Martin Scorsese 'cautious' over Hugo Oscar nominations

Although Martin Scorsese's 3D epic adventure film Hugo leads the charge at this year's Academy Awards with 11 nods, the director says he is "cautious" about getting too excited.

"I've been around long enough to know that one must not be too excited and expect too much," he said.

The film, which stars Sacha Baron Cohen, is nominated for the top honours including best film film and best director.
