Octavia Spencer and Christopher Plummer completed their awards-season sweep, winning for their supporting roles in The Help and Beginners, respectively. Spencer is the fifth black actress to win in the category, while Plummer, 82, became the oldest acting-winner ever, dethroning Jessica Tandy, who was 80 when she won for Driving Miss Daisy.
Nat Faxon, Alexander Payne and Jim Rash (The Descendants) and Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris) took home the adapted and original screenplay honors, respectively. Allen, an expected no-show, is the first person to win three awards in the category.
Other winners include The Muppets for original song ("Man or Muppet") and A Separation for foreign language film.
