Martin Scorsese, "Hugo" Crew Talk About Their Oscar Nominations! 


I love "Hugo!" It was No. 2 on my Top 10 Best Movies of 2011 (check it out here). And the film led the 2012 Oscar nominations with 11 nods including Best Picture! Here's Martin Scorsese, Howard Shore (composer), and Graham King (Producer) talking about their nominations:

Statement from Martin Scorsese (Director/Producer):

“I am deeply honored to have been nominated by the Academy for my work on Hugo. Every picture is a challenge, and this one ­ where I was working with 3D, HD and Sacha Baron Cohen for the first time ­was no exception. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that you¹ve been recognized by the people in your industry. I congratulate my fellow nominees. It¹s an impressive list, and I¹m in excellent company.”

Statement from Howard Shore (Composer)

"It's always a thrill to work with Marty and Thelma and collaborating with them was a labor of love. It was inspiring to compose within the world of Hugo. It's a great honor to be nominated by the Academy."

Statements from Graham King (Producer):

“I am so incredibly proud of HUGO and I will be forever grateful to the Academy for acknowledging a film that defies all genres. Every single cast and crew member was not only committed, but challenged themselves and took their craft to a whole new level. I am thrilled that Marty has been commended for directing a film that was such new ground for him, yet based on a subject so dear to his heart.²”
