(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.


___


The kilt is wool. Hot or cold I'm very comfortable. Brave co-director and co-writer Mark Andrews, on his plans to wear a kilt to the Oscars.


___


My youngest son is here with me because he's going to take me to these events so it looks like I have a date, you know what I mean... He's happy to join me on a lot of these things so it's not Sally plus none. Supporting actress nominee Sally Field on her date for the show.


___


I would like to change the fashion protocol. Since these shows are in January and February, I wish it was a contest for who had the best cashmere sweater and warm boots. I'm not getting any traction on that. Helen Hunt, nominated for supporting actress for The Sessions, on her red-carpet approach.


___


It feels like the first time all over again. Oscar winner Steven Spielberg on the 12 nominations for Lincoln.


___


It's great when it's mixed up and it's not just always the same people from every awards ceremony categorically over and over again. Best Actress nominee Naomi Watts on how the 2012 Oscars feature some surprise nominees.


___
