Which also means 3-D vs. Silent Movies. That alone makes this worth following.
Hugo is itself a big tribute to silent films (the work of Georges Melies) and technical innovations (the ones Melies did/3D).

Even bigger surprise is TinTin got snubbed despite winning some other awards. Another nail in the coffin for photo-real CG in movies?
The Academy's animation branch has always been clear that they don't think motion-capture is animation.
Sounds a bit like the attitude they had towards films like TRON when it first came out as CGI wasn't real special effects.
