Oscars 2012 Winner!

Oscars 2012 Winner!
Oscars 2012 Winner!
Biggest night event in the world! OSCAR 2012 aka 84th annual Academy Awards were just announced! "Hugo" won five awards and actually tied with "The Artist" — it's amazing that it scored so well even without director Martin Scorsese winning the big prize. And Marty got the most thank-you's in the evening. Meryl Streep has been nominated 17 times, but all the pundits were skewing against "The Iron Lady," which wasn't nominated for Best Picture or Screenplay. Ever since the two-time Oscar winner lost to Viola at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, America's greatest actress has been an underdog. And then she won, tossing everybody's Oscar pools in the air.
