I would just like to say that I did not care for The Artist at all. I've seen plenty of silent movies that are more imaginative. It was too much of a dead recreation of the era for me. A fine piece of nostalgia, but nothing special or progressive for the art of cinema.
I guess that makes it the perfect best picture nominee.
@pemulis If I can recall correctly, it just brought them together. There were no special powers or anything, they just thought it would bring them all together forever. It was fucked up reading it as a young'un.
