The Artist wins Oscar for best picture | Film | guardian.co.uk
The Artist is the winner of this years Oscar for best picture, at the 84th Academy Award ceremony that has just concluded in Hollywood. The French silent film won five awards during the night, including best actor for star Jean Dujardin and best director for writer/director Michel Hazanavicius. The Artist Production year: 2011 Countries: France, Rest of the world Cert (UK): PG Runtime: 100 mins Directors: Michel Hazanavicius Cast: Berenice Bejo, James Cromwell, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman, Malcolm McDowell, Penelope Ann Miller More on this film The Artist came out on top in a field of nine best picture nominees, defeating the much-fancied George Clooney starrer The Descendants, Martin Scorseses early-cinema fantasy Hugo, and feelgood civil rights drama The Help. Its other gongs included the awards for costume design and music (original score).nHazanaviciuss film had been the front runner for the Oscars for months, winning best picture awards at the Golden Globes and the Bafta awards. With an Oscar campaign orchestrated by industry veteran Harvey Weinstein, The Artist looked irresistible. In the end it tied with Scorseses picture in terms of number of Oscars, with each film taking five.
Oscars 2012: how The Artist won the Academy Award for best picture | Film | guardian.co.uk
Ever since Michel Hazanavicius black and white silent movie caused a sensation at its world premiere in Cannes, The Artist has gone from quirky retro-wonder to bona fide contender to clear favourite. At the 84th Academy Awards on Sunday night it completed the transformation to victor, claiming a clutch of Oscars that included senior awards for best picture, director and lead actor for Jean Dujardin. The Artist Production year: 2011 Countries: France, Rest of the world Cert (UK): PG Runtime: 100 mins Directors: Michel Hazanavicius Cast: Berenice Bejo, James Cromwell, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman, Malcolm McDowell, Penelope Ann Miller More on this film The blue riband triumph in the best picture category was the result of a typically calculated campaign by Harvey Weinstein, the wily old warhorse on the comeback trail after wilderness years of corporate uncertainty, the loss of the Miramax name and the distraction of vanity projects.nAs he did last year with The Kings Speech, Weinsteins selections dominated the major awards on Sunday: he also distributed The Iron Lady starring Oscar winner Meryl Streep, My Week with Marilyn with nominee Michelle Williams and best documentary winner Undefeated.nWeinstein was invited to see The Artist before its prestigious world premiere slot in Cannes 2011 that the movies producers had lobbied so hard to secure. He hopped on a plane from New York to Paris and fell in love with the film, snapping up US distribution rights before what would become a rapturous reception on the Croisette. Freshly minted Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin won Cannes best actor award and when the industry retired for the lazy summer months, Weinstein hunkered down to formulate the campaign strategy, which surprise surprise boiled down to something like this: maximum exposure for the maximum possible time.nWinning awards is as much about being seen and "working it" as it is about being actually any good. So stars Dujardin and Berenice Bejo, writer-

A Separation has won the best foreign language film Oscar at the Academy Award ceremony currently taking place at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.
