2013 Oscar Nominations Released: No Christopher Nolan; The Avengers Gets Nominated

Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone revealed the 2013 Oscar nominees this morning (watch the video here).

We see that Lincoln, which was produced by new Star Wars showrunner Kathleen Kennedy, took the most honors by nabbing 12 spots.

Some sites are already reporting that Christopher Nolan and The Dark Knight Rises got snubbed as they didn't make the list for any category. I don't really have a problem with it as the movie - plain and simple - wasn't all that good.

What we do see that made the list is Marvel Studios and Joss Whedon's The Avengers for the "Best Visual Effects" category. The Avengers is up against The Hobbit, Life of Pi, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Ridley Scott's Prometheus. It would be nice if the Assemblers came out on top; overall it's a great movie, even though for some reason a lot of sites are reporting it as the "most overrated of 2012," most likely the same sites that were glorifying it in reviews the week it came out. I'll admit I loved Prometheus' visuals, but despised the movie.

Here's the complete 2013 Oscars list with it looking like that in addition to Lincoln -- Skyfall, Argo, Amour and The Master, which starred Amy Adams from the Man of Steel, took a lot of spots as well. Argo and Skyfall, however, see none for "Best Director" for Ben Affleck and Sam Mendes, respectively.
