Listen to our special Oscar nominations edition, episode 8 of our audio podcast Deadline Awards Watch, With Pete Hammond. Deadline Awards Columnist Hammond and host David Bloom analyze the just-announced Oscar nominations, from frontrunners Lincoln, Life of Pi and Silver Linings Playbook, to powerhouse foreign-language film entry Amour, to still-in-it challengers Les Miserables and Zero Dark Thirty.

With tremendously competitive fields in the director and acting categories, among others, they take a look at the inevitable snubs of deserving work. And finally, Disney projects had a very big day in the Best Animated Feature category, but one little British company also managed to sneak in at the expense of a big Disney rival.
