Oscars 2012: 'Rango' Wins Best Animated Film as 'Hugo' Grabs Its Fifth Golden Statuette


Additionally, 'Undefeated' grabs the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature as 'Hugo' collects the prize for Best Visual Effects at the ongoing Academy Awards 2012.

After Cirque du Soleil delivered a spectacular "Iris" theme performance, more golden statuettes were handed over to other acclaimed movies at the 2012 Academy Awards. "Rango" successfully picked up the Best Animated Feature Film gong from presenter Chris Rock, while "Undefeated" received the Best Documentary Feature award from Robert Downey Jr..

"Hugo", on the other hand, continued to dominate the awards show as it grabbed its fifth Oscar. After winning Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing, as well as Best Cinematography and Art Direction awards, the Martin Scorsese-directed adventure movie nabbed the Best Visual Effects kudo.

Emma Stone and Ben Stiller handed out the Best Visual Effects award for Rob Legato and co. "Hugo" has knocked down such rivals as "Transformers: Dark of the Moon", "Real Steel", "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II".
