The Oscar race for the 2013 Academy Awards is officially ON! The nominations for the 2013 Academy Awards were announced. And Django Unchained racked up. No individual nods for Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington or Sam Jackson (who we do feel should have gotten a supporting nod). But the movie itself landed four total.
Django is up for Best Original Screenplay, Best Motion Picture of the Year, Achievement in cinematography, and Achievement in sound editing. Christoph Waltz, who played Dr. Schultz, landed a nomination for Best Performance by an actor in a supporting role.
And a big congrats for Denzel Washington. He landed a nomination in one of the biggest categories for his role in Flight: Performance by an actor in a leading role.
Plus the youngest nominee in Oscar history at just 9 years old. She’s Houma, Louisiana native Quvenzhané Wallis!
For her movie Beats of the Southern Wild, she landed a nomination in the biggest category. She’s up for Performance by an actress in a leading role.
The movie itself has 3 nods: Achievement in directing, Best Motion Picture of the Year and Best Adapted Screenplay.
Congrats all around! The 2013 Academy Awards air February 24, 2013 on ABC with Seth McFarlane as the host.
