The mostly silent feature “The Artist” was not so silent tonight at the Oscars.  Michel Hazanavicius’s black and white film took home statues for best picture, best director, best actor, as well as for best score and costume design.

Billy Crystal, hosting for the 9th time (wow!), brought a fairly uneventful Oscars presentation (aside from Sacha Cohen’s red carpet antics) into port with a steady hand.

The biggest loser of the night was obviously Ryan Seacrest’s tux (see Cohen comment above and any celebrity rag tomorrow).  A complete list of the 2012 Academy Award winners follows below:
