Emma Stone and Seth MacFarlane unveiled the shortlist for this year's Academy Awards earlier today (10.01.13) and the Steven Spielberg-directed biopic - which stars Daniel Day-Lewis as pioneering US President Abraham Lincoln - leads the way, followed closely by Life of Pi, which is up for 11 honours.

The Best Actress nominees are Jessica Chastain for Zero Dark Thirty, Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence, Amour actress Emmanuelle Riva, Quvenzhane Wallis from Beasts of the Southern Wild and The Impossible actress Naomi Watts.

As well as Spielberg, Life of Pi's Ang Lee, Silver Linings Playbook filmmaker David O. Russell , Michael Haneke, who made Amour, and Beasts of the Southern Wild helmer Benh Zeitlin are up for Best Director.
