Oscar 2012

2 interesting things I notice about this year's Oscar films:
- Retro:
+ "The Artist": a silent, B&W film about the end of the silent era of cinema in the 1920s with the emergence of talkies.
+ "Hugo": a film by Martin Scorsese about the 1st years of cinema, focusing on Georges Méliès's career.
+ "Midnight in Paris": a film by Woody Allen about an American man travelling to Paris and being transported to the 1920s.
- France:
+ "The Artist": a French film.
+ "Hugo": the story's set in Paris.
+ "Midnight in Paris": also set in Paris.
Anyway, this is the result of Oscar:
- Best supporting actress: Octavia Spencer in "The help".
- Best supporting actor: Christopher Plummer in "Beginners".
- Best adapted screenplay: "The descendants".
- Best original screenplay: "Midnight in Paris".
- Best actor: Jean Dujardin in "The artist".
- Best actress: Meryl Streep in "The iron lady".
- Best director: Michel Hazanavicius with "The artist".
- Best picture: "The artist". 
(as expected- I guessed that the award would be given to either "Hugo" or "The artist", and personally prefer "The artist", and was pretty sure the winner wouldn't be "The descendants", "Midnight in Paris" or "The tree of life"). 
Very happy that Meryl Streep, after so many times being nominated and getting nothing for years, finally receives an award she truly deserves, and that "The artist", the film I love, wins the most important awards.
