I get asked all the time what a proper boom technique is. Here is a good example. Yes, I know the guy doesn't have headphones on, but that's not uncommon in Europe.

Well, he deserves his pay!
And about the headphones, I guess once the recorder is set properly, with a good one (with limiter) you can't really go wrong when you know what you're doing.

Well, I would imagine in this situation there is a separate production sound mixer involved here, at least a 2 or 3 person sound crew.

And yeah, pretty much European booming style, without headphones and a production sound mixer somewhere in the back, riding the levels.
As a side note, we use manly shotgun mics for indoor.
It's a traditional thing, if you ever listen to an original German dialogue scene, you her much more room than in US films.
I never liked that sound, so I guess I'm one of the rare guys that uses a hyper for indoor dialogue over here.

Since Audio Ltd. is a UK based company, and I think Hugo was shot over there, I would place my money on Audio Ltd., but I don't know for sure.
