Meryl Streep Oscar Wins, “The Artist” starring Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo. (Weinstein Company) “The Artist” was the big winner at the 84th annual Academy Awards, taking home Oscars for best picture, best director and star Jean Dujardin, who beat George Clooney in the battle of the charmers.
In the best actress race, considered by many to be the biggest tossup of the night, Meryl Streep beat Viola Davis for her portrayal of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady.”
“When they called … I had this feeling that I could hear half of America going ‘Oh, no. Why her, again?’ But, whatever,” said Streep after winning her third Oscar. Streep has been nominated 17 times — the most of any actor.
In an emotional speech, Streep thanked her husband for “everything I value most in my life” and makeup artist Roy Helland, who has been with her since the start of her career and won his first Oscar Sunday night for “The Iron Lady.”
Bringing tears to the eyes of many in the audience, Streep said what she values most is the friendship of the people sitting before her. “I look out here, and I see my life before my eyes — my old friends and my new friends.”
Dujardin also thanked the new friends he’s made in America since “The Artist.”
