There were so many incredible and memorable moments at the 2012 Oscars, including Octavia Spencer's acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress, Meryl Streep's surprising win for Best Actress and Angelina Jolie's sexy, leg-flashing pose!
Presenters like Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis, Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, and the cast of Bridesmaids all got laughs from the audience, as well as host Billy Crystal, who was the master of ceremonies for the ninth time.
But nothing was quite as special as silent, black-and-white film The Artist taking home, not only the award for Best Picture, but also two more titles! Jean Dujardin won for Best Actor over Brad Pitt and George Clooney and Michel Hazanavicius beat out Martin Scorsese for Best Director! What a night!
