Oscar 2012 Winners

Share |

Billy Crystal hosted the Oscar 2012 ceremony on ABC, which took place at the Hollywood & Highland Center, formerly the Kodak Theatre. The silent-era film The Artist won five awards, including the coveted Best Picture prize, at Sunday’s 84th Academy Awards. Check out the winners full list below and the most stunning Oscar 2012 dresses here.

Michel Hazanavicius won the Oscar for Directing and Jean Dujardin won the Actor in a Leading Role award for the black-and-white French film. He said the audience of stars including George Clooney, Michelle Williams, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and members of the Academy:

I am the happiest director in the world right now. Thank you for that.”

The Artist also won for Costume Design and Original Score.

The best-actress prize went to Meryl Streep for her portrayal of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady. Streep’s turn as an elderly Thatcher who is slipping into dementia was too good to be ignored. It was Streep’s third Academy Award out of 17 nominations, and even she reckoned that Oscar voters would think she’s been there, done that. Backstage she termed it Streep fatigue to reporters. Streep joked:

When they called my name, I could feel America saying, ‘Oh why her again?’ But whatever.”

Yet even the steely veteran could not hold back the emotion of an Oscar victory. When she thanked her husband and talked about her career she came close to breaking into tears, and backstage she said it made her feel like a kid again.

Octavia Spencer won for supporting actress for her role in The Help and Christopher Plummer won supporting actor for his part in Beginners. Veteran Plummer, a star of classic film The Sound of Music, won his first ever Oscar for his portrayal of an elderly gay man who comes out to his family in Beginners. He said, looking at his golden Oscar, which was celebrating its 84th awards ceremony:

You’re only two years older than me, darling. Where have you been all of my life.”

Hugo was the other big winner of the night. It picked up awards for Cinematography, Art Direction, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Visual Effects.

In other major wins, the foreign language film award went to Iranian divorce drama A Separation. Its director, Ashgar Farhadi said:

I proudly offer this award to the people of my country, the people who respect all cultures and civilizations and despise hostility and resentment.”

Asked backstage how he thought the Iranian government might respond, he said he really did not know:

I can’t predict what’s going to happen.”

Comedian Billy Crystal, who returned to emcee the show for the ninth time, had the crowd laughing loudly with an opening video in which he was edited into the year’s top movies.

He was kissed by George Clooney on the lips in a scene out of The Descendants and even ate a tainted pie from The Help. He opened with a monologue in which he jokeв “there’s nothing like watching a bunch of millionaires present each other with golden statues” and sang a comic song about the movies.

Other highlights included stars like Morgan Freeman, Tom Hanks, Adam Sandler and others in brief video vignettes telling audiences why they loved movies. The clips highlighted this year’s themes of reminding people what makes movies magical.
