(AP) Reactions to nominations announced Thursday for the 85th annual Academy Awards:


I'm completely freaking out. First-time filmmaker Behn Zeitlin, nominated for directing and co-writing best picture contender Beasts of the Southern Wild.


I got an email from a lot of people saying 'Wow' and 'Yippee' and I had no idea what the hell they were talking about. Nobody bothered to tell me I'd gotten the nomination. They were just sending one word superlatives. Alan Arkin on learning about his supporting actor nomination via text messages.


I've already had two mimosas today. Anne Hathaway on her early-morning celebration for her supporting-actress nod in Les Miserables.


This is our first day of filming. It's not a bad way to start. Best actor nominee Hugh Jackman, who is in Atlanta shooting Prisoners.


Oh my god I feel like Meryl Streep!! Thank you x. Adele, nominated for original song for the Skyfall theme, on Twitter.


It was totally unforeseen. No European producer, no European director can seriously hope to get five nominations in the competition of the Oscar. It's totally exceptional. Amour producer Margaret Menegoz.


I've got pants on, so it must be real. Musician Mychael Danna wrapping his mind around his two Oscar nominations for original song and score for Life of Pi.
