Here's a breakdown of this year's Oscar nominations by film, ranging from most to least.

"Hugo" (Paramount) - 11
"The Artist" (Weinstein Co.) - 10
"Moneyball" (Sony) - 6
"War Horse" (Disney) - 6
"The Descendants" (Fox Searchlight) - 5
"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (Sony) - 5
"The Help" (Disney) - 4
"Midnight in Paris" (Sony Pictures Classics) - 4
"Albert Nobbs" (Roadside Attractions) - 3
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" (Warner) - 3
"Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" (Focus Features) - 3
"Transformers: Dark of the Moon" (Paramount) - 3
"The Tree of Life" (Fox Searchlight) - 3
"Bridesmaids" (Universal) - 2
"Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" (Warner) - 2
"The Iron Lady" (Weinstein Co.) - 2
"My Week with Marilyn" (Weinstein Co.) - 2
"A Separation" (Sony Pictures Classics) - 2

DreamWorks' "The Help"(released through Disney) is this year's highest grossing nominee, with almost $170 million in domestic box office receipts and another $35 million plus in global box office. Sony Pictures Classics' "Midnight in Paris" is the highest-grossing indie: it brought in $56 million in the U.S. and a whopping $72 million worldwide.

Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy earned their seventh Best Picture nomination with "War Horse." Also for the seventh time, Woody Allen scored as writer and director for "Midnight in Paris," meaning he's passed Billy Wilder for that double-whammy honor. Meryl Streep earned her 17th nom for "The Iron Lady." John Williams was handed two noms, for "War Horse" and "The Adventures of Tintin," bringing his overall tally to 47. (Walt Disney holds the individual record, and Allen is third, with his 22nd and 23rd noms.)  But Disney's "Cars 2" is the first Pixar film not to be nominated for an Oscar since the "Best Animated Feature" category was established in 2001.
 

Also, this year marks a milestone for Martin Scorsese: "Hugo" received more nominations that any of his previous films.  It's also his first Best Picture nomination not to receive any acting nods.

Of the studios, Paramount had the most to crow about. Totaling up the 11 nominations for "Hugo," plus three noms for "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" and single noms for "Tintin" and "Rango," the studio collected 16 mentions, plus it distributed DreamWorks Animation’s two animated nominees, "Kung Fu Panda 2" and "Puss in Boots." That means it could claim a total of 18 nominations.

The Weinstein Co. was the champ among indie distributors with its 16 nominations, including 10 for "The Artist."

Meanwhile, Sony Pictures, thanks to movies like "Money­ball" and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," pulled in 13 noms, while its company Sony Pictures Classics picked up eight from such films as "Midnight in Paris" and "A Separation." In total, Sony Corp. can boast 21 noms.
