Thursday, January 10, 2013

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

The movie got 12 nods, including Best Movie, Best Director, and Best Leading Actor. Close behind was Ang Lee's Life of Pi, with 11 nominations, and Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook, with 8 nominations each.

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.
