Five things we learned this week – January 10th 2013

Gravity is ahead of the pack with 11 nominations and American Hustle and 12 Years A Slave are joint second with 10 nominations each. Perhaps the only real surprise is Idris Elba being left off the list for his portrayal of Nelson Mandela.

You can see the full list here and the award ceremony will take place on the 16th of February.
