"Making 'Hugo' was an extraordinary experience for me. It gave me a chance to work in 3-D, which I've wanted to do since I was young; it allowed me to make a child's adventure, the type of picture that I loved when I was young; and it provided an occasion to pay tribute to one of the cinema's greatest pioneers, Georges Méliès. Given the support they've provided to the Film Foundation in our efforts to restore many films over the years, the recognition of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. for this particular picture has a very special meaning for me."
