<font color= red>UPDATE:</font> Watch The Nominations For The 85th ACADEMY AWARDS Live Right Here

Things kick off in a little under an hour, when Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone will announce the nominations for this year's Oscars. TDKR is the big CBM hope outside of any technical nods, but we'll be keeping a close eye on Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained too..

The nominations will be announced this morning at 8:30 a.m. ET/5:30 a.m. PT by host Seth MacFarlane and actress Emma Stone at the Academy's Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. You can watch the live feed below, then drop back for a full list of the noms and to see if we had any CBM joy afterwards. For now sound off below - do you think Christopher Nolan and The Dark Knight Rises have any chance?

UPDATE: Nothing for TDKR unfortunately, but Django Unchained picked up a best picture nom, and Christoph Waltz a best supporting actor nod too. Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: First Class) and Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises) also picked up nominations for Silver Linings Playbook and Les Miserables respectively. As usual, any love shown to CBM/fantasy/sci-fi was left for the visual effects category, in which The Avengers, The Hobbit and Prometheus scored noms. Here is the list of the major nominations.
