And the nominees are...

The full official roster of Oscar nominees were announced on the morning of Tuesday, January 25, 2011, and here we report on the nominees rocking curls!

The 83rd Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, February 27, 2011, telecast live from the historic Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on ABC at 8 p.m. EST. Curly head James Franco, along with the beautiful Anne Hathaway, will serve as the co-hosts of the show. And while, of course, we admire the hard work and dedication that all the nominees put into their work, we do admit we are a bit partial to the curlies who made the final cut. With that in mind, we offer this handy list of curly actresses and actors nominated for for Oscars—you know who we're rooting for!
