After months of nail-biting speculation, and some voting hiccups, the 2013 Oscar nominees are here!

While the categories were filled with expected nominees, including "Lincoln,""Zero Dark Thirty" and "Les Miserables" for Best Picture, this year's list features plenty of surprises, too -- namely, "Beasts of the Southern Wild." The indie film, which premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival, racked up a Best Picture slot, along with a Best Director nomination for Behn Zeitlin and a Best Actress nod for nine-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis, the youngest actress to ever receive a nomination. (On the opposite end of the spectrum, Emmanuelle Riva, 85, became the oldest Best Actress Oscar nominee, with a nod for "Amour.") Other surprises included no Best Director nods for Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty") or Ben Affleck ("Argo"), as well as a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Jacki Weaver ("Silver Linings Playbook").

Elsewhere, Daniel Day-Lewis received his fifth Academy Award nomination, this time a Best Actor nod for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in "Lincoln." Joining him the category are Hugh Jackman for "Les Miserables," Denzel Washington for "Flight," Bradley Cooper for "Silver Linings Playbook" and -- despite bashing awards season several months ago -- Joaquin Phoenix for "The Master." Overall, "Lincoln" led the way with 12 nominations, followed by "Life of Pi" with 11 and "Les Mis" and "Silver Linings" tied with eight.

Ahead, check out the full nominees for the 84th annual Academy Awards. The Seth MacFarlane-hosted ceremony will air on February 24. Make sure to stay tuned to Moviefone until then for full awards season coverage.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this post stated that Emmanuelle Riva was the oldest nominee for an Academy Award; she is the oldest actor to be nominated in the category of "Best Actress." %VIRTUAL-MtGallery-236SLIDEEXPAND--272608%
