Jean Dujardin beat George Clooney for Alexander Payne's family drama The Descendants. Clooney was considered the favorite for both the SAG Awards and the Best Actor Oscar. The picture has since gotten fuzzier as far as the Academy Awards are concerned. Dujardin's fellow SAG Award competitors were Demián Bichir for Chris Weitz's A Better Life, Brad Pitt for Bennett Miller's Moneyball, and Leonardo DiCaprio for Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar.

Among Dujardin's other movie 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 movies include The Players, and (reportedly) Möbius and A Stormy Summer Night.

Besides Dujardin, The Artist features Bérénice Bejo, John Goodman, Penelope Ann Miller, Missi Pyle, James Cromwell, Malcolm McDowell, and Uggie the dog. The film's cast lost to that of Tate Taylor's The Help (Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Sissy Spacek, Cicely Tyson, Jessica Chastain, Bryce Dallas Howard, Mary Steenburgen). Now, the Big Question: Will Jean Dujardin be the next Bond villain?
