Beating rival cinematographers from "The Artist", "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)", "The Tree of Life" and "War Horse", Richardson won his third Oscars to date. He had previously won the golden statuettes for his works in 1991's "JFK" and 2004's "The Aviator".

"The Artist", in the meantime, bagged its first Oscar by winning the Best Costume Design award for Mark Bridges. "Hugo" defeated other strong contenders such as "W.E.", "Hugo", "Anonymous" and "Jane Eyre".

Other early winner at the night was "The Iron Lady" which claimed the kudo for Best Makeup. Mark Coulier and J. Roy Helland shared the victory after beating such rivals from "Albert Nobbs" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II".

More winners will soon be revealed at the ongoing Academy Awards, which is live televised by the ABC Television Network. Serving as the host for the gala is Billy Crystal, who opened the show by appearing in blackface as Sammy Davis Jr..
