The nominations for the 2013 Academy Awards, or Oscars, were announced by Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone this morning (January 10, 2013).

The ceremony, which will air Feb. 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, will also be hosted by MacFarlane.

Lincoln led the pack with 12 nominations, including Best Director, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress.

Joining Daniel Day-Lewis in the best-actor field are Bradley Cooper as a psychiatric patient trying to get his life back together in Silver Linings Playbook; Hugh Jackman as Victor Hugo’s tragic hero Jean Valjean in Les Miserables; Joaquin Phoenix as a Navy vet who falls in with a cult in The Master; and Denzel Washington as a boozy airline pilot in Flight.

Nominated for best actress are Jessica Chastain as a CIA operative hunting bin Laden in Zero Dark Thirty; Jennifer Lawrence as a troubled young widow struggling to heal in Silver Linings Playbook; Emmanuelle Riva (the oldest best actress nominee ever) as an ailing woman tended by her husband in Amour; Quvenzhane Wallis (at 9-years-old, the youngest nominee ever) as a spirited girl on the Louisiana delta in Beasts of the Southern Wild; and Naomi Watts as a mother caught up in a devastating tsunami in The Impossible.

There were some surprises in the announcement. In the Best Director category, 30 year-old Benh Zeitlin was nominated for Beasts of the Southern Wild, as was Michael Haneke for Amour, while Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty), Ben Affleck (Argo) and Tom Hooper (Les Miserables) did not receive nominations.
