Lincoln, featuring Daniel Day-Lewis and directed by Stephen Spielberg, is the big winner of Oscar nominations.

In the directing category, surprisingly, neither Kathryn Bigelow, who directed Zero Dark Thirty, nor Ben Affleck, who directed Argo, nor Quentin Tarantino, who directed Django Unchained, got nominations.
