Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical: Jean Dujardin in "The Artist"
And the nominees were:
Joseph Gordon-Levitt in "50/50"
Ryan Gosling in "Crazy, Stupid, Love."
Jean Dujardin in "The Artist"
Brendan Gleeson in "The Guard"
Owen Wilson in "Midnight in Paris"
Funny that Jean Dujardin was able to speak English on the night (kind of) but used a translator when I spoke to him during the 2011 TIFF. Grumble, grumble. Nevertheless, the French star completely deserved the award and was born to wear a tux.
