3 Things You Needed to Know About the 2013 Oscar Nominations

With Gravity, American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave making the headlines for the Oscars, there are a couple of other aspects too that might have seemed surprising, predictable or even shocking to a number of people.

So, here are 3 things you need to know about the 2013 Oscar nominations:

#1: A diverse ‘Best Picture’ list

Consider the list of movies for the ‘best picture’ nominations: whether it’s Gravity, Nebraska, 12 Years a slave or even Her, the list is diverse. Think about it: a 3D space thriller, a black and white road movie, historical drama or even a man who falls in love with his operating system.

#2: The films that got nothing

Lee Daniel’s “The Butler” got nothing despite the backing of Harvey Weinstein. An American story that is told through the eyes of an African-American servant and with a number of prominent actors playing roles as a number of US Presidents. Oprah Winfrey would have gotten the nod for best supporting actress but that did not materialize either. Ron Howard’s “Rush” also suffered the same fate with Chris Hemsworth playing the lead role.

#4: Real surprises (in a good way!)

The Wolf of Wall Street got a number of nominations including best actor, best director, best supporting actor and for the adapted screenplay. Sally Hawkins was nominated for best supporting actress for playing Ginger in Blue Jasmine. But Philomena and the nomination of Judi Dench as leading actress were never certainties but were given the approving nod as well.
