Oscar nominations: ‘Lincoln’ tops list with 12

This morning, everyone in Hollywood woke up early for one of the biggest days in the industry: the Oscar nominations announcement. Actress Emma Stone and this year's Oscar host/Family Guy creator, Seth MacFarlane, announced the nominations this morning in Los Angeles.

Lincoln earned the most nominations, coming in with 12, including nods for Best Picture, Actor In a Leading Role (Daniel Day-Lewis), Actor In a Supporting Role (Tommy Lee Jones), Actress In a Supporting Role (Sally Field) and Directing (Steven Spielberg). Coming in behind Lincoln with 11 nominations is Life Of Pi

The Actress In a Leading Role category saw two firsts: Quvenzhané Wallis, the nine-year-old star of Beasts Of The Southern Wild is the youngest actress to ever be nominated for the category. In that same category is Emmanuelle Riva who starred in Amour, is the oldest actress to ever be nominated for the category.  

Of course, it wouldn't be the Academy Awards if there weren't a few snubs. In the Best Director category, three were overlooked: Catherine Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty), Ben Affleck (Argo) and Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained). However, all three movies were nominated for Best Picture.
