2012 Academy Awards

The nominations for the 84th Annual Academy Awards are in. 'Hugo' led the bunch with an astounding 11 nominations, followed by 'The Artist' with 10 and 'Moneyball' and 'War Horse' with 6 a piece including Best Picture nominations.

As expected, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jean Dujardin, Meryl Streep and Viola Davis all landed nominations for their lead roles, but the list also included surprises Gary Oldman, Rooney Mara and scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy.

Some of the huge snubs included Leonardo DiCaprio, Michael Fassbender, Tilda Swinton and Mary J. Blige, who was considered a lock for Original Song.
