Let me tell you, as a fan of her work it's about bloody time! I remember the first movie I saw her in was A Time to Kill and then in the X Files. She brought life and depth to her roles that was so...real. I know that's cliche but I watch so many actors on screen and I just don't believe them. She, however, captivates me.
I wish you nothing but success and good fortune Octavia. Now it's time to sit back and enjoy the ride.
You've made it. ^_^
Another well deserved win: Jean Dujardin. Love that name!
I must admit, I saw the Artist over the weekend and LOVED it! His performance was riveting to watch. It's also a huge plus that he beat George Clooney! Ha! Take that George.
Other Oscar Winners included:
Meryl Streep, Best Lead Actress, The Iron Lady.
Christopher Plummer, Best Supporting Actor, The Beginners.
He's 82 years old. He played a father of kids who came out of the closet late in life. Nothing more can be said. Absolutely brilliant!
Michel Hazanavicius, Best Director, The Artist.
Never heard of him until now. But job well done!
The Artist, Best Picture.
If you saw the Artist, you know that this victory is a trite and resounding: DUH!
