OSCAR 2013 NOMINATIONS: QUVENZHANE WALLIS AGED 9, IS YOUNGEST BEST ACTRESS NOMINEE IN HISTORY OF THE ACADEMY AWARDS AND EMMANUELLA RIVA, 85, THE OLDEST

Record breaker: Quvenzhané Wallis has been announced as the youngest ever Oscar nominee for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her role in Beasts Of The Southern Wild

Only in Hollywood could a tiny, low-budget tale of a little girl named Hushpuppy who lives in the bayou take on a historical epic by master filmmaker Steven Spielberg about the 16th president’s struggle to end slavery and the Civil War.

But “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and “Lincoln” will both be vying for best picture and best director at the 85th Academy Awards ceremony, after Thursday morning’s Oscar nominations saw some shocking omissions, delightful surprises and Oscar history being made.

Rounding out the nine best picture nominees are: “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Argo,” “Les Miserables,” “Life of Pi,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Amour” and “Django Unchained. The other nominees for best director are Ang Lee for “Life of Pi,” David O. Russell for “Silver Linings Playbook,” Michael Hanekefor “Amour” and Benh Zeitlin for “Beasts of the Southern Wild.”
