The Oscar Nominations For 2013 - Includes Video Of MacFarlane And Stone's Announcements
The Oscar nominations were this year announced by Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone, who between them made this the best nominations broadcast ever. In fact, it was better and funnier than most full Oscar shows.
MacFarlane's involvement makes this the first time that the host of the main show has revealed the noms since before I was born - therefore before he was born too. He also ended up being nominated for an award himself - for writing the lyrics to a song in Ted.
Watch the nominations in this player. They're no longer live but it should repeat.

The 85th Academy Awards will be announced on Sunday February 24th.
As predicted, Killing Them Softly was snubbed across the board when IMO it should have been nominated for Best picture, Best Director(Andrew Dominik), Lead actor (Brad Pitt) and Supporting Actor (Scoot Mcnairy). This and Holy Motors should definitely have had more of a presence than they did in the nominations (i.e. any), as where Life of Pi and Silver Linings have no business anywhere on the list. Also, I'm pretty blown away Tarantino didn't get his director nomination. Thought it was a lock this time.
I'm a little surprised Looper didn't get any technical nods. And I didn't expect it, but I'm still a little sad there weren't any FX or Cinematography noms for Dredd, which was one of the best looking movies of the last year.
At least they didn't give Nolan some sort of undeserved pitty nomination to appease the nerd fanbase.
