and now I can go to bed.
First silent movie to win since “Wings”!
Uggie stole the show, and the hearts of audiences everywhere, as the sidekick in The Artist. But not everyone was so excited to have him at the Oscar Roundtable. Plummer complained that Cosmo, the Jack Russell terrier from Beginners, has not gotten enough attention this season. “We had the better dog,” he said.
Live in Austin and wanna see The Artist for free? Here ya go.
Got a Girl Crush On: Bérénice Bejo as Peppy Miller in The Artist
When was the last time you came out of a movie theater smiling ear-to-ear and wanting to click your heels as you walked down the sidewalk? The Artist was pure unadulterated magic and Bérénice Bejo is its grinning, tap-dancing magician.
This movie is a wonder. I wish there were canine Oscars, because the dog in this movie is a great little actor. Plus, he looks like Asta!
I interviewed French actor Jean DuJardin last night. He’s the star of The Artist, which was a Cannes darling this year and won a bunch of awards etc etc blah blah blah. I am sure all of that is important, but I was unable to focus on it as I could not get past how handsome he is. It was like talking to a marble statue…with an adorable French accent and humble, goofy demeanor. Ladies, if you need a new dude for whatever fantasy occupies your brain late at night, I highly recommending casting Jean. Also his last name means, “Of the garden.” Jean of the garden. Crush material at its finest.
Quite timely, as I hope to see his movie in a few hours (it’s showing at AFF).
