Earlier than I care for, the Oscar nominations were announced by Emma Stone and, to-be Oscar host, Seth McFarlane. There were certainly more than a few surprises (and huge snubs) for the 85th Academy Awards. Not surprisingly, Steven Spielberg's Oscar pandering sweeping epic, Lincoln, leads the way with 12 nominations. Ang Lee's self-righteous film snore visually stunning, Life of Pi, follows closely behind with 11.
Without any further ado, the official selection for the 85th Academy Awards!
EDIT: Just the Big 5 (more will come later)
Now that I'm out of class, here is the complete list.
