Best Supporting Actress Nominees 2013: Sally Field, Anne Hathaway & More To Compete For Honor

The Best Supporting Actress Nominees for the 2013 Oscars were announced early Thursday morning, with Anne Hathaway and Sally Field among those honored.

Heavy favorite Hathaway was nominated for her turn as Fantine in "Les Miserables." This would mark the actress' first Academy Award, though she was once nominated for Best Actress for her performance in "Rachel Getting Married." Field earned her place in the field by playing Mary Todd Lincoln, the wife of Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln."

If Field wins, this would be her third Oscar. She won two Best Actress awards, most recently in 1985 for "Places in the Heart."

The two stars will face off against Helen Hunt ("The Sessions"), Amy Adams ("The Master") and Jacki Weaver ("Silver Linings Playbook").

Seth MacFarlane, who announced the nominations with Emma Stone, will host the award broadcast on Feb. 24. Oscar are handed out to those who received the most votes from members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, a group of working professionals in cinema. More information on the voting process is available at the Academy's website. The Golden Globes -- which take place this Sunday -- are not voted on by industry insiders, but by the Hollywood Foreign Press.

A live-blog of Oscars season is available below, as is a gallery of those honored. Be sure to head back to HuffPost Entertainment for coverage of all things awards.

Ben Affleck Is Not Into Oscar Punditry

From backstage at the Oscars:

When did you feel a tipping point in your favor for this film?

Clooney: Michelle Obama.

Ben: When they gave us the trophies I was confident that we would win. I don’t get too much into the Oscar-ology and the pontificating. It doesn’t help me to read up on that stuff.

How Movies Change During Oscar Season

Here's Awards Daily blogger Sasha Stone just after "Argo" won Best Picture.

@ AwardsDaily :

See, I told you Argo was Crash incarnate. Won the same amount of awards even.

Here's Sasha Stone on "Argo" back in October:

Have you ever seen a movie where you walk out saying, “That was just a great f--king movie”? That’s Ben Affleck’s Argo. Inexplicably, a film that draws its strength from humor and suspense, winds up being more moving the second time through. Perhaps because once you have been through the suspense part of it you get to know the characters better and therefore care about their outcomes more.

Daniel Day-Lewis' Meryl Streep Joke

“It’s a strange thing, because three years ago, before we decided to do a straight swap, I had actually been committed to play Margaret Thatcher, um...” he joked. “And Meryl was, was Steven’s first choice for ‘Lincoln.’ And I’d like to see that version. And Steven didn’t have to persuade me to play Lincoln, but I had to persuade him that, perhaps, if I was going to do it, that Lincoln shouldn’t be a musical.”
