Abraham Lincoln is traditionally more associated with zinc and copper, but the Stephen Spielberg directed "Lincoln" looks like it may pull in some gold statues on Oscar night. The epic look at one of the nation's most beloved president's, starring Daniel Day Lewis as the man himself, received 12 Oscar nominations this morning.

You can still catch Lincoln at College Square Theatre. College Square also has Django, Argo and Les Miserables, along with a few more that have Oscar nominations.
