Congratulations to THE ARTIST and HUGO

It was a GREAT night for silent films, with THE ARTIST winning the five top awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor: Jean Dujardin, Best Director: Michel Hazanavicius, Best Original Score by Ludovic Bource and Best Costume.

Hugo won the five top awards for Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Best Visual Effects, Art Direction and Best Cinematography.

I'm just THRILLED to see THE ARTIST win best picture! I have seen it three times, already, and loved it more each time I saw it. I have been listening to the score since January and it has been great to write Edna Purviance's family biography to. 

Here's the original trailer that excited me about the film last May. And now it would be a great time to see again! Watch for it in your area!

UPDATE! Starting MARCH 2, 2012, The ARTIST will be increasing the theatre screens from 900+ to 2000! If you haven't seen it, see it early.

UPDATE: A wonderful open letter to Jean Dujardin from Melissa Fairbanks, the granddaughter to Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. - Jean Dujardin did thank Melissa, during this thank you speech, at the Oscars. LINK
