This year Martin Scorsese is nominated for his brilliant work on Hugo. Hugo is nominated for 11 Oscars including one for direction. Scorsese is no stranger to the Academy Awards, he has been nominated for Best Director a total of 8 times in his career and he finally won the award in 2007 for The Departed. In my opinion, Scorsese is one of the true great living American directors. From Taxi Driver to Raging Bull and from Goodfellas to The Aviator Scorsese has consistently proven his brilliance with every shot of nearly every movie he has made.
Here are some of my favorites scenes from his body of work.
