"The Artist" Wins Best Picture on Oscar Night
I watched the Oscars last night even though I haven't yet seen any of the movies nominated for best picture. Many friends, however, who've seen "The Artist" told me how thrilled they were with the entertaining movie, so I was glad to see it win. It's Bérénice Bejo who I think is so stunning, and I think that's because she reminds me of Natalie Wood. (I've heard other people say the same.) Of course, there is only one Natalie, but there's something so sparkling about this actress.
I was wondering if the Academy might highlight, or even mention "West Side Story" being its 50th anniversary just passed, but they didn't. If they had, I think many people would've recognized similarities between the two actresses. There are moments I've seen of the movie "The Artist" where the resemblance is striking.
