The 2013 Oscar Nominees Are…

Celebs don't like to be woken up early…except on Oscar nomination day! At 5:30 AM Hollywood time on Thursday, 10 January, Seth MacFarlane--host of this year's 24 February ceremony--and It Girl Emma Stone announced the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards. And certain lucky actors were no doubt very excited to be woken up by their phone ringing! (Seth did suggest they move this tradition to noon, however.)

As usual, there were a few surprises—and snubs—in a list of largely expected names. "Lincoln," "Life of Pi" and "Les Miserables" all snagged Best Picture nods as expected, with "Lincoln" the front-runner with 12 nominations. But while "Argo," "Django Unchained," and "Zero Dark Thirty" all got Best Picture nods, their directors (Ben Affleck, Quentin Tarantino, and Kathryn Bigelow) were all snubbed.

Among the happy surprises: relatively low-profile movie "Silver Linings Playbook" got a Best Picture nod and nominees in all four acting categories—including Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro, and Aussie actress Jackie Weaver, whose name was hardly mentioned as a potential contender. And "Beasts of the Southern Wild" scored Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay nominations plus a Best Actress nod for the enchanting Quvenzhané Wallis, the youngest nominee ever.

With an interesting mix of talents in contention--and a preview of Seth MacFarlane's quippy style as Oscars host--we're already super excited for this year's ceremony! Here are the fantastic films and talented folks nominated for major 2013 Academy Awards. Stay tuned to Movies.MTV for all the latest breaking Oscars news, photos, and scoop!
