The Broadcast Film Critics Assn. (BFCA), made up of more than 250 TV, radio, and online journalists, announced its nominees for the 18th Annual Critics' Choice Awards on Tuesday, and "Lincoln" tops the list with 13 bids. That breaks the previous record set by "Black Swan," which reaped 12 nominations in 2010; it won just one of those -- Best Actress for eventual Oscar champ Natalie Portman. (See full list of nominations here and read report on shocking snubs here.)

"Lincoln" earned expected bids for Picture, Director (Steven Spielberg), Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Supporting Actor (Tommy Lee Jones), Supporting Actress (Sally Field), and Adapted Screenplay (Tony Kushner), in addition to Acting Ensemble and another six nominations below the line.

Following close behind is "Les Miserables," which has 11 nominations. Tom Hooper's film version of the 1987 Tony-winning musical has been mostly shut out of the critics' prizes thus far, but earned nominations including Picture, Director, Actor (Hugh Jackman), Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway), and Acting Ensemble.

"Silver Linings Playbook" earned seven nominations for the main awards -- Picture, Actor (Bradley Cooper), Actress (Jennifer Lawrence), Supporting Actor (Robert De Niro), Adapted Screenplay and Director for David O. Russell, and Acting Ensemble -- and another three in the Comedy categories -- Best Comedy Film, Actor in a Comedy (Cooper), and Actress in a Comedy (Lawrence).

The Critics' Choice Awards have included an award for Best Comedy since 2005, but the comedy acting races are new additions this year, as are those for Actor and Actress in an Action Movie, for which "The Dark Knight Rises," "Looper," and "Skyfall" received multiple bids.

"Zero Dark Thirty," which has already won mutliple critics' prizes for Best Picture, has five nominations: Picture, Director (Kathryn Bigelow), Actress (Jessica Chastain), Original Screenplay (Mark Boal), and Editing.

LA Film Critics winner "Amour" failed to make the Critics' Choice top ten for Best Picture, but it earned a pair of bids for Actress (Emmanuelle Riva) and Foreign Film.

Surprising contenders singled out by the BFCA include "Skyfall" supporting contenders Javier Bardem and Judi Dench, recent National Board of Review winner Ann Dowd ("Compliance") for Supporting Actress, and "Perks of Being a Wallflower" for Adapted Screenplay.

Winners will be announced at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica in a ceremony broadcast live on the CW on Jan. 10, the same day Oscar nominations are announced.
