Lt. Aldo Raine in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. Golden Globe nominee (and star of Nine) Daniel Day-Lewis also got shafted.

John Krasinski's wife-to-be Emily Blunt was ignored in the Best Actress category for The Young Victoria, even though she earned a Golden Globe nomination. Also shut out: Oscar winners Marion Cotillard, star of Nine, and Julia Roberts, star of Duplicity - both of whom received Golden Globe nominations.

Clint Eastwood was left out of the best directing category for the drama Invictus. Instead, honors went to James Cameron (Avatar); Katheryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker); Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds); Lee Daniels (Precious) and Jason Reitman (Up in the Air).

This year's Best Picture nominees - 10 films were nominated instead of the usual five - were predictable: Avatar: The Blind Side; District 9; An Education; The Hurt Locker; Inglourious Basterds; Precious; A Serious Man; Up: Up in the Air.

Some fans expected the comedy blockbuster The Hangover to earn a nod - it was up in the Best Comedy or Musical category in this year's Golden Globes - but it did not. Also ignored: Julie & Julia, Nine and Crazy Heart.
