The 2013 Oscar nominations were announced this morning by Oscar host and ‘Family Guy‘ creator Seth MacFarlane and ‘Gangster Squad‘ star Emma Stone at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. MacFarlane is the first Oscar host to actually announce the nominees since Charlton Heston’s turn in 1972. So who are the 2013 Oscar nominees? Who were the big surprises and the big snubs? Find out!

The 2013 Oscar nominations were broadcast from Los Angeles and if you didn’t watch the announcements live, you can watch a replay using the YouTube player below. Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone only revealed the nominees in the major categories so make sure to check below to see the full list of 2013 Oscar nominees.

UPDATE: The full list of Oscar nominees are below! ‘Lincoln’ was the big winner with 12 total nominations. It was a surprising morning that included snubs for Ben Affleck and Kathryn Bigelow for their work directing ‘Argo’ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ respectively. Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson, whose villainous turns in ‘Django Unchained’ left many thinking they were frontrunners for the Best Supporting Actor nomination, were passed over for their co-star Christoph Waltz (who previously won for another Quentin Tarantino film, ‘Inglourious Basterds’). ‘Amour’ and ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ were surprise nominations and ‘Beasts’ star Quvenzhané Wallis – who was six when the film was shot – becomes the youngest actor ever nominated for a lead performance.

Also surprising is that this marks the first Oscar nomination for ‘The Simpsons.’ Yes those ‘Simpsons.’ The long-running animated TV series was nominated for an Oscar for the theatrical short film ‘Maggie Simpson in “The Longest Daycare”.’

It’s also to note that ‘Les Miserable’ will go up against ‘Ted’ for Best Original Song, which makes for an interesting competition.
