Acclaimed "Hugo" director Martin Scorsese and actor Sacha Baron Cohen -- who voices the film's Station Inspector -- sat down with "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli to talk about the adventure movie's 11 Oscar nods.
Scorsese said he didn't expect 11 nominations, while Sacha exclaimed, "I did! In fact, I bet quite a lot of money."
The seven "X Factor" finalists paid tribute to Michael Jackson on Thursday evening's show before the voting results were announced. Here are three memorable moments from the show:
1. Rap sensation Astro was sent home.
2. Fourteen-year-old Drew, who was in the bottom two, sang "Listen to Your Heart" by Roxanne before she was eliminated.
3. Before walking off the stage, a sobbing Drew thanked her fans and said, "Jesus loves all you guys. That is truly what I was in this competition for anyway."
