Jean Dujardin was the first Frenchman to win an Oscar (though Gérard Depardieu, Charles Boyer, and Maurice Chevalier had tried in the past). Dujardin's competitors were Demián Bichir for Chris Weitz' A Better Life, Brad Pitt for Bennett Miller's Moneyball, Gary Oldman for Tomas Alfredson's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and George Clooney for Alexander Payne's The Descendants.

Last year, Portman was seen in the critical and box office disaster Your Highness, opposite James Franco; the Marvel movie Thor, directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring Chris Hemsworth in the title role; and the popular romantic comedy No Strings Attached, with Ashton Kutcher. There are no Natalie Portman movies scheduled for 2012, though she's currently filming Terrence Malick's Lawless, to open in 2013. Her Lawless co-stars are The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's Rooney Mara, Drive's Ryan Gosling, Elizabeth's Cate Blanchett, The Dark Knight Rises' Christian Bale, and Kaboom's Haley Bennett.
