The 84th Annual Academy Awards just wrapped up, and 'The Artist' dominated, 'Hugo' scooped up a handful of awards, and Christopher Plummer became the oldest actor to ever win an Oscar.
Octavia Spencer gave one of the most emotional speeches of the night, with her voice breaking into tears during her acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 'The Help.' I don't know about you, but I couldn't help but get choked up with her. Then again, I cried during the preview for 'Moneyball.' Anyway, this is definitely Octavia's moment.
Meryl Streep also took the stage to accept the award for Best Actress for her role as Margaret Thatcher in 'The Iron Lady.' And as always, Meryl took the show from stuffy to sweet. "Oh come on!" she said, taking the stage.
'The Artist' took home the biggest award of the night—Best Picture. And when he won Best Supporting Actor, 82 year-old Plummer took the stage and said to his Oscar: “You’re only two years older than me darling, where have you been all my life?"
