After an already eventful award season, the nominations for one of the biggest honors in film have been announced.
Leading the pack for the 2012 Oscars is Martin Scorsese‘s Hugo, which is nominated 11 times in categories like Best Director and the coveted Best Picture. The Artist came in with 10, and Moneyball and War Horse follow with 6 each.
