As for this year's awards, director Steven Spielberg's historical drama "Lincoln" earned a leading 12 nominations Thursday for the 85th Annual Academy Awards, followed by Ang Lee's "Life of Pi" with 11, while the musical, "Les Miserables," directed by Tom Hooper, and David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" tied with 8 nods each.

"Lincoln" was nominated for best picture and gave Spielberg his eighth best director nomination. A win would be his third in the director category. It's the eighth film Spielberg has had in the running for best picture (''Schindler's List'' won in 1994).

"Lincoln" also garnered a best acting nod for two-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln and supporting acting nominations for Sally Field—a two-time best actress winner who played Lincoln's wife Mary Todd—and Tommy Lee Jones as a radical antislavery legislator.

"Lincoln" also received nominations for cinematography, costume design, film editing, original score, production design, sound mixing and adapted screenplay.

The dream-like fantasy adventure "Life of Pi" was nominated for best
picture, best director, original song —"Pi's Lullaby"—adapted screenplay, cinematography, film editing, original score, production design, sound editing and mixing and visual effects.

"Les Miserables," a film adaptation of the long-running musical set in 19th century France, got acting nods for lead Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean and Anne Hathaway in her supporting role as Fantine, as well as nominations for costume design, makeup, original song—"Suddenly"—production design and sound mixing.

The Weinstein Company's "Silver Linings Playbook's" eight nominations included best picture and across-the-board nods for its actors: Bradley Cooper—who played a man recently released from a psychiatric institution, and Jennifer Lawrence, his romantic foil—as leads and Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver in supporting roles.

Today's nominations set records for the oldest and youngest nominees.
French actress Emanuelle Riva, 85, received a nomination for best actress for her role in`Amour,'' nominated for both best picture and best foreign film.

And 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis became the youngest-ever best actress nominee for her portrayal of Hushpuppy in "Beasts of the Southern Wild."

Both Riva and Wallis are first-time nominees, along with Cooper and Jackman.

The youngest acting nominee in all categories is still Justin Henry, who was eight when he was nominated for "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979) and the oldest remains Gloria Stuart, 87 when she received a supporting nomination for "Titanic."

"Silver Linings Playbook" is the first film to take nominations for best picture, directing, writing and all four acting categories since "Reds'' (1981).

The Academy Awards ceremony is scheduled for Feb. 24 at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center. It will be televised live domestically on ABC and in more than 225 foreign countries.
