Actor Jean Dujardin won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical for his performance as a fading silent film star in Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist. In the above photo, Dujardin – who also won the Best Actor Award for The Artist in Cannes last year – poses backstage in the press room with his Golden Globe at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA, on Sunday, January 15.

In many ways, The Artist borrows elements from George Cukor's What Price Glory?, in which Constance Bennett plays a rising star and Lowell Sherman a troubled producer, and the first two A Star Is Born movies, the first directed by William A. Wellman, and starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March; the second directed by Cukor, and starring Judy Garland and James Mason. All three movies, in turn, were inspired by real-life stories of silent film and 1930s performers such as Colleen Moore, John Gilbert, Ina Claire, Greta Garbo, John Bowers, James Murray, John Barrymore, and others.

Among Dujardin's other film credits are two with Michel Hazanavicius, OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies and OSS 117: Lost in Rio. Additionally, Dujardin starred or was featured in Ca$h, Brice de Nice / The Brice Man, Lucky Luke and the Daltons, Welcome to the Roses, The Clink of Ice, Little White Lies, and Nicole Garcia's recent A View of Love, with Marie-Josée Croze and Toni Servillo. Dujardin's upcoming films include The Players, and (reportedly) Möbius and A Stormy Summer Night.

Dujardin received his Best Actor Golden Globe from Natalie Portman, last year's Best Actress - Drama winner for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. Among the other presenters at this year's ceremony were The Women's Debra Messing, The Queen's Helen Mirren, Crazy Stupid Love's Julianne Moore, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol's Paula Patton, The Tree of Life's Brad Pitt, 50/50's Seth Rogen, E.W.'s Madonna, The Tourist's Johnny Depp, The Skin I Live In's Antonio Banderas, Sherlock Holmes' Robert Downey Jr., Source Code's Jake Gyllenhaal, Frida's Salma Hayek, and Magic Mike's Channing Tatum.

Besides Dujardin, The Artist features Bérénice Bejo, John Goodman, Penelope Ann Miller, Missi Pyle, James Cromwell, Malcolm McDowell, and Uggie the dog.
