Oscar history is made in the best actress category

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Oscar host Seth MacFarlane and actress Emma Stone announced the nominees for the 85th Academy Awards on Thursday (January 10) in California. Best acting nominations went to Daniel Day-Lewis for his performance as U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Hugh Jackman for "Les Miserables," Jessica Chastain for her role as a CIA agent in "Zero Dark Thirty" and Jennifer Lawrence for playing a young widow in "Silver Linings Playbook." "Amour," a moving love story about an elderly couple, fared well with the Academy, winning best picture and best director nods for Michael Haneke, and a best lead actress mention for 85 year-old Emmanuelle Riva, who became the oldest best actress nominee in the Academy's 85-year history. At the opposite end of the spectrum, Quvenzhane Wallis, aged 9, became the youngest ever best actress Oscar nominee for her performance in the end of the world movie "Beasts of the Southern Wild," which also garnered a nod for its first-time director Benh Zeitlin.
