Seth's Oscar Gig: Questions
Everything you want to know about MacFarlane's hiring as MC.
They’re here!

At about 8:38AM ET this morning, Emma Stone and host Seth MacFarlane announced the nominations for the the 85th Annual Academy Awards.

Which stars and movies were nominated this year?

‘Lincoln’ was the big winner, picking up a whopping 12 nominations, the most of any film.

As expected, star Daniel Day-Lewis earned a nomination for playing the 16th President of the United States — as did his co-stars, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones.

Close behind ‘Lincoln’ was ‘Life of Pi,’ which was nominated for a staggering 11 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director (Ang Lee).

Among the major surprises: ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild,’ which earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Director (Benh Zeitlin) and star Quvenzhane Wallis. Wallis is now the youngest Best Actress nominee in Academy history, at age nine.

On the snubs side, jaws dropped when two supposed locks failed to hear their names called in the category for Best Director: Ben Affleck, for ‘Argo’; and past winner Kathryn Bigelow, for ‘Zero Dark Thirty.’ Instead, the directors branch went for two surprising choices: Michael Haneke, for ‘Amour’; and the aforementioned Zeitlin, for ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild.’

The 85th Annual Academy Awards air Sun., Feb. 24 on ABC.
