2013 Oscar Nominations: ‘Lincoln,’ ‘Life of Pi’ Lead The Pack

2013 Academy Awards

Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln and Ang Lee’s Life of Pi have earned multiple nods at the 2013 Oscar nominations on Thursday morning.

Lincoln seemed to be the clear favorite this year; the film garnered a total of 12 Oscar nominations. Director Ang Lee’s critically acclaimed drama Life of Pi snagged an impressive 11 nominations. Les Miserables and David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook tied with eight nods.

While Spielberg received a Best Director nomination for Lincoln, Ang Lee was overlooked by the Academy for his work on the acclaimed drama. Tom Hooper and Ben Affleck were also passed over for their work on Les Miserables and Argo despite receiving several nominations.

The Best Picture category is loaded with critically acclaimed features, including Silver Linings Playbook, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and German director Michael Haneke’s Amour. Quentin Tarantino’s controversial western Django Unchained is also up for the award.

Emmanuelle Riva, the 85-year-old star of Amour, was recognized for her turn in the heartbreaking drama. This makes her the oldest actress to receive a Best Actress nomination. Quvenzhane Wallis, the nine-year-old who won over audiences in Beasts of the Southern Wild, is the youngest actress to be up for the Best Actress award.

Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence was also recognized by the Academy for her performance in David O. Russell’s drama. The actress was previously nominated for her turn in the 2010 thriller Winter’s Bone.

On the Best Actor front, Bradley Cooper also scored a nomination for his turn in Silver Linings Playbook. Daniel Day-Lewis, Denzel Washington, Hugh Jackman, and Joaquin Phoenix are up for the award as well.
