Actress Emma Stone and Seth MacFarlane, who is also hosting this year’s broadcast, announced the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards today at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

According to the Oscar website, a show host has not participated in the nominations announcement since 1972, and since the nominations were unveiled at 5:30 a.m. it may be another 40 years before another host does it again.

Of the movies nominated for Best Picture, “Lincoln” and “Life of Pi” both received the most nominations with 12 and 11, respectively. “Les Miserables” and “Silver Linings Playbook” tied with eight nominations each.

“Argo” received seven nominations followed with five nominations each for “Amour,” “Django Unchained,” and “Zero Dark Thirty.” “Amour” is nominated for Best Picture and Best Foreign Language Film. The dark horse nominee for Best Picture, “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” was also nominated for Directing, Writing (Adapted Screenplay), and Actress in a Leading Role.
