Oscars 2013: Nominees' reactions

<div class="meta "><span class="caption-text ">Hugh Jackman earned a 2013 Oscar nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his role in &#39;Les Miserables,&#39; which scored a total of eight nods. The film is also nominated for Best Picture.  &#39;I hadn&#39;t planned to listen live to the announcements, but when I got into the car this morning to go to work, the driver had the nominations streaming as they were being broadcast,&#39; Jackman said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, January 10. &#39;To be honest, it&#39;s very exciting but all a bit surreal, and it hasn&#39;t fully sunk in yet. This is a brilliant awards year that has been defined by an eclectic list of stories that have been told by incredibly talented and courageous filmmakers, and it&#39;s an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence as the other nominees in the Best Actor category. Having hosted the show, I have seen so many different sides of the Oscars, but to be an actual nominee is something I never would have dreamed possible.&#39;  This marks the 44-year-old actor&#39;s first nomination. He hosted the Academy Awards in 2009 and did a musical number with &#39;Les Miserables&#39; co-star and Oscar-nominee Anne Hathaway.  &#40;Pictured: Hugh Jackman talked to OTRC.com about her upcoming film &#39;Les Miserables&#39; on Dec. 3, 2012.&#41;  (OTRC)</span></div>
