The Artist and Hugo
Tom Hanks, who ended last year's Academy Awards by announcing Best Picture winner The King's Speech, started things off at this year's Oscars by handing out the evening's first two awards, for Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction. Both awards went to Martin Scorsese's 3D family film Hugo, quickly setting the tone for a possible upset in the coveted Best Picture category at the end of the ceremony.

But that wasn't to be, as frontrunner The Artist took most of the night's major awards, including Best Picture, Actor (Jean Dujardin) and Director (Michel Hazanavicius).

Her stunning transformation helped Close land an Oscar nomination for Best Actress and she admits her convincing appearance in the film is modeled on an old picture she saw in a magazine article about the unusual eastern European culture.

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies

Dropping into theaters this week is the frosty Liam Neeson thriller “The Grey,” the high-rise standoff “Man on a Ledge,” the Glenn Close period piece “Albert Nobbs,” the Katherine Heigl action comedy “One for the Money,” the historical drama “In Darkness,” and the foreign drama “Declaration of War.”

2012 Golden Globes fashion
The Golden Globes are the first big awards show of the season, and the stars came out in colorful ensembles to attend one of Hollywood's most prestigious events leading up to the Academy Awards.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...
