2013 Oscar Nominations

oscar-nomineesNominations for this year’s 85th annual Academy Awards were announced this morning and although the frontrunners were far from surprising, there were still quite a few unexpected choices. Steven Speilberg’s Lincoln leads with 12 nominations followed by Ang Lee’s Life of Pi with 11. Despite recognition in many other categories, Argo and Zero Dark Thirty failed to receive Best Director nods. In one of their places is Behn Zeitlin, whose film Beasts of the Southern Wild made a very strong showing, even garnering a Best Actress nod for its young star. The full list of nominees is below.
