Actress Natalie Portman won her first Oscar for best actress for 'Black Swan'. She couldn't hold her tears of joy when she grabbed the Best Actress Oscar.

Tearful throughout her emotional, gracious speech, the soon-to-be-mum seemingly forgot no one who helped her on 'Black Swan' and throughout her Hollywood career, which began when she was 11, reports UsMagazine.com.
