We're going all out for Oscars



Oscar nominations arrive Tuesday, a month earlier than usual, now that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has moved its annual statue-giving ceremony to Feb. 29.

The schedule change prompted other organizations to do the same, leading to a frenzy of award announcements, and a blizzard of publicity for Oscar hopefuls.

On Wednesday, find complete coverage of this year's nominations, plus details on a new contest that lets you compete for vacation trips, movie passes and other prizes by predicting who will win this year's most coveted film awards.
