The big movie news is the Oscar nominations, and by now, you probably already know the big winner was a movie about a big guy, "Lincoln."

Daniel Day Lewis, as Abraham Lincoln, received a Best Actor nomination, one of 12 the film earned, including Best Picture. Close behind, "Life of Pi," "Zero Dark Thirty," "Argo" and "Les Miserables."

Studios spend millions on campaigns to secure nominations, and then millions more trying to win Oscars. So, in political terms, the primaries are now over, and we are into the general election campaign.
