Oscars 2012: Michel Hazanavicius Named Best Director for 'The Artist'

Michel Hazanavicius has won the Oscar for Best Director for his largely silent, black-and-white film "The Artist."

Hazanavicius, a 44-year-old Frenchman little known in the United States before "The Artist," beat a formidable lineup of acclaimed directors: Woody Allen ("Midnight in Paris"), Terrence Malick ("The Tree of Life"), Alexander Payne ("The Descendants") and Martin Scorsese ("Hugo").
