The 84th annual Academy Awards ceremony was hosted by Billy Crystal and produced by Brian Grazer. The ceremony marked Crystal’s ninth time serving as host for the Academy Awards. The ceremony was originally scheduled to be hosted by Eddie Murphy. However, Murphy stepped down after Brett Ratner resigned as producer, following Ratner’s use of a gay slur when discussing rehearsals.

The Artist and Hugo each won five awards, with the former winning Best Picture and its star Jean Dujardin winning Best Actor. The Iron Lady won two awards, including Best Actress for Meryl Streep. The Artist became the first silent motion picture in 83 years to win Best Picture (after Wings, which won Best Picture in the 1st Academy Awards).
