2013 Academy Awards: And the Nominees Are...

Happy Oscar Nominations Morning, everyone! I imagine this must be what sports games fans feel like the day of "The Draft" (whatever that actually is).

The announcement comes two weeks earlier than usual, seemingly to get eyes back on the Academy Awards and away from some of the other awards season regulars (hello, Golden Globes). Whatever the case may be, it feels good to have Oscar back.
