Meryl Streep and The Artist Top 83rd Oscars

The actress won her third Oscar, while the silent film garnered a total of five awards. Plus, get the full list of Oscar winners!

Actress Meryl Streep won Best Actress at the 83rd Academy Awards for her role as former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher in the film The Iron Lady, FOXNews.com reports.  She beat out actresses Viola Davis (The Help), Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs), Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), and Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn) in the category. This is Meryl's third Oscar win after being nominated 17 times, 14 of which were for Best Actress.

She joins the ranks of stars like Jack Nicholson, Walter Brennan, and Ingrid Berman, who have also had three wins in the past. Actress Katharine Hepburn remains the only star with four wins. Meryl's nomination this year has also earned her the distinction of being the performer with the most Oscar nominations in history

Meanwhile French black-and-white film The Artist took home five awards, including distinctions for Best Picture and Best Director for Michel Hazanavicius. It is the first silent film to win Best Picture ever since World War I film Wings got the same award in the first ever Oscars in 1929, The Huffington Post reports.
