make for one of the most entertaining films of the year.
I viewed The Artist yesterday and though it was a good film, the only reason it would win BP is because it was a silent film which allowed it to stick out from the rest of the films. To me that's a gimmick and I'm disappointed in the film industry for doiing such.
