Just a Smattering of Horror Films Included in the 2013 Oscar NomineesPer usual, we didn’t see many horror films listed among this year’s nominees for an Academy Award, but here’s the lowdown on those that did make the cut.

Despite being nominated for BAFTA, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, and Washington DC Area Film Critics Association Awards for her performance in Hitchcock, Helen Mirren felt Oscar’s snub, and the only category in which the film was nominated is Makeup and Hairstyling. Snow White and the Huntsman fared a bit better with two nods for Costume Design and Visual Effects, and it was joined in the latter category by Prometheus.

In the animated film category, genre films again pop up with Frankenweenie and ParaNorman both in the running.

And that is it! If you’re curious, the bulk of the attention went to Lincoln, Argo, Life of Pi, Silver Linings Playbook, and Les Misérables..

Congratulations to all the nominees, and for more, including the full list, visit the official Academy Awards website.

Be sure to tune in to ABC on Sunday, February 24th, to see who takes home the gold.
