‘No Country’ and ‘There Will Be Blood’ lead Oscar race

Dark and violent themes colored the Oscars nominations Tuesday as crime thriller "No Country for Old Men" and epic oil industry drama "There Will Be Blood" topped the list of contenders for this year's Academy Awards with eight nods each.

The two films edged out British historical drama "Atonement" and legal thriller "Michael Clayton," which both scored seven nominations in the much-anticipated shortlist for the marquee film awards on February 24.

The nominations were revealed in an early morning ceremony Tuesday at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science's Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in front of several hundred media in Beverly Hills.
