Nominations for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards were announced this morning in Los Angeles. The King’s Speech earned the most nominations, 12 total, including Best Picture. True Grit takes second place with 10, including one Best Supporting Actress nod for 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld (which puts her up against Golden Globe winner Melissa Leo, and co-star Amy Adams, for their performances in The Fighter). Award season favorites Natalie Portman and Annette Bening are nominated for Best Actress for their performances in Black Swan and The Kids Are All Right, respectively, which are both up for Best Picture as well. Other Best Actress nominees include Nicole Kidman for Rabbit Hole, Michelle Williams for Blue Valentine and Jennifer Lawrence for Winter’s Bone. For more, check out a full list of nominees. The Oscars ceremony airs Sunday, February 27th on ABC.
What makes Natalie Portman’s engagement ring so special isn’t just who gave it to her, but also who designed it and how it was made. Jeweler designer Jamie Wolf (inset), whose creations have also adorned Jessica Biel, Julia Roberts and Anne Hathaway, created the custom handmade ring with choreographer Benjamin Millepied, Portman’s now-fiancé. “Ben was exceptionally thoughtful and dedicated and patient to make sure we had everything right,” Wolf told InStyle, who as a former dancer for the New York City Ballet, has been friends with Millepied for over 15 years. (He even encouraged Wolf to audition as a company dancer for Black Swan, and she was cast film!) “We wanted everything about the ring to speak to things that are important to Natalie.” Therefore, in alignment with Portman’s ecofriendly and vegan ideals, the stone is an antique (round old mine cut diamond), the pave diamonds are certified as conflict-free, meaning no one was hurt or treated unfairly in the mining of the diamonds, and the platinum is recycled metal. “It was a lot of fun to work with him, he’s such a great guy and it’s such a great piece of jewelry,” Wolf said. “It speaks to my work and my taste on a personal level. I was really proud of how it turned out. It’s gorgeous.”

Though the Golden Globes are but a memory and the Oscars aren’t until February 27, there are plenty of red carpet events to look forward to in the meantime, including the BAFTA Awards in London. The nominations for the February 13 ceremony, considered by many to be the British equivalent of the Oscars, were announced this morning. Black Swan is a top contender; nominated for Best Film, Best Costume Design, and Best Hair and Makeup, while Golden Globe winner Natalie Portman garnered another Best Actress nod. We’re excited to see that Hailee Steinfeld also landed in the best leading actress category for True Grit, a first for the 14-year-old. And Easy A‘s Emma Stone is nominated for the Orange Wednesdays Rising Star Award, the only category decided on by a public online vote. (However, only U.K. residents are eligible.)
