Both oldest and youngest actress ever among Best Actress nominees

Eclectic. That's the only word to describe the films up for top honors at this year's Oscar show, which will be hosted by Set McFarlane live by ABC from Hollywood's Dolby Theatre on February 24. While Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln," leads the pack with 12 nominations, there was no sure thing among this year nominees for cinematic excellence.

Emma Stone and Seth McFarlane announced the nominees for this year's Oscars in a ceremony today.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Nothing was more indicative than the nominees for Best Actress this year. Eighty-five-year old Emmanuelle Riva, who plays a woman battling Alzheimer's in "Amour," is the oldest actress to be nominated in the category, and 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis, who plays a young girl in "Beasts of the Southern Wild," is the youngest-ever nominee in the category.

Oddly, although "The Life of Pi," didn't register in any of the acting categories, it still managed to amass the second-highest number of nominations with 11. In addition to Ang Lee's directing nomination, it picked up an adapted screenplay nom for David Magee, song and score nominations and technical nominations ranging from its cinematography to its visual effects.

There were lots of surprises in the Best Picture category, with the French-language drama "Amour," and the indie breakout "Beasts of the Southern Wild," as well as "Argo,," "Django Unchained,," "Les Miserables,," "Life of Pi,," "Silvers Linings Playbook," and "Zero Dark Thirty.,"

There were some clear-cut "snubs," due to the capricious nature of the Hollywood. The musical "Les Miserables," received eight nominations, that film's director Tom Hooper didn't make the cut in the best directing category. "Zero's," Kathryn Bigelow, an Oscar winner three years ago for "The Hurt Locker," was among the missing in that category, in addition to "Argo's," Ben Affleck.

Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone unveiled the nominations at the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills this morning. MacFarlane is only the second Oscar host to take part in the nominations announcements, following Charlton Heston in 1972.
