Today brings us round two, still full of technical prizes, but with some standout categories like Best Original Score and Best Original Song, as well as a few hotly contested spots, where it's basically Academy favorites Hugo and The Artist duking it out to see who's prettier

For Your Consideration: As A True Love Letter To Cinema, Hugo Should Be King
While James Cameron may be the most prominent name when it comes to 3D filmmaking today, with Hugo it was Martin Scorsese who truly explored the potential of the new technology, but more importantly used it to make a statement about the art. By filming The Artist in the classic non-widescreen ratio and without color, Hazanavicius made homage to what things used to be like and itís a nice gimmick, but, conversely, Scorsese actually used 3D...

Scorsese's Hugo Hits DVD February 28th
Martin Scorsese's fantastical Hugo may still not have made back its budget yet ($170 million according to IMDb; it's grossed $75.6 million worldwide so far), but it's definitely earned some fans in Hollywood. It's landed 11 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director alongside unsurprising nods in categories like Visual Effects and Costume Design. Unfortunately, if you were hoping to watch it before the Academy Awards air, you'll have to try to find a theater still playing it, because Hugo won't arrive on Blu-ray and DVD until February 28th.

Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin Confirmed For Gavin Hood's Ender's Game
Production on Enderís Game begins early next year in New Orleans. Do you think Fordís the right choice to play Graff alongside Butterfield? Or, after Cowboys & Aliens, are you wondering if Ford should give the sci-fi genre a rest for the time being? Graff sounds like the kind of gruff, superior character Fordís capable of playing in his sleep.

Drive, The Artist And Hugo Lead Critics Choice Award Nominees
The BFCAs cover all the categories done by the Oscars-- yes, including Best Sound-- and then add a few of their own to the end, so instead of going through each category individually it seems easier to simply look for surprises. They nominated six people in each acting category-- all the better to predict the Oscars with, my dear

Martin Scorsese's Hugo Named Best Film By National Board Of Review
The National Board of Review is the next awards giving body to step into the breach, and they've done so with a big surprise, naming Martin Scorsese's Hugo the Best Film of 2011. The NBR, traditionally the first group to announce their awards for the year, comes on the heels of New York Film Critics Circle, which named The Artist Best Picture on Tuesday

Martin Scorsese Reportedly Working On A British Cinema Documentary
In a lengthy feature on Michael Henry Wilsonís new book Scorsese On Scorsese, The Independent UK reports that the Oscar-winning director is collaborating with Wilson on a ďnew doc about British cinema.Ē Itís one of those news nuggets that dropped in the middle of an introductory paragraph, and never mentioned again.

Hugo Producer Graham King On 3D And Johnny Depp's Attempted Cameo
Over the Thanksgiving holiday Martin Scorsese's Hugo opened on significantly fewer screens than the other big releases, but managed to do quite nicely for itself anyway-- $11.3 million from just over 1100 screens is nothing to scoff at, especially when you've made a children's film that's also a love letter to old movies

Weekend Box Office: Vampires Wolf Down Thanksgiving Leftovers
There was a lot for audiences to be thankful for this weekend, but there were only two movies that had anything to celebrate Breaking Dawn kept its sparkly fangs sunk into the number one spot for a seond weekend, pulling down an additional 42 million for a grand total of $221 million in US sales to date. That's about $10 million less than second entry New Moon and $15 million third in the series, Eclipse.

Scorsese's Hugo Jumps 40% In Thanksgiving Day Box Office
Of course, $14 million is still a fraction of what Hugo cost, and the movie will need to play strong throughout the holidays to even begin making its money back. But as a labor of love for Scorsese, and the most brilliantly rendered 3D seen since Avatar, Hugo is winning some ecstatic critical reviews and the kind of overall affection that tends to keep films buoyed for a long time

This week on Operation Kino we're getting right down to business: there are a ton of movies coming to theaters this weekend, and in particular two kid-friendly movies that are both worth your time (actually there are 3, but we didn't review Arthur Christmas this time). Absent David, who was lost in the throes of filmmaker at the time, the rest of the crew reviews The Muppets and Hugo

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Hugo Ticket
With one of cinema's great living masters, Martin Scorsese, using the 3D format for the first time, Hugo promises to be another leap forward for the format-- it's no coincidence that James Cameron has been publicly championing it. But is the 3D in Hugo enough to just please the 3D geeks, or actually be worth your extra ticket dollars? Find out below in our latest installment of To 3D or Not To 3D

Hugo Star Asa Butterfield Reveals The Scorsese Movies He's Still Not Allowed To Watch
With Hugo behind him and a potential starring role in Ender's Game ahead of him (though he's quick to say nothing is official), Butterfield is now figuring out how to navigate what seems like a quickly arriving stardom. I talked to him over the weekend about what he learned from Martin Scorsese, how Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley taught him to stay in character between takes

This Rotten Week: Predicting The Muppets, Hugo And Arthur Christmas Reviews
Have you heard the buzz? People at work talking about it? Maybe caught a snippet of the story on the news? We had another exact prediction last week! The phones wonít stop ringing around here.

Exclusive Clip From Martin Scorsese's Hugo: Meet Uncle Georges
If you know your film history, you may get a hint at how the movie ties into one of the great early filmmakers near the end of it. Otherwise you can enjoy the magical, slightly surreal sight of what happens when Chloe Moretz's Isabelle digs up her Uncle Georges' (Ben Kingsley) case full of old drawings. As you can tell at the end, he's not at all happy about her snooping

Martin Scorsese's Fantasy World Expands In Second Hugo Trailer
The real draw of Hugo, beyond the eye-popping production values or John Loganís immersive script, will be Scorseseís first foray into 3D storytelling. From everything we are hearing, itís some of the best 3D ever attempted. Which, given Scorseseís reputation as a visual genius, should surprise no one.

Martin Scorsese's Hugo Poster Has Time On Its Side
Of course, itís Scorseseís 3D images that really are going to help sell Hugo. Our own Katey Rich called them ďprobably the most gorgeous live-action 3D film ever made.Ē Statements do not come more bold than that, and weíre all dying to see for ourselves what Scorsese was able to accomplish in Hugo.

Scorsese's Hugo, Even Unfinished, May Be The Best Live-Action 3D Film Ever
The first thing to know about Martin Scorsese's Hugo, which screened in unfinished form as part of the New York Film Festival tonight, is that it must be seen in 3D. This surprised me as much as anyone else. Yes, Hugo is a new 3D film from a filmmaker who's not just great, but an expert on film history and the medium itself-- it was clear that Scorsese wasn't going to half-ass this

Scorsese Himself Narrates New Trailer For Hugo, Which Screens In New York Tonight
Because Hugo has been left out of a lot of the early Oscar speculation and seems to be dismissed by some as "just as kids movie," it goes into tonight's NYFF screening with refreshingly low expectations, always a good thing for a movie that's being shown before it's even finished

Scorsese's Hugo Cabret Trailer Does Upbeat Family Fantasy
The movie is based on the historical fiction novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret, first published in 2007. It tells the story of an orphan who lives in inside the walls of a Paris train station. There he searches for the answer to a mystery left to him by his father. Apparently there is also some sort of robot. America likes robots.

First Poster For Martin Scorsese's Hugo Discovered
Following a screening I attended earlier this evening at the Arclight Hollywood in Los Angeles, I spotted the one sheet hanging on the wall. More of a teaser than anything, the design simply features a key with a heart on the end as well an an engraved "H" and a tagline that reads "Unlock the Secret." Check out the poster below. Hugo hits theaters on November 23.
