Oscars 2012 Winners List — A Portrait of “The Artist” In Triumph

Oscar-winner Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo in "The Artist"

Believe it or not, the 84th Annual Academy Awards wasn’t all about whether J. Lo had a nip slip and just how much leg Angelina Jolie was going to show. They actually did hand out some Oscars.

The Artist took home the big prize, winning Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor, while Hugo managed to wrack up an impressive slew of technical awards. The biggest upset, however, was probably Viola Davis of The Help losing out in Best Actress to Meryl Streep for the little-seen The Iron Lady. Davis’ co-star, Octavia Spencer, did win Best Supporting Actress, however, and delivered probably the evening’s most impassioned acceptance speech.
