The Oscars 2012











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 least, 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 on Oscar on The Muppets’ song, Man Of 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, especially considering the later films, that the Academy has never rewarded the often-astonishing effects work in Potter. Our hope, at the least, is that the team behind it had a good night out.
Still, the night belonged to The Artist (and Hugo, on the technical side, which left Transformers: Dark Of The Moon statueless, scandalously. Ahem.) and here’s the full list of winners…
