Oscar Nominations 2012 Announced

The Oscar nominations are out and “Hugo” and “The Artist” are leading the way with 11 and 10 each. Seven other films joined them for Best Picture including “War Horse,” “Moneyball,” “The Descendants,” “The Tree of Life,” “Midnight in Paris,” “The Help,” and somehow, inexplicably, “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” which may be the most reviled movie to ever be nominated for Best Picture
