Hugo Dominates; Tree of Life, Extremely Loud Shock 2012 Oscar Nominations

Give the Academy some credit: They made awards season fun for a little bit longer. At least my mind was blown this morning as AMPAS president Tom Sherak and Jennifer Lawrence announced The Tree of Life, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Demián Bichir and a few other shocks among the 2012 Oscar nominations.

We'll have more commentary and feedback on these throughout the day, but let it suffice to say Albert Brooks is not feeling so hot this morning.
