The 2012 OSCARs. The winners and losers

Mostly by the numbers for this year's OSCARs. Not too many supprises, if any. However we did see Christopher Plummer win for Best Supporting Actor, thus becoming the oldest ever winner (for a non Honorary Award) at 82 years and 75 days. I was going to say that X film won Y out of Z nominations but I can't be bothered to go through the list. So I give you the "OSCARs by the Numbers" to keep you ammused.
