Dujardin's Best Actor competition consists of Demián Bichir for Chris Weitz's A Better Life, George Clooney for Alexander Payne's The Descendants, Brad Pitt for Bennett Miller's Moneyball, Gary Oldman for Tomas Alfredson's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Dujardin is a first-time Oscar nominee. Just recently, he won three major Best Actor awards: the BAFTA, the SAG Award, and the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy/Musical.

Among Dujardin's other movie credits are two James Bond-ish spoofs directed by Michel Hazanavicius: OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies and OSS 117: Lost in Rio. In addition, Dujardin starred or was featured in numerous French productions, among them 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 A View of Love, featuring Marie-Josée Croze and Toni Servillo. Dujardin's upcoming movies include The Players, and (purportedly) Eric Rochant's Möbius (possibly co-starring Cécile De France) and Fabrice Camoin's A Stormy Summer Night (possibly also featuring Juliette Binoche and Daniel Auteuil).

Besides Dujardin, The Artist cast includes Hazanavicius' off-screen companion and OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies leading lady Bérénice Bejo, Barton Fink's John Goodman, Chaplin/The Freshman's Penelope Ann Miller, Miss Nobody's Missi Pyle, Babe's 1995 Oscar nominee James Cromwell (son of director John Cromwell and actress Kay Johnson, both of whom were working in Hollywood at the dawn of the sound era), A Clockwork Orange/Caligula's Malcolm McDowell, and Golden Collar Award winner Uggie the dog.

The 2012 Academy Awards will be presented on Sunday, February 26, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center. In the United States, the Oscarcast will be broadcast live by the ABC Television Network.

    Definitely Jean Dujardin should win. I will never forget the dressing room scene or his dance with Berenice Bejo. This is a movie so suited for a sad economy as was "Midnight in Paris". Jean made this middle-aged lady's heart go pitterpat!
