The Triumph! Los Angeles us

What a night it was at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, full of emotions and victory for the French team behind the latest blockbuster The Artist.

The film brought down the house by walking away with no less than 5 statuettes, from the following categories: Best Picture, Best Director (Michel Hazanavicius), Best Actor (Jean Dujardin), Costume Design (Mark Bridges) and Music - Original Score(Ludovic Bource).

Such a harvest of wins is both historically and characteristically exceptional; to date, no other French film has collected so many trophies at the Academy Awards. Notably, it is also the first non-Anglo-Saxon film to win Best Picture and Jean Dujardin is the first Frenchman to win Best Actor.

Congratulations The Artist and thank you!
