Big Winners at The Oscars!

Words: GLAMOUR

February 27, 2012

Hollywood’s biggest stars turned out in their best designer garb, to celebrate some of the biggest movies of the year at last night’s Oscars ceremony. Host Bill Crystal had Tinseltown’s elite in stitches with his usual comedic banter, as we were reminded of just why we love movies so much.

 

The silent movie “The Artist” faired the best, cleaning up a total of 5 Oscar nods. The black and white film, which tells the tale of an old-Hollywood love story, was named Best Picture, while it’s star Jean Dujardin took the award for Best Actor. Accepting the Best Actor accolade, first-time nominee Jean, 39, who saw off stiff competition from Hollywood stalwarts Brad Pitt and George Clooney, gushed: “I love your country. So many of you here tonight have inspired me.”

 

Meryl Streep, who has been nominated an impressive 17 times, was named Best Actress for her portrayal of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady”. The 62-year-old third-time Oscar winner joked during her acceptance speech, saying “When they called my name I had this feeling I could hear half of America going, ‘come on, why her again’, but whatever.”


Veteran Christopher Plummer, 82, became the Academy’s oldest winner when he was named Best Supporting Actor for his role as a gay father in “Beginners”.
