Today we take a look at the picture that dominated the 84th Academy Awards: The Artist. Although released in 2011, this is a silent, black and white film. The innovative film by Michel Hazanavicious, won also Best Direction, Best Actor in a leading role (Jean Dujardin) , Best Costume Design and Best Original Score.
The competition in the Best Picture category was hard, with Alexander Payne's The Descendants, The Help, Midnight in Paris and Moneyball being some of the other nominated films, The Artist's old school Hollywood glow though, did the trick for the Academy and earned the title of the best film in 2011.
Ever since I first set foot on a cinema theatre, I knew that something magical was happening there....
