We finally know who uncle Oscar's winners are and the French silent movie "The Artist" definitely was the biggest of them all, managing to sweep away both the Best Picture and Best Actor statues with only a few words, amazing music and a fabulous dog. I felt really happy about how things turned out, because I grew up with Jean Dujardin's foolish and funny roles in Brice de Nice or OSS 117 and this was a way for me to see how much he grew as an actor. I felt really proud of him! This one's for you Jean haha!
In order to celebrate the Oscars, here is a series of minimal movie posters created by visual artist Hunter Langston for the nominees for Best Picture:
Did you already get to see any of these movies? Which one do you recommend then? I only had the chance to see Midnight in Paris and it was breathtaking! Woody Allen at his best - no wonder he got the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. I can't wait to see The Artist, I'll tell you all about it after I see it! Here's the trailer if you're as intrigued as I am:
