Oscar might be the word of the day, but for some folks, their own names were what rung loudest and proudest during this morning's 2013 Academy Award nominations read-out. Sure, some of them were just as baffled by some of the snubs as the vociferous folks of the Twitterverse, but they couldn't complain too much because, hey, they just got a chance at the most elite prize in the biz.

So, in the day's spirit of actors and such talking about actors and such, we've gathered here the nominees' various reactions to this year's nods. You can probably read between the lines on a few of these.

Best Actresses

Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook": "I'm so honored and grateful for this nomination and to be in the company of such talented actresses. Having the fortunate opportunity to work with David O. Russell was an extraordinary gift and I am so thrilled for my fellow cast members Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver who are all nothing short of amazing. This was a labor of love that we all poured our hearts into and could not be more thankful to The Weinstein Company and Harvey Weinstein for their unyielding support of the film" (ET Online).

Columbia Pictures

The numbers are in and "The Amazing Spider-Man" is a hit.

(Note, I am writing this about a week before "The Amazing Spider-Man" opens but, call me crazy, I'm pretty sure I'm making a correct assumption here.)

Now that Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have thwipped their way into our hearts, what's next for Peter Parker, Gwen Stacy, New York City and that dude who stood in the shadows and said menacing things to Dr. Curt Connors?

Only time will tell, but, just in case the film's chief producers are reading (oh, who'm I kidding, they get a text every time I blow my nose) I've got five basic suggestions for the "Amazing Spider-Man" sequel. Get More »

Behold the Terror of ... 'Mrs. Doubtfire?!'

20th Century Fox

The premise is downright creepy: A recently divorced husband decides to watch over his children first hand by infiltrating his ex-wife's household in the disguise of a female nanny. Then he begins plotting his revenge from within their very home, all while pretending to be their loving, caring mentor. It's sick.

And as you may have recognized, it's also the plot of the classic robin Williams comedy "Mrs. Doubtfire" — which has now been re-imagined as the horror film it was always meant to be. Thanks, internet! Get More »

9 Movie Moms We Wish Were Ours

Easy A

We love our mothers. We wouldn't be here without them. As the years tick by, we become grateful for all the stuff that Mom bugged us about at the time – eating our vegetables, not sitting too close to the television, wearing warm clothes, paying attention in school, etc.

But sometimes, we wish our moms were a little cooler, and more like the ones we see in movies. Our moms grounded us for calling people names and wouldn't let us go to concerts. Movie moms fought killer robots, let their sons tour with rock bands... Our moms freaked out if we got home late, but movie moms are just glad you survived your fight with an evil wizard or supervillain. Get More »

Martin Sheen will play Uncle Ben "Dies Early in the Film" Parker in director Marc Webber’s "Spider-Man" reboot, confirms The Hollywood Reporter.

This is great news for Martin Sheen, whose son Charlie has been famously misbehaving and shirking his sitcom for the past couple weeks. Now Martin can put his son’s misbehavior behind him and take the next year or so to rehearse lines like "I won’t be here forever, Peter" and "Watch out, he’s got a gun." Get More »
