The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced its nominations for the 2013 Academy Awards on Thursday.

The Oscars will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane and will air on Feb. 24 on ABC at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT. Emma Stone and MacFarlane announced the nominees on Thursday.

"Lincoln" led this year's nominations, including nods for Best Picture, Best Director for Steven Spielberg, and acting honors for Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones. Spielberg's film is up against his ex-wife's film "Zero Dark Thirty" in the Best Picture category. When Spielberg and Kathryn Bigelow went head-to-head in 2010 at the Academy Awards, Bigelow prevailed with her film "The Hurt Locker" over Spielberg's "Avatar."

"Django Unchained" and "Les Miserables" have not been out in theaters as long as some of the others films nominated at the Oscars, however, they are still considered great contenders.

Best acting nominations went to Daniel Day-Lewis for his performance as U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Hugh Jackman for "Les Miserables," Jessica Chastain for her role as a CIA agent in "Zero Dark Thirty" and Jennifer Lawrence for playing a young widow in "Silver Linings Playbook."

"Lincoln" also picked up nominations for best adapted screenplay and costumes.

James Bond film "Skyfall" won five nominations, including Best Original Song and Cinematography, but the British secret agent movie missed out on a coveted Best Picture mention.

The screen adaptation of musical "Les Miserables" got eight nominations, including Best Supporting Actress for Anne Hathaway as tragic heroine Fantine. But director Tom Hooper was left off the directing nominees, along with Ben Affleck for "Argo" and Tarantino for his violent slavery era Western "Django Unchained."

"Amour," a moving love story about an elderly couple, fared well with the Academy, receiving Best Picture and Best Director nominations for Michael Haneke, and a Best Lead Actress mention for 85-year-old Emmanuelle Riva, who became the oldest best actress nominee in the Academy's 85-year history.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, Quvenzhane Wallis, 9, became the youngest ever Best Actress Oscar nominee for her performance in the end of the world movie "Beasts of the Southern Wild," which also garnered a nod for its first time director Benh Zeitlin.
