    Here's something I don't get: The argument for Dujardin winning everything is "He does it all... WITHOUT SAYING A SINGLE WORD!!!"

    Yet, if anyone bothered to see Tinker Tailor, they'd know that Oldman practically does the same exact thing!!!

    He's got, like, one monologue and three other complete lines in that flick. AND HE'S PHENOMENAL!!!

      But the three lines are basically just him repeating "And then what happened?" over and over again.

    "The Artist" was the Best Screenplay of the year? Really? Oy, it's going to win the Oscar, too, I suppose. Better start drinking now.

    Streep wins the BAFTA and goes on to Berlin for the Golden Bear Life Achievement Award. I just don't see how Oscar can ignore her again this year.
