The undeniably charming silent filmÂ The Artist swept the board at theÂ Academy AwardsÂ last year, and also won Best Picture and Best Director at the Critics' Choice Awards. Leading man Jean Dujardin, who won the Best Actor Oscar, was pipped to the Critics' Choice equivalent by George Clooney for The Descendants, while awards veteranÂ Meryl Streep, who won the Best Actress Oscar for Margaret Thatcher biopic The Iron Lady, lost out to The Help's Viola Davis.
2012's People's Choice Awards were a markedly different affair, however. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 wonÂ four awards including Favourite Movie, while Emma Stone took two prizes, including Favourite Movie Actress. Johnny Depp took home Favourite Movie Actor.
