Stepping out for an evening of pomp and circumstance, Daniel Day-Lewis headed over to the Dolby Theatre for the 2013 Academy Awards tonight (February 24).

Surrounded by his A-list peers, the “Lincoln” star did a little hobnobbing as he posed with his wife Rebecca Miller before heading inside to catch all the action.

As there’s a ton of great talent and fabulous films up for consideration, the competition is extra fierce at this year’s Oscars. The 55-year-old is up for Best Actor in a Leading Role along with Bradley cooper, Joaquin Phoenix, Denzel Washington, and Hugh Jackman.

“Lincoln” is up for a total of 12 awards, while “Life of Pi” has 11 chances at greatness. Additionally, “Silver Linings Playbook,” and “Les Misérables” have each received 8 nominations.
