The 84th Annual Academy Awards were held in the heart of Hollywood last night, with The Artist taking home the top prize for Best Picture, while that film's Michel Hazanavicius won for Best Directing, and Jean Dujardin won for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Meryl Streep surprised in the Best Actress category, wining over favorite pick Viola Davis, who seemed to be a lock heading into the ceremony. You can read our full list of Oscar winners.
