The winners of the 84th Academy Awards have been named and now the fans should see the films and stars that were chosen and nominated as the Best in the United States! They are all winners because being nominated is an honor.

With Billy Crystal as host for the ninth time, everyone knew they would be entertained at the Academy Award ceremony. Bob Hope has the honor of being the host the most times for his 17 appearances.

After all of the drama, surprises and happy acceptance speeches the Academy congratulated their winners and nominees. It was a beautiful awards celebration.   

The expected win went to Jean Dujardin, for his performance in "The Artist". He thanked the Academy, "If George Valentin could speak, he'd say, "Merci beaucoup, formidable!" 

The Artist was the star of the evening winning Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Costume Design, Best Music and Best Director.

Meryl Streep, nominated for the 17th time, winner of her third award for the Best Actress this evening for her role as Margret Thatcher in the Iron Lady. The audience continued clapping to give Meryl their recognition of her talents. Meryl said, "When they called my name I could feel half of America going, "Oh, no, why her again", but whatever!"

The Best Director, Michel Hazanavicius, for The Artist, said during his acceptance speech, "I am the happiest director in the world right now. Thank you for that." He also thanked Uggie, the dog who starred in his film.

One favorite that missed the awards was George Clooney as Best Actor and the Descendents for Best Picture. Although George Clooney did win the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture-Drama along with Descendants winner of the Best Motion Picture Drama. 

The Help was a favorite to win Best Picture and Viola Davis as Best Actress yet the film actually did score Octavia Spencer for Best Supporting Actress. This shows we can never tell until the Oscars are announced!
