Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo” leading 2012 Oscar Nominees

The official list of nominees for the 84th Academy Awards set to compete for the prestigious Oscars this 26 February 2012, was announced earlier today in U.S. at a special pre-launch ceremony

Leading the nominations is Oscar-winner, Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo”, which is contending for best picture along with 10 other nominations.

Hot in pursuit, is the silent French romance film, “The Artist”, with 10 nominations. With films like the family drama “The Descendants”, the 9/11 anecdote; “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close”, “The Help”; a deep Southern drama, the fictional romance; “Midnight in Paris”, the sports story “Moneyball”, the family narrative; “The Tree of Life” and the “War Horse”; an epic tale of World War 1, it seems that “Hugo” might have quite a competition.
