The frenetic buzz of awards season continues today with the Film Academy’s announcement of 2013′s Oscar nominees. Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln racked up an impressive twelve nods, best picture and best actor included. Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, and Naomi Watts are up for the Actress in a Leading Role award, as are 85-year-old Amour star Emmanuelle Riva (the oldest nominee in the category in history) and 9-year-old Beasts of the Southern Wild lead Quvenzhané Wallis (the category’s youngest nominee in history). Amy Adams, Anne Hathaway, Sally Field, Helen Hunt, and Jackie Weaver are in the running for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, while the leading actor list includes Bradley Cooper, Joaquin Phoenix, Denzel Washington, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Hugh Jackman. Lincoln, Les Misérables, Life of Pi, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Zero Dark Thirty, Silver Linings Playbook, Amour, Django Unchained, and Argo are all up for Best Picture.
Naturally, during the ceremony on Feburary 24, we’ll have our eye on the stars’ red carpet styles. But with so many period films released in 2012, the masterminds behind this year’s blockbuster costumes are deserving of recognition, too. Jacqueline Durran is nominated in the Achievement in Costume Design category for the 19th-century Russian finery she designed for Anna Karenina (left), while Paco Delgado was nominated for Les Misérables. Joanna Johnston is also on the list for Lincoln‘s Civil War-era garb, and Eiko Ishioka and Colleen Atwood were nominated for Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman, respectively.

Tom’s Not Fit To Be Tied, Marc Jacobs On His Favorite Show Ever, Stella McCartney On The Move, And More…-------
Turns out there’s a medical explanation for Tom Ford’s oft-exposed chest. “I can only wear [ties] for a few hours and then I start to get a migraine,” the designer reveals in a new hour-long documentary for the Oprah Winfrey Network. He doesn’t like neckwear, but he does like baths, it turns out—up to five a day. [Fashionologie]
Monday’s CFDA Awards are looking more and more starry. In addition to host Anderson Cooper, Naomi Watts and Gerard Butler will be on hand to present. [WWD]
Stella McCartney is following her father into the recording studio—literally. The designer is packing up her Meatpacking store and setting up shop at 112 Greene Street, a former recording space for artists like Run DMC and Salt ‘N Pepa. The new location will open its doors in 2012. [Elle]
Marc Jacobs sits down with WWD for a revealing interview in anticipation of his Lifetime Achievement Award from the CFDA—though he’d rather think of it as the less-valedictory “In-the-Process-of.” Among the revelations? He calls Fall ’11′s Louis Vuitton show the most beautiful he’s ever done, but his favorite show of all time remains his famous grunge presentation for Perry Ellis. [WWD]
