The Artist

"The Artist," the black-and-white love letter to the silent film era, was named best picture, comedy or musical, at the 69th Golden Globes on Sunday.

The film, directed by Michel Hazanavicius and starring Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo, has been collecting critical acclaim and (numerous trophies) since its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011. The movie tells the story of the relationship between a silent movie A-lister and the plucky upstart whose career begins to eclipse his as "talkies" become all the rage in Hollywood.

Dujardin and Bejo were nominated separately, as was Hazanavicius for his direction and the movie's script. Ludovic Bource was nominated for the movie's score as well. Dujardin and Bource won.
