The Oscars were just announced a few hours ago and there’s a few big surprises, it looks like the critics choices of “The Artist” and “Hugo” led the pack with 10 and 11 nominations respectively. One big surprise is that Ryan Gossling was not really recognized at all. He should get some sort of award for being in just about every genre of film in one year’s time.

Also, we can’t go into the list without congratulating “The Muppets” on their best song nomination for Man or Muppet.
