Oscar Nominations Announced! Who Made the Cut?

0110_noms_launch

Nominations for the 85th Academy Awards were announced by the lovely Emma Stone and the host of this year's Oscar telecast, Mr. Seth MacFarlane, Thursday morning in Beverly Hills.

"Lincoln" leads the pack with 12 nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director.

And while "Argo" was nominated for Best Picture, Ben Affleck was surprisingly left off the list when the directing honors were announced. Some considered him a frontrunner to win the award!

At 9-years-old, "Beasts of the Southern Wild" star Quvenzhane Wallis became the youngest star nominated for an actress statuette this morning, while 85-year-old "Amour" star Emmanuelle Riva is now the oldest nominated in the same category.

Other notable noms: Adele picked up her first Oscar nomination for "Skyfall," "The Avengers" got one nod for Visual Effects and "Hitchcock" picked up a makeup nom for Anthony Hopkins' transformation into the famous director.
