Oscar nominations came out and Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" lead the way with 11 nominations, including best picture and another direction nod for the Oscar-winning director.

KPCC's Steve Julian spoke to Nicole Sperling, who covers the nominations for the LATimes. No surprises in the list, she said.

"There was nothing, you know, incredibly shocking," Sperling said.

As a result of a rule change requiring films to receive five percent of first-place votes, only nine films are making a show for best picture: silent film "The Artist"; family drama "The Descendants"; Sept. 11 tale "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close"; Deep South drama "The Help"; romantic fantasy "Midnight in Paris"; sports tale "Moneyball"; family chronicle "The Tree of Life"; and World War I epic "War Horse."

The rule change didn't do that much for the list of nominees, Sperling said.

"It really didn't make things that exponentially different," she said. "I think it's too early to tell if it's working or not."
