The 2013 Oscar nominations have just been announced for the 85th Academy Awards which take place on 24th February 2013.
Actor Seth MacFarlane (who will host the 2013 Oscars) and Actress Emma Stone have just revealed the 2013 Oscar nominations live from the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverley Hills a fortnight earlier than usual. According to The Academy, this will give members and the public more time to see the films - many of which aren't on general release yet.
So, will it be a big year for Ben Affleck's hostage thriller, Argo? Or will Stephen Spielberg's historical blockbuster, Lincoln triumph over the all singing, all dancing Les Miserables? Maybe we'll see director Kathryn Bigelow crowned Best Director for a second time for gritty CIA drama, Zero Dark Thirty, nine-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis making history with a nomination for her amazing performance in Beasts of the Southern Wild or the James Bond franchise finally taken seriously by the Academy?
