Oscars Recap: ‘The Artist’ and ‘Hugo’ Take Home 5 Each, But The Silent Film Wins Best Picture

27 February 2012 9:50 AM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

The silent film spoke the loudest in last night’s 2012 Academy Awards as The Artist won Best Picture. Jean Dujardin and Michael Hazanavicius also scored big wins for The Artist for Best Actor and Director. Hopefully its total of five wins will bring some much needed attention at the box office. Also bringing home five Oscar wins, all in technical categories was Hugo. It won for Best Art Design, Cinematography, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and perhaps a bit of a surprise, in Visual Effects. Like The Artist, Hugo should see yet another boost from the Oscar wins although a 14-week run helped by 3D ticket sales has already brought in almost $70 million for Martin Scorsese and company, whereas The Artist has bought in just over $31 million in the same 14-week time span. Before exalting in French, Dujardin graciously addressed his peers in the room, “I love your country.” We’ll »

question of the day: What do you think of last night’s Oscar ceremony, and what do you think of the winners?

27 February 2012 4:16 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

The awards have been handed out (I’ve updated my predictions page to indicate the winners). The parties in Los Angeles are probably still going on as I write this, but the awards year celebrating the movies of 2011 is now over. The Artist won big -- Best Picture, Best Actor for Jean Dujardin, Best Director for Michel Hazanavicius, Original Score for Ludovic Bource, and Costume Design for Mark Bridges -- which makes me very happy. Hugo tied it with its own five awards -- Cinematography for Robert Richardson; Visual Effects to Rob Legato, Joss Williams, Ben Grossmann, and Alex Henning; Art Direction to Dante Ferretti and Francesca Lo Schiavo; Sound Editing to Philip Stockton and Eugene Gearty; and Sound Mixing to Tom Fleischman and John Midgley -- which makes me less happy, because I don’t think it’s a great film, but at least these are technical awards, as »

The Artist Triumphs At The Oscars

27 February 2012 12:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The Artist became the first silent movie to win a Best Film Oscar at the Academy Awards in 84 years on Sunday.

The black and white film completed a weekend trio of triumphs after also winning gold at the Cesar Awards in Paris on Friday and the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, California on Saturday.

The Artist filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius was also triple weekend winner after claiming the Best Director honour at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday, and the film also took home trophies for Costume Design and Score, while Jean Dujardin became the first Frenchman to pick up the coveted Best Actor award for his portrayal as silent film star George Valentin.

Meanwhile, Martin Scorsese's first 3D film Hugo picked up five of its 11 nominations in categories including Best Cinematography, Best Editing and Best Sound Mixing.

Other big winners at the 84th Academy Awards included Meryl Streep (Best Actress), Octavia Spencer (Best Supporting Actress), Woody Allen (Best Original Screenplay), Alexander Payne (Best Adapted Screenplay), Christopher Plummer, who, at 82, became the oldest actor ever to win an Academy Award, for his supporting role in Beginners, and A Separation, which became the first movie from Iran to win a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

Billy Crystal returned to host the ceremony for the ninth time and kicked off the show with one of his famous movie montages, playing The Artist's leading man George Valentin in a silent torture scene and George Clooney's comatose partner in The Descendants.

The odd couple shared a kiss as the movie hunk and Oscar nominee woke the sleeping comic and told him he had to host the ceremony, joking, "The Academy has got the youngest, hippest writers in town."

Crystal also placed himself in scenes from The Help, Bridesmaids, The Adventures of Tin Tin, Moneyball and Midnight in Paris, where he doubled up as Sammy Davis Jr. opposite Justin Bieber.

There was also a cameo for Tom Cruise in a brief Mission: Impossible skit.

In his opening monologue, Crystal joked, "The movies have always been there for us... so tonight, enjoy yourself because nothing can take the sting out of the world's economic problems like watching millionaires present each other with golden statues."

The full list of 2012 Oscar winners is:

Academy Awards 2012: The Complete Winners

26 February 2012 11:41 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

So, that’s it folks… another, another awards season, and another thoroughly predictable Academy Awards ceremony. At least this year most of the major awards went to a well-deserving film, namely The Artist. Other notable wins include Scorcesse’s Hugo cleaning up the visual gongs, and the Harry Potter coming away with absolutely flip all, despite years of solid blockbuster cinema. Despite all this, the biggest news seems to be Sacha Baron Cohen’s appearance as The Dictator, and pulling a stunt that had him marched off the red carpet quicker than you can say ‘The Academy hasn’t got a sense of humour’. Check out details of the jape here.

Below is the complete list of winners and nominations.

Best Film

Winner – The Artist

War Horse

The Tree of Life

Moneyball

The Descendants

Oscars 2012 Results: The Artist Triumphs

26 February 2012 11:36 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Very few surprises at last night’s Academy Awards ceremony where The Artist clean sweeped the major awards, taking Best Picture, Best Director for Michael Hazanavicius and Best Actor for Jean Dujardin.

The black and white silent film masterpiece also took Best Original Score and Best Costume to win five awards in total.

Martin Scorsese’s love letter to cinema Hugo also racked up five wins, winning the technical categories including Best Cinematography for Robert Richardson.

As we suspected she might the moment the film was announced 18 months ago, Meryl Streep won her third Oscar for her portrayal of former British prime minister Maggie Thatcher in The Iron Lady. Completely dominant at the Oscars, this was Streep’s 17th nomination but her first win in almost twenty years.

In the supporting categories, Christopher Plummer took Best Supporting Actor becoming the oldest winner of an Oscar at 82. The Help’s Octavia Spencer won Best Supporting Actress. »

The Oscars 2012: full list of winners, and thoughts

26 February 2012 10:06 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's the full list of winners for the 2012 Academy Awards. The Artist and Hugo lead the winners' list...

And so it came to pass that the 2012 Oscars went pretty much entirely with the predictions beforehand. Perhaps the most easy-to-guess bunch of winners in years, at least based on the nominations list, it’s hard to find a single category that didn’t go with expectation this year, as The Artist swept up many of the main prizes.

Amongst the highlights? You’d have to have a heart of stone not to applaud the decision to bestow an Oscar on The Muppets’ song, Man Or Muppet. Likewise, Rango taking home the Best Animated Feature prize was a reward for Hollywood’s richest and best animated movie of 2011.

The snub of the night? For us, that was the special effects prize going to Hugo, over Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2. It remains odd, »
