Les Mis producer disappointed at Oscar director 'snub'


The British musical Les Miserables has received eight Oscar nominations, including those for Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress.

The film's producer Eric Fellner said he has thrilled at the list, but admitted he was disappointed that the movie's director Tom Hooper did not receive a nomination.

He added: "It's a surprise...but there are a number of other omissions as well from the director list."
