Actors Christoph Waltz and Daniel Auteuil were among guests being interviewed on the Canal Plus program Le Grand Journal when what sounded like gunfire rang out.

Television footage showed Auteuil and Academy Award winner Waltz – a member of the Cannes festival jury – scrambling from the seaside stage with dozens of others as a voice said "there's someone shooting."

Originally posted 01/10/2013 08:15AM

This year's Oscars may not take place until Feb. 24, but the ceremony's host, Seth MacFarlane, already started earning his salary Thursday morning – by joining Emma Stone to announce the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills.

And the name that kept coming up: Lincoln, which reaped the lion's share number of nominations, 12, including those for Best Picture, Best Director Steven Spielberg, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Supporting Actress Sally Field.

Other highly recognized films were Life of Pi, with 11 nominations; Les Misérables, with nine; and Argo, with seven, though, surprisingly, not one for its director Ben Affleck.

"Christoph Waltz was injured while training with his horse in preparation for his role," the rep says in a statement. "Waltz is currently being treated for a dislocated pelvic bone and is looking forward to getting back in the saddle."

The film's production schedule has not changed, and Waltz is expected to fully recover.

Music and laugher kicked off the 2010 Academy Awards from Hollywood's Kodak Theatre. In a non-traditional first, the show actually opened with the 10 Best Actor and Actress nominees introduced alphabetically before escorts rose from the audience and guided them to their seats.

Then the fun began.

Neil Patrick Harris, who hosted the Tonys and Emmys last year, delivered the show's opening musical number, "No One Wants to Do It Alone," essentially setting the stage for hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin – who spent their opening dialogue poking fun at the top nominees who had just been seated.

"There's that damn Helen Mirren," said Martin – prompting Baldwin to say, "Steve, that's Dame Helen Mirren."

Predictions: Who Will Win at the Oscars

The votes are in, the pre-parties are in full swing, and all of Hollywood is hoping it won't rain: The 82nd Annual Academy Awards are just a day away! PEOPLE movies editor Samantha Miller takes a look at who will – and who should – take home Oscar gold Sunday night.

BEST PICTURE
Nominees: Avatar, The Blind Side, District 9, An Education, The Hurt Locker, Up, Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire, A Serious Man, Inglourious Basterds, Up in the Air

Ten movies were nominated this year, but the biggest race has narrowed to two – and it's a down-to-the-wire thriller. In one corner, there's Avatar, which blew away box office records and renewed audiences' excitement about going to the movies. Its wondrous special effects made us all feel like kids again, from the blockbuster battles to the smallest touches (loved the seeds that floated like tiny jellyfish). Meanwhile, the indie Iraq War tale The Hurt Locker is every bit as thrilling as its behemoth rival. The drama about a bomb-disposal squad delivers nail-biting tension, magnetic performances, and a provocative portrait of men under pressure that sticks with you like desert grit. Hurt Locker deservedly snapped up many of the pre-Oscar awards, so the odds are in its favor. For the biggest prize of all, though, with millions of fans watching, it's hard not to pull for the big, bold Avatar, for the way it reinvented how we see movies.

SHOULD WIN: Avatar

WILL WIN: The Hurt Locker
