Academy Awards: Oscars nominations

The latest news as the nominees for best film, actor, actress and others are announced

  • Quvenzhané Wallis is the youngest Oscar nominee for best actress

    1/10/2013 1:49:41 PM
  • Best Actor #OscarNoms: Bradley Cooper, Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Jackman, Joaquin Phoenix, Denzel Washington
  • Supporting Actor #OscarNoms: Alan Arkin, Robert De Niro, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tommy Lee Jones, Christoph Waltz
  • Well the awards are over, rushed through at breakneck speed, with lukewarm banter. A nice surprise that Beasts of the Southern Wild got such recognition
    1/10/2013 1:51:31 PM
  • Best Actress #OscarNoms: Chastain, Lawrence, Riva, Wallis and Watts.
  • Theme of Best Pic seems to be Americans on American history. For all the pomp of Lincoln and all the wit of Argo, Django is the bravest.
  • Denzel Washington missed out on a Bafta nomination, but makes the shortlist for Best Actor. However, yesterday a producer said Day-Lewis could carve his name on the statuette now. Many believe the same could be said of the Oscar
    1/10/2013 1:53:11 PM
  • Les Miserables director Tom Hooper, who won an Oscar in 2010 for The King's Speech, must be pleased Les Mis is up for best picture. But he's been passed over again (after the Baftas yesterday) in the directing category. He said yesterday his hopes are on Anne Hathaway

  • Oprah had Beasts of The Southern Wilds' back from the start. It's nom is more proof of her massive power in US.
  • Oscars host Emma Stone

    1/10/2013 1:54:43 PM
  • Lincoln is likely to play really well to the Academy, and the early running will be on the biopic for Best Film and Best Director.
    1/10/2013 1:54:46 PM
  • Lincoln is going to be an American favourite by a long shot. It is a biography of a beloved President directed by Steven Spielberg written by Angels in America playwright Tony Kushner, after all. There might be a pesky Brit in the title role, but Daniel Day-Lewis has a decent track record with the Academy.
    1/10/2013 1:55:26 PM
  • Supporting Actress #OscarNoms: Amy Adams, Sally Field, Anne Hathaway, Helen Hunt, Jacki Weaver
  • Lincoln has had pretty good crits all round but, as with any historical movie, especially the popular ones, the scholar have got their teeth into it. Put the quill down and back off says Kevin Levin, a civil war historian from Boston. Check out his piece in The Atlantic
    1/10/2013 1:56:04 PM
  • After it was ignored by the Baftas, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has been largely passed over by the Academy too. Peter Jackson might have thought that after The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King swept the 2004 awards with 11 statuettes he'd be in for a good shot. It is not Martin Freeman, pictured, who plays Bilbo Baggins', year for a gong.

    1/10/2013 1:56:15 PM
  • Even Lincoln's effing and jeffing is alright, according to Doris Kearns Goodwin author of Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln.
    1/10/2013 1:57:46 PM
  • David Sexton made this point in the Standard yesterday - a lot of 2013's noms look bionically-designed to win Oscars.
  • Best Director #OscarNoms: Michael Haneke, Benh Zeitlin, Ang Lee, Steven Spielberg and David O. Russell
  • British cinema-goers might be less familiar with American nominees Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field both of whom appeared in Lincoln.
    1/10/2013 1:58:42 PM
  • The Hollywood Reporter piece on Lincoln's cussin
    1/10/2013 1:59:21 PM
  • Er, Matilda... THE FUGITIVE. Everyone in Britain has seen The Fugitive
    1/10/2013 2:00:34 PM
  • Joaquin Phoenix said of his Bafta nomination yesterday "I'm uncomfortably honoured". What must he make of an Oscar nod? He has been nominated for best actor for The Master.
    1/10/2013 2:00:38 PM
  • Sorry Nick. Only 99% of Britons have seen the Fugitive, I think you'll find.
    1/10/2013 2:01:11 PM
  • "That's kinda cool, I got nominated. I get to go to the Oscars now." - @sethmacfarlane after his song nomination was announced #OscarNoms
  • First in my list of "Wos Robbed": John Hawkes for The Sessions, should have had a Best Actor nom. He's incredible. #oscarnoms
  • I would swap John Hawkes in for Hugh Jackman. I mean, COME ON.
  • James Bond may be getting a 50th year anniversary show, but beyond possibly Adele, will not be getting much else
    1/10/2013 2:02:54 PM
  • Host Seth MacFarlane was himself nominated for an original song gong for Ted. He will be up against British hopeful Adele with Skyfall

    1/10/2013 2:03:23 PM
  • Used up his best material before this morning's annoucement clearly
    1/10/2013 2:03:50 PM
  • In the fuss over Quvenzhané, let's not let Jennifer Lawrence's preternaturally mature performance escape notice. She was only 21.
  • Shortly after becoming the highest grossing film in UK box office history Skyfall secured eight Bafta award nominations. But the Oscars are famously prejudiced against franchise films.
    1/10/2013 2:05:01 PM
  • In their 50 year history Bond films have only received 7 Oscar nominations and only won 2 - both of them in technical categories. There were high hopes that Skyfall might get a best picture nod.
    1/10/2013 2:06:25 PM
  • Seth McFarlane might not be funny, but he's very relaxed about it. Credit for that. And his suit is proper shiny. #oscarnoms
  • Not sure Alan Arkin was really acting in Argo. Pretty sure that's who he really is. #oscarnoms
  • I'm interested to see who they miss out on purpose this year , the Academy awards are a joke and in no way reflective of the real best movies. If they dont give Andy Serkis and award just because its cgi they can just get lost
    1/10/2013 2:07:53 PM
  • Think Jennifer Lawrence has to be the frontrunner in the Best Actress category for an extraordinarly nuanced performance in what is essentially a formulaic, if interesting, romcom in Silver Linings Playbook. Jessica Chastain will be a strong challenger though. Great to see Quvenzhané Wallis's name there
    1/10/2013 2:08:51 PM
  • 'Hitchcock' the film totally overlooked (despite two great performances), but then so was Hitch himself. The ultimate Oscar #fail #oscarnoms
  • Neither of Britain's grande Dames Judi Dench or Helen Mirren, pictured, received a nomination this year despite huge buzz. The former was for her performance as M in Skyfall and the latter for Mirren in Hitchcock

    1/10/2013 2:09:46 PM
  • RT @piersmorgan: ...already clear that @SethMacFarlane is going to be a wonderfully inappropriate, snarky and hilarious host.
  • Glad to see that the Academy has taken note of Zero Dark Thirty despite the row going on between filmmakers and US Senators over suggestions in the film that torture was used to obtain information in the hunt for al-Qa'ida leader Osama bin Laden Senators slam ‘gross inaccuracies’ in Katherine Bigelow film Zero Dark Thirty
    1/10/2013 2:14:56 PM
  • RT @unknownshoulder: @MsEllenEJones Quite. A two foal race for this one.
  • How would you describe this year's #OscarNoms in three words?
  • Jennifer Lawrence who was last night voted favourite actress at the People's Choice Awards - quickly followed by an Oscar nomination. The Hunger Games received six PCA gongs at the LA ceremony.

    1/10/2013 2:17:29 PM
  • At the Baftas, Django Unchained missed out but Quentin Tarantino made the director's category. Just to be contrary it's the other way rond at the Oscars
    1/10/2013 2:17:38 PM
  • RT @IsmailSakalaki: @TheAcademy Full of surprises.
