Lincoln makes history with Critics' Choice nominations

Lincoln's record-breaking year

The Critics' Choice Movie Awards have a thing for Steven Spielberg. Or should we say Abraham Lincoln? Either way, the director's latest film leads the pack of the 2013 nominees.

Lincoln

Is Lincoln the one to beat at next year's Oscars? The Broadcast Film Critics Association seems to think so. Tuesday morning, the film was nominated for a record-breaking 13 Critics' Choice Movie Awards. Grab a glass of cold water, because the competition is heating up!

Lincoln wasn't the only one to go above and beyond expectations. The musical Les Miserables scored 11 nominations. They'll both duke it out for Best Picture alongside Argo, Django Unchained, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Life of Pi, The Master, Moonrise Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty.

In the acting categories, there are a few notable additions. Quvenzhane Wallis from Beasts of the Southern Wild scored two nominations: Best Young Actor/Actress and Best Actress, where she'll battle the likes of Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) and Marion Cotillard (Rust and Bone).

Plus, Matthew McConaughey is still riding Magic Mike's wave of success. His role as a strip-club owner earned him a nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Fingers crossed that his country twang and leather chaps make it to the Oscars.
