If anyone had told me 5 years ago after watching the insufferable OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies that Michel Hazanavicius would go on to win a best director Oscar I would have laughed myself silly. Never say never and with the Oscars anything is possible.

Think of it this way, Scorsese-fans. "Hugo: Winner of Five Academy Awards!"

Over the last few years, including Danny Boyle as well, I keep telling myself the same thing.
