"Lincoln" Leads Oscar Nominations with 12 Nods

ABC(BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.) -- Lincoln is the leading nominee for the 85th annual Academy Awards.  The Steven Spielberg-directed film starring Daniel Day-Lewis in the title role picked up 12 nominations Thursday morning. 

The next most-nominated film is Ang Lee’s Life of Pi, with 11, followed by Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook, each of which received eight nominations.  

The nominations were revealed by Emma Stone and Oscar host Seth MacFarlane, who received a nomination himself in the Best Original Song category for co-writing “Everybody Needs a Best Friend,” from his movie Ted.

Nine films in all will compete for the Best Picture award; there could have been as many as 10 nominated.  Beasts of the Southern Wild, Silver Linings Playbook, Zero Dark Thirty, Lincoln, Les Miserables, Life of Pi, Amour, Django Unchained and Argo all received nods. 

In a surprising omission, Ben Affleck, Quentin Tarantino and Kathryn Bigelow, the directors of Best Picture nominees Argo, Django Unchained and Zero Dark Thirty, respectively, were shut out of the Best Director category.

The Best Actress category features both the oldest-ever and youngest-ever Oscar nominee.  Emmanuelle Riva, the star of the film Amour, is 85; tiny Quvenzhané Wallis, star of Beasts of the Southern Wild, is just 9 years old.

The 85th annual Academy Awards will air live on ABC Sunday, Feb. 24.  Here are the nominees in the categories announced Thursday morning:
