Oscars 2012: Watch the Academy Awards nominations live



Bright and early Tuesday (Jan. 24) morning, nominations for the 84th annual Academy Awards -- aka The Oscars -- will be announced by "Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence. The ceremony airs live on ABC Sunday, Feb. 26 hosted by Billy Crystal, who is back in the saddle after a series of failed hosting experiments (need we invoke James Franco's name?) and originally-scheduled host Eddie Murphy's resignation.

We'll be carrying a live feed (above) of the nomination announcement so you can get the scoops on the noms and the snubs without delay. Save or bookmark this page, then come back at Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. ET/5:30 a.m. PT to find out who will be competing in this year's Oscar race.

In the meantime, here's a look at some worthy candidates who probably won't make the nominations list. But, it ain't over till it's over -- so stay tuned.
