“You ladies never have to pretend to be attracted to Harry Weinstein again.” ~~ Seth MacFarlane, American actor, comedian, producer, director, and singer, quoted during Oscar 2013 announcements (January 10, 2013 (Just had to repost his quote, one of my favorite Oscar announcement flashbacks :)

The Oscar nominations are here. "Thor" star, Chris Hemsworth, helped announce the 86th Academy Award Nominations with Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaac earlier today, January 16th at 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time.

Movies “American Hustle” and “Gravity” each have 10 nominations each. “12 Years a Slave” has nine. (Incidentally, Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky announced today they're expecting twins.)

Ellen DeGeneres, who hosted the Oscars in 2007, will return this year as the emcee of the ceremony, which will be telecast live on ABC on March 2 from the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood and Highland.

Amazingly, 2013 Oscar winner, Jennifer Lawrence, received another best supporting actress nominee for "American Hustle," making her the youngest actress to have 3 Oscar nominations by age 23.

"American Hustle," and "Gravity" nominations include Best Directing, Best Film Editing, Best Picture, Best Production Design and Best Actress in a Leading Role."

The Oscar nomination trend appears to have more competition in the best picture category. This year there are 9 nominees for best picture, as in last year.

A few disappointments mentioned by many correspondents and critics were that lead actor contenders Tom Hanks for "Captain Phillips" and Robert Redford for "All Is Lost" were not nominated. Also Emma Thompson for "Saving Mr. Banks," Oprah Winfrey for "Lee Daniels' The Butler" and Paul Greengrass for directing "Captain Phillips" did not receive Oscar nominations.

The Oscars are voted on by members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. More information on the voting process is available at the Academy's website.

Oscar night this year will be telecast live on ABC on March 2 from the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood and Highland.
