Seth McFarlane and Emma Stone announced the list of nominees for The Oscars awards today, see the list here.


Steven Spielberg's film "Lincoln" led The Oscar hopefuls with 17 nominations, but Cambridge's own Ben Affleck was left off the list of hopeful for best director today when the list of nominees was announced.

The Huffington Post reports that the media was abuzz when neither Affleck, Tom Hooper ("Les Miserables") nor Katherine Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty") made the list for Best Director.  

The trio's films did make the list of movies up for Best Picture, along with a host of others, including Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" and Ang Lee's "Life of Pi."

Best Actor nominees include former winners Daniel Day-Lewis ("Lincoln") and Denzel Washington ("Flight").

Jessica Chastain received a nod for her role in "Zero Dark Thirty," and will be up against Naomi Watts ("The Impossible") and Jennifer Lawrence ("Silver Linings Playbook") among others.
