no surprises except Streep who was long, long overdue and is as always sensational in an ordinary film. I still haven't seen a 2011 film better than Midnight in Paris, but the Artist was good and obviously made some history
You know I love Streep and think she's the best actress of all time, but I was really pulling for Viola Davis to win for The Help.
shouldn't have been any argument if she'd been chosen.
Glad that Christopher Plummer finally got an Oscar.
