Usually the Spirit Awards Best Picture does not translate to the the Oscars Best Picture.  This year will be the exception. The Artist’s strength continues to be proven by winning 4 Spirit Awards. It was good to see a few Oscar snubs get some recognition like, Shailene Woodley, 50/50 and Margin Call. Still nothing for Melancholia, but I will get over it.
