Oscar nominations 2013

Seth MacFarlane is the host for the 85th Academy Awards, he looks and sounds like a breath of fresh air for the show.

I was surprised to see Beasts of the Southern Wild (my review) nabbed 4 nominations: Best Director (Benh Zeitlin), Best Adapted Screenplay (Lucy Alibar,Benh Zeitlin), Best Actress (Quvenzhané Wallis) and Best Picture. If I were to speculate, it would be to promote a younger US director?! Zeitlin is only 30, but has been making movies since 6.

Michael Haneke‘s Amour(2012) nominated for both Best Picture and Best Foreign Language Film. Emmanuelle Riva for Best Actress as well. IMDb put Germany-made, the Academy put Austria?

Those will be the dark horses. The rest were as expected, except Denzel Washington is nominated for Best Actor in Flight (2012). 

No directorial nomination for either Quentin Tarantino or Ben Affleck.

Oscar night is Sunday Feb 24, 2013.
