Pro: Set in 1930's Paris, Martin Scorsese's first foray into 3D is based on a popular young adult novel that ties the history of cinema into a boy's investigation into a mystery about his late father.
Con: Never say never for Scorsese...unless it isn't a thriller. A clear long shot, "Hugo" would have to be a genre-breaking surprise to find itself in the nominee circle.
