'The Artist' & 'Hugo' Top Oscars With Five Wins Each (Full List Of Academy Award Winners)

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).

Both films finishe...

Inside Look At The 84th Academy Awards Nomination Announcements (Video)

Live From The Academy Award Nominations
Like last year, the Oscar Nominations announcement morning always proves to be an early morning. I was up at 2:15 AM to conquer the pinnacle of the awards show season, the Academy Awards. I was interested to see how the Academy would vote this year with a new voting system for Best Picture, no clear frontrunner in the race, and a plethora of names being bandied about in the acting categories. The Academy did not disappoint this year with fresh faces, a nod to comedy, and a surprising nine Best Picture nominees instead of the predicted six or eight nominees.

Extremely Loud Incredibly Close
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: 9/11... All you have to do is say that date and most people will have a reaction, usually an emotional reaction. For me, that emotion is one of sadness for the senseless loss that so many people experienced.

And now, ten years after that infamous day, Stephen Daltry has directed a beautiful, moving film about loss.

'Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close' stars first time actor, Thomas Horn. He plays the young boy Oskar, trying to come to terms with his father's death on 9/11.

What's amazing about Thomas, is that just like the character Oskar, he ...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
I’m disappointed to report that I didn’t love Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes sequel “A Game of Shadows.” The first half hour is pretty boring, and although the action picks up pretty heavily toward the middle, Ritchie seems to care more about style than substance in the film. He continues to use Sherlock’s own bullet-time type slow-mo combined with crazy forced perspectives of bullets and shells being shot from guns, which admittedly is pretty darn exciting at times.

What the movie lacks though is the same great banter between Watson and Holmes that was present in the first film. Holmes...
