'Surprise' that Les Mis director missed out on nomination

Tim Bevan, who produced Les Miserables, said he was "surprised" director Tom Hooper did not receive a nomination.

We're very proud of the film. We're somewhat surprised that Tom Hooper wasn't in the list for director

Steven Spielberg wasn't nominated for best director for Lincoln, which tops the list, so it just goes to show how wide open it is this year.

He said Jackman and Hathaway's nominations in the acting categories were "fantastic ... absolutely brilliant", adding: "The film wouldn't be what it is without them."
