Nominee reaction: Graham King

Best picture, 'Hugo'

With GK Films’ “Hugo” and “Rango” landing best pic and animated feature noms, producer Graham King said he was especially happy to see the man he considers the greatest director ever — “Hugo” helmer Martin Scorsese — to receive the recognition as well.

“It is just amazing to see ‘Hugo’ get all of this love and that ‘Rango’ got a nomination is a great surprise and a great reward as well,” King said.

“It is especially sweet that Marty at this point in his career can come along and do a (type of) film that he is not known for and get recognition for it. It’s nice to see.”
