Oscars 'Category Hopping' Benefits Stars, Studios

Oscar nominations are announced Tuesday, and Nicole Kidman is a shoo-in for a best actress nomination for her portrayal of writer Virginia Wolfe in "The Hours." Meryl Streep also is a contender, but Julianne Moore -- who was onscreen longer than Kidman -- most likely will be considered for best supporting actress. Robert Osborne, host of Turner Classic Movies and author of 70 Years of the Oscar, says category hopping isn't new.
