Wow, this year it was hard to choose! The nominees for Best Picture are some of my favorite films I have seen in a long time. 'The Help' and 'Midnight in Paris' to name a few, but nothing comes close to the way I felt about 'The Artist'! Such a wonderful film.. Not just a wonderful "silent film" but a wonderful film all around! Silent films take acting and directing to a whole new level! I have a new found appreciation for them after seeing this movie.
As for Best Screenplay... Hands down, 'Midnight in Paris' has to win!!! Fingers crossed for Woody Allen, not that he needs it.
