The 85th Academy Awards nominations were announced this morning. Steven Spielberg's biopic "Lincoln" led the nominations with 12 total. The other best picture nominees include: “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” “Life of Pi,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Les MisÚrables,” “Argo,” “Amour,” “Django Unchained,” and “Zero Dark Thirty."
But the morning’s real surprise was a triple snub in the best director category: Neither Kathryn Bigelow, who directed “Zero Dark Thirty,” nor Ben Affleck, who directed “Argo,” nor Quentin Tarantino, who directed “Django Unchained,” were included among the five directing nominees.
The Oscar telecast will be Sunday, February 24, 2013.
Today's weather forecast from TylerPaper.com's mobile app is there is a Lake Wind Advisory in effect in East Texas until 6 p.m. It’s mostly cloudy with a chance of morning showers. The high will be a warm 66 degrees with a low tonight of 47.
Come back later today for our Midday Update and have a great Thursday.
