The Oscars is one of the biggest nights in film. It hosts the biggest actors and actresses as well as making way for and introducing the next big names.

The Oscars host one of the most famous red carpets, with slews of reporters flocking to report on the fashions. Many folks have gained major publicity not for winning an award but for what they were wearing on the red carpet.

Aside from fashions, the trophies awarded to the winning actors and actresses are equally notable too. They’re one of the most valuable. In an effort to keep them strictly with the star who was awarded it, a winner can only sell the award after offering it to the Academy for $1 first under the winners agreement.

Last night, a whole new pack of valuable awards were given out.  Hugo and The Artist were on top of the Oscars last night as they took home five awards each. The Artist took home awards including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor. Hugo took home Best Art Direction and Best Visual Effects, among others. 

The Iron Lady star Meryl Streep took home Best Actress while Octavia Spencer of The Help took home Best Supporting Actress and Christopher Plummer of Beginners took home Best Supporting Actor. Rango took home Best Animated Feature.
