`Button' takes 13 Oscar noms, 'Slumdog' gets 10 - Yahoo! News

`Button' takes 13 Oscar noms, 'Slumdog' gets 10 - Yahoo! News: "The romantic fantasy 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' led Academy Awards contenders Thursday with 13 nominations, among them best picture and acting honors for Brad Pitt and Taraji P. Henson, and a directing slot for David Fincher.
Other best-picture nominees are 'Frost/Nixon,' 'Milk,' 'The Reader' and 'Slumdog Millionaire.'
As expected, Heath Ledger had a supporting-actor nomination for 'The Dark Knight' on the one-year anniversary of his death from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs. But the Batman blockbuster was shut out from other top categories such as best picture and director."
