As for the Best Actress and Best Actor nominations, Daniel Day Lewis' nod for his portrayal of "Lincoln" was no surprise, nor was Anne Hathaway's and Hugh Jackman's for their work in "Les Miserables." Also expected to get nominated were Jessica Chastain for "Zero Dark Thirty" and Naomi Watts for "The Impossible."
However, Denzel Washington's nod for his work in "Flight" was a bit of a surprise as was 85-year-old Emmanuel Riva's for her work in "Amour" and Joaquin Phoenix's for his work in the little known film "The Master."
