Why "Hugo" should win Best Picture

I've written that "The Artist" should not get the Oscar for Best Picture. I like that movie but Hugo is the better film. And of the nine nominees for Best Picture, it deserves the prize.

Hugo is innovative. The brilliant Martin Scorsese has directed a masterpiece. His vision of this film in 3-D has catapulted the 3-D medium to high art. And Hugo is no empty exercise in filmmaking. The movie has humor and heart. It's a loving valentine to the magic of movies. So Academy members, I urge you to vote for Hugo.
