The 2013 British Academy Film Award nominations have been announced, with Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" leading the pack with 10 (though Spielberg himself was not nominated for best director). "Les Misérables" and "Life of Pi" were each nominated in nine categories, while "Skyfall" had eight nominations and "Argo" seven. "Zero Dark Thirty" joined all the aforementioned in the best film category -- save "Skyfall," which most expected would most definitely make the cut. Other snubs included Tom Hooper missing out on a best director nomination (Michael Haneke and Quentin Tarantino replaced him and Spielberg), Denzel Washington and John Hawkes not getting best actor nods (but Ben Affleck somehow did), and Naomi Watts failing to making the best actress cut.  And in the biggest surprise, the BAFTAs also shut out the homegrown "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" cast, including Judi Dench »
