Academy Awards 2013 Nominations

Oscar.jpgHere we are, just as the BAFTAs have been announced and today the Academy Awards 2013 have arrived with their announcements for their awards for the last year and it's not a hugely different list although there are a few less for Skyfall and a bit more love for Spielberg.

I have to say that unlike previous years there aren't any nominations that have me perplexed, this year it's a pretty good list and a well deserving one too.

Why don't you have a look through and see what you think? Have I missed any that need pulled up? What do you think of that Best Picture list? I'm glad to see Argo there, will Zero Dark Thirty win anything?
