'The Artist' took home the Oscar, but which film do you think should have won the statue?
Last night, for the first time since the inaugural Oscar awards in 1929, a silent film won Best Picture at The Academy Awards. The Artist, a melodramatic love story set at the end of the silent film era, also took home the honors of Best Director, Best Costume Design, Best Original Score and Best Actor. The Academy may have spoken, but who would you have picked for Best Picture? Martin Scorsese's Hugo, Steven Spielberg's War Horse, The Help or one of the other nominees?
