- Oscar Winners 2012
- Posted 27 months ago by staff · film · 4440 Views
The Artist, a silent film which we thought was absolutely fantastic, tied with the Martin Scorsese film Hugo at the 84th annual Academy Awards, with both taking home five awards. The overall victory was with The Artist, however, earning three of the top awards. The Artist won for Best Picture, Best Costume Design, Best Original Score, Best Actor, and Best Director, while Hugo took Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Visual Effects.
The rest of the evening was relatively uneventful, apart from Sacha Baron Cohen, one of Hugo's stars, being escorted from the red-carpet area after turning up in a fake beard and uniform, a fake jar of Kim Jong-il's ashes, and a pair of female body guards.
