Silence Is Golden … Just Ask Oscar

Last night was the 84th Academy Awards show. .  Billy Crystal hosted the awards, which is the best thing that has happened since the last time he hosted.  Ok, well since Bob Hope, anyway.

As usual, everyone was dressed to the “nines” and expressed gratitude, and … for some … genuine surprise at being selected as the best in their category.  I have to say, however, that I don’t think many were surprised when Michel Hazanavicius’ “The Artist” was named best picture.  “The Artist” is a look at the earliest days and beginning of Hollywood.   Jean Dujardin stars as silent film star George Valentin.   Berenice Bejo stars as the young girl who becomes a silent film sensation.   But, it is Uggie, the Jack Russell Terrier, who steals the show in his portrayal of Jack …. Valentines dog.

 I’ve yet to see the film, and it is on my to-do list.  But to me, the real message of the movie is “loud and clear.”  It is still true that … in many situations …. silence really is … golden.  Just ask Oscar.
