Be sure to vote for your Oscar picks with our Academy Award Quick Vote!

This year's Academy Award nominees were announced Tuesday morning, meaning the weeks leading up to February 26 will be filled with rumors and speculation. Michel Hazanavicius' "The Artist" and Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" lead the list with 10 and 11 nominations respectively, but there were plenty of movies with multiple nominations. "Moneyball" and "The Descendants" did well, allowing Brad Pitt and George Clooney to vie for Best Actor.

We put together a Quick Vote poll for the major categories so you can find your way around the nominations and get involved in the discussion right away. If you'd like to see a full list of categories and nominations -- Supporting Actors, Cinematography, Costume Design -- the official Oscars website has it here.

    I saw this movie with my dad and we thought it was great. The whole movie was funny in my opinion and I thought it was great how well he played off of other characters and he just nailed the role.

    I haven't seen any of these films but I like George better than the other actors
    on this list. Also I hear that 'The Descendants ' is a good movie so I am going with
    George as a hunch.

    The only movie I have seen is ' Moneyball ' which was excellent. As much as I like Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt is an outstanding, underrated actor. ' Troy ', ' Benjamin Buttons ' especially. ' Joe Black ' and ' Mr. & Mrs. Smith ' less so. I'll have to see the other four.

    I'm torn by this one because I believe Gary Oldman is a great and underrated actor. It's wonderful that he got a nod from the Academy. Didn't see Moneyball but I guess Brad was really good.

    Oldman was outstanding in ' Air Force One '. Also in the film where he is the DEA agent.

    That certainly includes me... I have not even heard of Jean Dujardin, or Demain Bichir. Gotta see if I can get these two films.... any further suggestions appreciated.

    I feel like George Clooney is far superior in acting ability as compared to Brad Pitt. And his performance in the Descendants was great.

    Are you kidding me!!! Seriously the only reason Brad Pitt is number one at this moment is because A. Women think he is cute (Not) B. The Men are jealous

    The artist wins it all and Brad and Angelina never win an Oscar. Maybe hollywood think they are overrated jusl Jay-Z and Beyonce.

    Angelina won an Oscar in 1999 in the best supporting actress for her role in Girl, Interrupted.

    Brad Pitt was great in "Moneyball", but it takes a special kind of performance from George Clooney to make you enjoy a film about so depressing a subject. I do want to admit that I have not yet seen "The Artist", and, in all fairness, I could change my mind, if Jean Dujardin is really outstanding. I think George will win.
