Full list of nominations
Following an awards season so far notable for its predictability, the Academy today upset the apple cart by awarding Martin Scorsese's 3D film 11 nominations, leaving Michel Hazanavicius's much-tipped The Artist trailing with 10.
Meanwhile, Bennett Miller's Moneyball took six nominations, as did War Horse, with Alexander Payne's The Descendants - which had been tipped as The Artist's one to beat - taking just five. Tate Taylor's The Help went home with just four, including two in the supporting actress category.
The nine films that made the Academy's best picture list (which this year could come in between five and 10) are The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life and War Horse.
