This morning’s announcement of the 84th Academy Award nominations, announced by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Tom Sherak and Academy member and Oscar-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence, put Martin Scorsese’s 3-D children’s fantasy Hugo, a vibrant film-history lesson and train-station adventure a top a nine-movie best-picture field with eleven nods.

Right behind it, with ten, was The Artist, a silent comedy-drama that recreates Old Hollywood, about a silent-film actor fretting at the dawn of talking movies.
