Of the nine movies currently up for Best Picture, Martin Scorsese‘s Hugo is my personal favorite. There’s so much I love about the film, from its eye-popping visuals and impeccable use of 3D to its inspiring tale and lovable performances. I’m not the only one that feels that way, of course — Hugo‘s been a popular pick on many critics’ lists and awards ballots. And now, as Academy voters mull over their final decisions, Paramount is eager to remind everyone of Hugo‘s many wonderful qualities.

The studio has released a six-minute featurette titled “The Magic of Hugo,” which goes behind the scenes to look at the hows and whys of making the picture. Scorsese, editor Thelma Schoonmaker, production designer Dante Ferretti, producer Graham King, visual effects supervisor Robert Legato, composer Howard Shore, and stars Ben Kingsley and Sacha Baron Cohen all appear to discuss their work on the project, and to talk about what made the film so special. Watch it after the jump.

The Bridesmaids ladies aren’t the only female ensemble cast enjoying a well-deserved career boost this awards season.

The man who brought us Borat, Ali G, and Brüno heads back into the realm of sociopolitical satire in the first trailer for The Dictator, which hit the Web today. Sacha Baron Cohen stars as Middle Eastern despot along the lines of Muammar Gaddafi, who gets sent to the United States in exile and spends his days riding camels down Fifth Avenue, ziplining across Manhattan, and sleeping with Megan Fox. John C. Reilly and Ben Kingsley also star. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

Orson Scott Card‘s Ender’s Game is such an exciting, surprising and influential sci-fi story that even if a film version was populated with unknowns, it would have a lot going for it. Director Gavin Hood is raising the bar though, populating his film with an absolutely stellar cast. The latest addition is Ben Kingsley playing Mazer Rackham, a pivotal character whose back story is kind of a major spoiler. I’ll explain with plenty of warning after the jump but for now Kingsley now joins a cast that includes his Hugo co-star Asa Butterfield as Ender, True Grit‘s Haliee Steinfeld as Petra and potentially, but not locked in, Harrison Ford as Colonel Hyrum Graff.

Steve Carell‘s been doing quite well for himself in his post-Office career. He’s already got several films lined up for the next couple of years, including Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher and the magician comedy Burt Wonderstone. Now the latest addition to his slate is Conviction, a heist film which he’ll produce and star in. Jonathan Herman‘s Black List script centers around a convicted bank robber who’s forced by the FBI to entrap his former protege.

Which sounds good, except that while Herman’s original screenplay had a tone similar to Heat, it’s now being reworked as an action comedy in the vein of 48 Hours or Ocean’s Eleven. That seems like a pretty major shift, though without having read the script I can’t say for certain whether it’s a terrible idea. The project has yet to confirm a writer to draft a new version of the script. [Deadline]

After the jump, Ben Kingsley, Julian Sands, and Jena Malone join a classic tale with a zeitgeisty twist, while Leslie Bibb, Ryan Kwanten, and Amy Smart board a flight with some paranormal issues.

Really, you could call any of the past few decades “The Age of Scorsese” — the timelessness of his best work is what makes him such a revered filmmaker, and he’s been working steadily since the ’70s. But every fashion photoshoot needs an inspiration, so for their latest issue, Harper’s Bazaar pulled together a bevy of stars to pay tribute to Martin Scorsese under that “Age of” title. The spread sees Chloe Moretz, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Michael PittSir Ben Kingsley and several other high-profile actors come together to recreate some of the director’s most iconic scenes. Flip through the photos after the jump.
