Meanwhile, Quentin Tarantino's slavery Western "Django Unchained," opening Christmas Day, earned nods for director and best dramatic picture as well as supporting actor nominations for Leonardo DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz. Among the nominations for Ben Affleck's political thriller "Argo" were nods for director, best dramatic picture, and supporting actor for Alan Arkin.

Among the big surprises: "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,"  a romantic comedy that was nominated for best comedy or musical picture, as well as grabbing actor and actress nominations for Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor.

Among the biggest snubs: “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” considered by many award prognosticators as a leading contender for a best picture Oscar and a best actress Oscar for young star Quvenzhané Wallis, was completely blanked.
