The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences was good to the industry last night, bestowing honors on three of the industry's top talents.
Directors Hervé de Crécy, François Alaux and Ludovic Houplain capped off their celebrated run with the brand-happy Logorama by taking home the award for Best Animated Short. The trio was formerly known as H5, but after Logorama launched the directors parted ways. De Crécy and Alaux, pictured above, are now repped out of Little Minx as Herve & Francois, while Houplain retains the H5 name. Check out the Making of Logorama we featured a while back on H5's long road to making the film.
Park Pictures director Joachim Back and his producer Tivi Magnusson took home the Oscar for the best live action short film The New Tenants. Not bad for the first film produced out of Park.

And then there was Kathryn Bigelow. Repped out of RSA for spots, Bigelow made film history last night as the first woman to be awarded the Oscar for best director--and best feature, for The Hurt Locker. She was also featured in this year's Creativity 50.
