What's Next for the Academy Award Winners?

Posted by Sean O'connell on February 27, 2012

The 84th Annual Academy Awards have wrapped, officially concluding the 2011 movie year. (Yes, I’m aware that we’re already two full months into 2012, but the Academy moves slower than we’d prefer.) As expected, The Artist -- Michel Hazanavicius’ ode to Hollywood’s Golden Age -- took home the evening’s top honors, claiming best picture, director and actor for the effervescent Jean Dujardin. The remaining acting trophies were divided up between the legendary Meryl... More

Posted by Sean O'connell on February 27, 2012

Congratulations, The Artist! The black-and-white, predominantly silent ode to Hollywood’s Golden Age made good on a season-long promise by taking home the Oscar for Best Picture at last night’s Academy Awards. A tip of the hat goes to Best Supporting Actress nominee Berenice Bejo, Best Actor winner Jean Dujardin, Best Director winner Michel Hazanavicius … and, of course, to producer Harvey Weinstein, the consummate Oscar strategist.

The 2012 Oscars Stuff You Missed: Sacha Baron Cohen, Smart TV, Diet Coke, Wes Anderson's Commercials and More

Posted by Erik Davis on February 27, 2012

Not everyone has the time or patience to watch all 12 hours of Oscar programming. If you were one of those people who tuned in right as the ceremony was starting and skipped every commercial break to check in on the NBA All-Star game score, then you most likely missed some of Oscar's other best moments, most notably Sacha Baron Cohen's appearance as his Dictator character (which almost didn't happen until it randomly happened for reasons we're quite unsure of), as well... More

'Hugo' Dominates Early but 'The Artist' Claims Best Picture Oscar

Posted by Derrick Deane on February 27, 2012

The 84th annual Academy Awards were handed out tonight and while Hugo dominated much of the technical categories, The Artist laid claim to the major awards of best picture, directing and best actor (Jean Dujardin). Hugo started off the night with five wins and it seemed like the Martin Scorsese family film was well on its way to scoop up some major awards. But in the end, the momentum built up by Michael Hazanavicius' silent film was too much to overcome.   A... More
