Oscars 2012: 'The Artist' Named Best Picture

"The Artist" has been named the Best Picture of 2011 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The black-and-white, largely silent film, directed by Michel Hazanavicius, is set in Hollywood at the dawn of the sound era. It follows a matinee idol (Jean Dujardin) unable to adjust to talkies, and the young ingénue (Berenice Bejo) whose career flourishes as his declines.
