Chapeau l'Artist!


You know I'm generally not too patriotic on this blog, but today, I'm compelled to be! Tonight, the Academy Awards will take place in the City of Angels and perhaps, a French film - the Artist - may win... Needless to say, most of the French are holding onto their berets with anticipation! We won't know before tomorrow morning's news (or your comments on PDP...) for it takes place at 4 am French time. Anyway, I hope you'll forgive me for not showing you Paris today, but today Silence is a virtue!

  1. I haven't seen it. But after reading a few articles about it, I am pretty certain this will be the big winner at the Oscars.

  13. I notice that Amazon are selling the soundtrack.

    Trouble with these silent CDs is that they all sound, or don't sound, the same. Perhaps I'm just getting old.

  17. Jean Dujardin was so cute when he made his little thank-you speech! In his words, Formidable! Victoire! Géniale!

  18. An historic moment -- Maurice Chevalier, Charles Boyer, and Gérard Depardieu have all been nominated for the "Best Actor" Oscar; but, charming Jean Dujardin has won it (1st time for a Frenchman). ChaChing $$$

    Personally, I think Maurice Chevalier should have won it at least once. He was fabulous!

  20. @Carrie "Congratulations, France!! I hope you get your national holiday (declared or undeclared)" That's an idea!

    @Lois Maurice Chevalier?! Gee you must have been really young when you witnessed that!

    Thank you everyone for your nice words. I guess I really have to see the film now!!
