An Oscar for Jones would be his second supporting-actor prize; he previously won for ‘‘The Fugitive.’’
‘‘Lincoln’’ composer John Williams — whose five Oscars include three for the music of three earlier Spielberg films, ‘‘Jaws,’’ ‘'E.T. the Extra-terrestrial’’ and ‘‘Schindler’s List’’ — earned his 43rd nomination for best score, extending his all-time record in the category.
The Oscars feature a best-picture field that ranges from five to 10 films depending on a complex formula of ballots from the 5,856 voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Winners for the 85th Oscars will be announced Feb. 24 at a ceremony aired live on ABC from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.
