Academy Awards 2013 Nominations Announced

The nominations for the 85th Academy Awards were announced today by a supposedly drunk Seth MacFarlane. Making jokes about Hitler and cast members banging their directors, the Family Guy star seemed reminiscent of Ricky Gervais and his infamous Golden Globes performances.

As usual, but in a lesser way than at the Golden Globes, many films missed out on deserved nominations, but some of the past year’s finest pictures were suitably rewarded.

To the surprise of no one US favourite Lincoln led the way in nominations, scooping twelve nods, combined with many more at the BAFTAS and Golden Globes. Life Of Pi trailed just behind with twelve.

As with the BAFTAS and Golden Globes The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was badly snubbed, picking up just three nominations in visual effects, production design and makeup and hairstyling.
