The 2013 Academy Awards nominations were announced early Thursday morning with comic flair by host Seth MacFarlane and actress Emma Stone. The historic epic “Lincoln” expectedly received many of the noms (12 in all), but there were a few surprises – and marked omissions – on the list.
“Beasts of the Southern Wild” received a lot of Oscar love. The otherworldly film about a young girl using her immense imagination to overcome dire circumstances garnered several nods, including for Best Picture and a Best Actress nod for 9-year-old star Quvenzhané Wallis, making her the youngest actress to receive an Oscar nomination. The film’s director, Benh Zeitlin, surprised many by picking up a Best Director nom, beating a few favorites (see below).
