a mini French revolution when Best Actor Oscar winner Jean Dujardin arrivedIt was a mini French revolution when Best Actor Oscar winner Jean Dujardin arrived back home in Paris to a chaotic mob of fans, cameras and police at Charles de Gaulle Airport on Tuesday.

The 39-year-old "The Artist" star got a hero's welcome and made his way through the pandemonium with his Academy Award in hand.

Imagine how much crazier it would have been if Uggie were with him.

It was fun to hear a Frenchman say that he loves America. I'll never hear that again in my lifetime.

If any award show needs to be updated the Oscars win hands down. How many people saw this movie? Probably only the ones who had to view it in order to vote on it.

I loved The Artist and Jean Dujardin did a great job in it, as did the other actors. The movie was shown at our local "art house" theater. I think I have become a movie snob over the years - many mainstream movies are not nearly as good or as thought-provoking as the small, independent ones. Congratulations to Mr. Dujardin!
