"The Artist" speaks up at the Oscars, winning five awards
"The Artist" became the first silent movie to win an Oscar as best picture since the awards were first presented 83 years ago at a ceremony in Los Angeles this past Sunday night. "The Artist" also won four other Oscars, including best actor for Jean Dujardin, the French star of the movie. Meryl Streep was named best actress for her portrayal of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady." It is the third Oscar for Streep, who has been nominated 17 times.
Canadian actor Christopher Plummer, 82, was named the best supporting actor, for "Beginners." It is Plummer's first Oscar and makes him the oldest Oscar winner in the acting categories. Other winners are listed here.
The night was also typically occupied by an assessment of the stars' fashion choices, a roster of memorable moments, be they good or bad, and the parties afterward.
