James Cameron and Jason Reitman are among six Canadians nominated for Oscars this year.
Both are nominated for Best Director; Cameron for Avatar and Reitman for Up in the Air. The two are in the running with Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), Quentin Tarentino (Inglorious Bastards) and Lee Daniels (Precious).
The other four Canadian nominees include Christopher Plummer, Best Supporting Actor for The Last Station; Neil Blomkamp, Best Adapted Screenplay, District 9; Dan Kaufman and Peter Meuyzers, part of a trio nominated for Best Visual Effects, District 9; and Gordon Sim, Best Set Decoration, Nine.
Surprisingly, Quebec director Xavier Dolan's debut film J'ai Tué Ma Mère (I Killed My Mother) was not among the nine nominees for Best Foreign Language Film.
The 82nd Academy Awards will be broadcast on Sunday, March 8, 2010. The show is hosted by Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.
