At the 84th Oscars, “The Artist” became only the second ever silent film to win best picture. The first (and until this year) last non-talky to win best “Best Picure) was “Wings” back in May 16, 1929 at the very first Academy Awards that was then held accross the road, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
Not only is The Artist a silent film, but unusually it’s also shot in black and white. The last time a black and white film won for best picture was in 1993, for Steven Spielberg’s holocaust drama Schindler’s List. Before that a whole 33 years has passed since The Apartment best picture winner in 1960
Best Actor Award went to dapper frenchman Jean Dujardin, with The Artist’s director Michel Hazanavicius & producer Thomas Langmann delighted to win the Best Movie Oscar.
Stunning co-star Berenice Bejo, nominated for best supporting actress, lost to “The Help” Co-star , but can console herself that she can keep her alabaster skin damage free, as she, Jean Dujardin, Michel Hazanavicius & Thomas Langmann all nabbed a pair of 50 UPF Sunny Sleevez in their treat filled SWAG bags valued at over $7000 which also included a new suitcase, so Oscar can travel to his new home in style!
