    Default 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.

    How in the fuck is Tom Hooper not nominated for BEST DIRECTOR for LES MIS? Like seriously, that's a travesty!

    And yeah, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, while quirky and at times decent...it's not Oscar worthy by any stretch of the imagination...for none of the categories it's been nommed in.

    and yeah Anne Hathaway needs to win Best Supporting. There is no one on that list that can even get close to matching her in LES MIS as Fantine. NO ONE.

    I'm opinionated. Be forewarned.

    And apparently, that tenth spot reserved for either a blockbuster or an SF film or something animated sitting empty means...

    - They figure they have their bases covered with Life of Pi

    - Brave and Wreck It Ralph weren't that good

    - They don't feel they owe Chris Nolan anything for his Dark Knight snub

    - Looper was too smart for the academy

    Affleck and Bigelow missing Best Director is a shock. Seems like it was a three way race between them and Spielberg and their movies for BP, but that's clearly not the case.

    And looks like Harvey Weinstein will buy the Oscars again, just like in the previous two years. And when Chicago won. And when Shakespeare in Love won. And when the English Patient won.

    At least Haneke finally got an Oscar nomination. About damn time.
    To be or not to be. That's not really a question.

    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.

    SKYFALL is up for Best Cinematography...which it totally deserves to win as it was shot GORGEOUSLY throughout.

    No, LOOPER isn't in there because it's a scientifically incorrect, and divisive nightmare.

    DOCTOR WHO does time travel Timey wimey better in its sleep than LOOPER.

    And the 3rd act which comes out of nowhere is hackneyed.
