The Oscars 2012

Late night yesterday, staying up to watch the Academy Awards! So here's my post reviewing all the winners (and losers) - as well as commenting on some of my favourite looks (despite it not really being my area of expertise!)

Best Picture: The Artist

Best Actor: Jean Dujardin, The Artist
I was really rooting for Gary Oldman in this category as I thought his performance as George Smiley in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was incredible - however it seems The Artist really did own Hollywood last night!
Best Actress: Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady
Though I will admit Streep's portrayal of Maggie Thatcher was excellent - The Girl With The Dragon tattoo blew it out of the water in my opinion and I was backing Rooney Mara all the way. As far as I'm concerned - she is Lisbeth Salander.

Supporting Actress: Octavia Spencer, The Help

Supporting Actor: Christopher Plummer, Beginners
In case you didn't realise from my review yesterday, I loved Warrior and was consequently hoping to see Nick Nolte scoop the award in this category, however kudos to Christopher.

Directing: Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist

Cinematography: Hugo

Art Direction: Hugo

Costume Design: The Artist

Makeup: The Iron Lady

Foreign Language Film: A Separation, Iran.

Film Editing: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Sound Editing: Hugo

Sound Mixing: Hugo

Documentary Feature: Undefeated

Animated Feature Film: Rango

Visual Effects: Hugo

Original Score: The Artist

Original Song: Man or Muppet from The Muppets

Adapted Screenplay: Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, The Descendants

Original Screenplay: Woody Allen, Midnight in Paris
Was so happy to see this finally recognised. This charming ode to my favourite city in the world was one of the best films last year.

Live Action Short Film: The Shore

Documentary (short subject): Saving Face

Animated Short Film: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore


Now on to the fashion. Rooney Mara and Jessica Chastain are fighting for the best dressed crown in my opinion! Both looking stunning as ever. And of course, no Oscar post would be complete without a sneaky little picture of the King of Hollywood himself: George Clooney! Oh and for all the Gary Oldman fans out there - keep scrolling down! Feel free to comment your thoughts and opinions - I'd love to hear what you have to say!






Unfortunately this marks the end of Award Season 2012 and what a year it has been...
