The 85th Oscar Nominations…And The Nominees Are

Posted January 10, 2013 by Max in Awards

LINCOLN

The Nominations for the 85th Annual Academy Awards. Just moments ago the nominations were announced by Oscar host Seth Macfarlane and Emma Stone. The Academy decided to go with nine nominations for Best Picture and the biggest surprises have to be the love for Amour and Beasts of the Southern Wild. While nominations don’t necessarily mean awards (here’s looking at you Master & Commander), its exciting that the Academy choose to mention these smaller films. Another quick thought, Best Director and Best Picture usually go hand in hand and if nothing else it looks as though the nominations have hurt Zero Dark Thirty and Argo. Will Lincoln sweep at the 85 Academy Awards? Tune in on Feb. 24 2013.

These are nominees who patiently await their chance to snag their own Oscar.
