The Entertainment Press Society, Inc. (Enpress) will officially open this year's awards season with the staging of the 8th Golden Screen Awards (GSA) slated on April 2, 2011 at Teatrino at the Promenade in Greenhills, San Juan City, Metro Manila.

From over 40 films—both indie and mainstream—reviewed this year, only a handful made it to the official list of nominees.

Topping the list with the most number of nominees is the comedy film Here Comes The Bride, produced by Star Cinema ABS-CBN Film Productions and Quantum Films, with 15 nominations; including Best Motion Picture-Musical or Comedy, Best Director (Chris Martinez), and lead performances from Angelica Panganiban, Eugene Domingo, Tuesday Vargas, Jaime Fabregas, and John Lapus.

Sinundan ito ng Emir (Best Motion Picture-Musical or Comedy) ng Film Development Council of the Philippines, at Sigwa (Best Motion Picture- Drama) ng Beginning at 20 Plus.

Both films got 14 nominations each, including Best Direction para kina Chito Roño at Joel Lamangan.

Ang pelikulang Sa 'Yo Lamang ng Star Cinema ABS-CBN Film Productions ay nakakuha naman ng 11 nominations, including Best Motion Picture-Drama and Best Direction para kay Laurice Guillen.

Siyam na nominasyon ang nasungkit ng Muli, at tig-aanim naman ang mga pelikulang RPG Metanoia (AmbientMedia at Star Cinema ABS-CBN Films Productions), Ang Damgo Ni Eleuteria (Cinema One Originals at Panumduman Pictures), at Senior Year (Digitank Studio, Metric Films at Big Top Media).

Inaasahang magiging mahigpit ang labanan sa kategoryang Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role-Drama. Nominado para sa kategoryang ito sina Lorna Tolentino (Sa 'Yo Lamang), Bea Alonzo (Sa 'Yo Lamang), Dawn Zulueta (Sigwa), Donna Isadora Gimena (Ang Damgo Ni Eleuteria), Lovi Poe (Mayohan), at Meryl Soriano (Donor).

Sa anim na aktres na nominado para sa taong ito, tanging si Lorna pa lang ang nakapag-uwi ng isang Golden Screen trophy para sa Katas ng Saudi noong 2008.
