Hugo is a 2011 3D historical adventure drama film based on Brian Selznicks novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret about a boy who lives alone in the Gare Montparnasse railway station in Paris in the 1930s. It is directed and co-produced by Martin Scorsese and adapted for the screen by John Logan. It is a co-production between Graham Kings GK Films and Johnny Depps Infinitum Nihil. The film stars Asa Butterfield, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helen McCrory, Ray Winstone, Emily Mortimer, Jude Law, and Christopher Lee. Hugo is Scorseses first film shot in 3D, of which the filmmaker remarked: I found 3D to be really interesting, because the actors were more upfront emotionally. Their slightest move, their slightest intention is picked up much more precisely. The film was released in the United States on November 23, 2011. The film was received with critical acclaim, with many critics praising the visuals, acting, and direction. However, it was financially unsuccessful, only grossing $185 million at the box office, barely passing its budget. At the 84th Academy Awards, Hugo won five Oscars—for Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Sound Editing—and its eleven total nominations (including Best Picture) was the most for the evening. Hugo was also nominated for eight BAFTAs and won two, and was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards, earning Scorsese his third Golden Globe Award for Best Director. #biffes #Martinscorsese Source: Wikipedia
