The 2012 Oscar Awards have been full of surprises including a big win for Jean Dujardin as his turn as a silent movie actor in the silent film The Artist.
Since we began reporting on the Oscar’s on Sunday morning we’ve seen Jonah Hill in a less then slimming black suit and we watched as an assistant used a lint roller not one but two times on P. Diddy as he arrived on the Red Carpet and then won for his production of the documentary “Undeated.”
For moviegoers looking for a movie to see based on it’s shear visuals we suggest checking out Hugo which won for art direction and visual effects along with sound editing and sound mixing.
Woody Allen was even back on top of his form with a best original screenplay win for his movie Midnight in Paris.
