Oscar Winners 2012




Two films were the clear winners at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, Hugo and The Artist both walking away with 5 wins each. Seeing The Artist take Best Picture and Best Actor in a Leading Role going to Jean Dujardin shocks me at the same time as I completely expected the movie to take at least Best Picture. If you haven’t seen The Artist I highly recommend you do, it is something out of the past.

  1. I would have preferred to see Hugo win the oscar for best feature, but the results are as expected… What did surprise me, was the oscar for best make up. I really think Harry Potter should have won that one
