The Oscars are an important event each year because it is meant to recognize the efforts of the best actors, directors and film technicians, and to showcase the best movies of the past year. This is an event that not only the fans await, but the actors and filmmakers as well.

The Artist

This year the most awards have been taken by The Artist, a silent movie. In total it took five awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director. Lead actor Jean Dujardin doesn’t really know English, but he didn’t need to know it for this role and he is the first Frenchman ever to win the Best Actor award.

Meryl Streep

She really struggled with her tears when she was presented the third Oscar of her career. She received it for her role in The Iron Lady as Margaret Thatcher. In her speech she thanked to her friends, both living and departed and she said that she imagined people saying, ‘not her again’ when they called her name.

Octavia Spencer

She also was one of the winners of the night winning the award for the best supporting actress. She couldn’t hold back tears when she got a standing ovation. After receiving the award, she hurriedly mentioned the names of all the people who supported her.

Christopher Plummer

He has won a statuette for his role in the movie The Beginners in which he plays a man who discovers his sexual orientation at an old age. He is known as the oldest actor ever to win an Oscar, at the age of 82. He joked that the award is just two years older than him!

Martin Scorsese

The movie Hugo seems to have been the best from a technical point of view. This is why it won the prize for Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects and Best Sound Editing.

Billy Crystal

He has been the host of the event and we have to admit that he did an amazing job holding the entire event together. He had some pretty good jokes and mentioned that there is nothing better than seeing millionaires getting little golden statues in the current economic situation.

If you are a movie buff, you can start with the ones that won prizes at the event because nothing could beat them among the movies of the last year.
