The big winners today in terms of the number of nominations they have received are Lincoln (12 nominations) and director Ang Lee’s Life of Pi (11 nominations).
The next most nominated movies both earned 8 nominations. The movie adaptation of legendary stage musical Les Miserable shared its joint 3rd place in the nominations with the much less fancied Silver Linings Playbook.
Silver Linings Playbook also became the first movie since Warren Beatty’s film Reds in 1982 to obtain nominations in all 4 acting categories (Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress).
It was almost impossible to think that Lincoln and Life of Pi wouldn’t make it onto the shortlist for Best Movie but this year’s list of 9 movies did throw up the odd surprise. In particular we guess you would have got very good odds on Benh Zeitlin’s fantasy movie Beasts of the Southern Wild making it to the final list of the year’s best 9 movies. Beasts of the Southern Wild, which centres on the story of a 6-year old girl called Hushpuppy who lives in a Louisiana bayou community, is nominated for a further 3 Academy Awards including a Best Director nomination for Zeitlin.

The girls, who have all been described as “posh totty’, posted the topless photo on Made In Chelsea cast member Alexandra Felstead’s Twitter account @BinkyFelstead.
ALthough they are keen to show how hot they are the most revealing photo comes from 22-year old Edinburgh University student Louise Thompson. Don’t get any big ideas though as Louise has earlier posted some photos of herself on the beach in St Barts with her boyfriend and fellow cast member Spencer Mattthews. It was thought they had split up from the MIC episode aired over Christmas but the pictures tell a different story.
It has to be said that if you are looking to bump into some celebrities next Christmas then St Barts might be a good place to go as there have been any number of beach photos posted from the Caribbean island over the Christmas period.
The recently released Twitter photo of the Made On Chelsea girls also features Millie Mackintosh, current squeeze of Professor Green. Apart from looking really hot Millie is also the heiress to the Mackintosh’s confectionery firm which produces Rolo and Quality Street sweets.
