Nominee reaction: Thelma Schoonmaker

Film editing, 'Hugo'

For “Hugo” editor Thelma Schoonmaker, Martin Scorsese resurrecting the story of George Melies was similar to the preservation work Scorsese has done on pics by her late husband Michael Powell.

Schoonmaker recalled that her husband once wrote that because of Scorsese, ” ‘The blood started to flow in my veins again.’ It’s the same story with George Melies.”

Although she has three Oscar wins already, Schoonmaker said her nom this time around is even more of an honor because “the film is such a celebration of the things that taught us how to be filmmakers.”
