Oscars 2012: Best Moments
Last night were the 84th Annual Academy Awards and there were some clear winners of the night. However, The Artist, Hugo, and The Iron Lady were the only films to win multiple awards. The big surprise out of those three is The Iron Lady which was tepidly received among critics and audiences alike, but thankfully Meryl Streep won her long overdue third Oscar. As with the rest of the winners, there were no surprises which was refreshing as the winners were all deserving of their statuettes. In order to not bore readers with more typical Oscar, here are some of the highlights of last night’s ceremony. Congrats to all the winners!
