News Ryan Lambie 10 Jan 2013 - 13:48

The nominations are in for the 2013 Oscars. Feast your eyes on the list within...

The nominations for the 85th Academy Awards have been announced, and especially for the occasion, we've rolled out the red carpet (well, hoovered the office) put on our finest tuxedos (well, dressing gowns) and opened a bottle of expensive bubbly (Tizer).

As ever, there are few true surprises among the various nominees. Take a look at who'll be up for a golden statue, and feel free to leave your messages of apoplectic fury in the comments section.  We'll forward them on to Emma Stone and Seth MacFarlane later.
