Oscars 2012: Winners, Highlights and Best Dressed

The movie awards season reached its grand finale last night, with the 84th Academy Awards, or as we know them, the Oscars. As an evening traditionally filled with huge stars, long speeches and few surprises, it didn't disappoint.

The big winner was silent film The Artist, which took home Best Picture, Actor and Director. Predictably, Meryl Streep won Best Actress for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, meaning she joins an elite group of actors to have won three Oscars. The other success story of the evening was Martin Scorsese's Hugo, which claimed 5 awards, mainly for its sound and visuals.

With few surprises, there is little point reeling off all the details about each winner. We've done it all before after the Golden Globes here, and the Baftas here. Instead simply enjoy having a look at some beautiful people and check out the full list of winners below:
