There are about a billion tumblrs out there, covering everything from hilarious cat pictures (there are quite a few of those, actually) to how to restore a first generation Ford Mustang to stunning facts about the sun. If you have an interest in a topic — any topic — chances are someone's blogging about it, for better or worse.
There are quite a few movie-related tumblrs out there, too, and finding the ones that are worth a damn — either for valuable info or just as a way to pass the time in the most amusing way possible — can be a daunting task. Here are the 10 from this year that definitely warrant regular return visits. And don't forget to check out our official Tumblr in the meantime! Get More »
Well, if George Clooney asks you to be in his movie, what are you gonna do, say "No?"
Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin and Cate Blanchett are just a few of the actors that are making up the ensemble of Clooney's World War II drama, "The Monuments Men," according to Deadline.
"The Monuments Men" centers around a group of art historians and museum curators who join forces to recover renowned works of art stolen by the Nazis before Hitler can destroy them.
Clooney, who co-wrote the screenplay with Grant Heslov and is set to direct, will also star in the film, with John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban also signing on to join the cast. Get More »
Ever since "The Artist"-fever transformed it into a Best Picture-winning movie phenomenon, its dapper star Jean Dujardin has become an inspiration to young people everywhere, which is why he's created a new advertisement to teach children the importance of… smoking?
Those rascals at Funny Or Die (or Le Funny Ou Die) have followed up on their previous rendezvous with Dujardin where he auditioned for every villain role in Hollywood by crafting this awesome faux-commercial that finally tells the truth about cigarettes: they're so cool.
You see like, most Frenchmen, from Jean-Paul Belmondo to Jean Reno, Jean Dujardin was born with a cigarette in his mouth and his arms around a hot girl, and it's simply our stubborn Puritan inclinations in America that keep our kids from achieving this level of sophistication. Get More »
Jean Dujardin is an Oscar-winning actor. It wasn't always this way.
The past will always come back to haunt you, and in this case the past takes the form of "Brice de Nice," a 2005 French film in which "The Artist" himself plays the title role, a platinum blonde spoiled rich teenager of 30 who fancies himself a surfer (even though he's never actually surfed). After he suddenly finds himself penniless, he decides to rob a bank -- and indulges the opportunity to perform a rap number while he's at it (after hitting a guy in the face with his surfboard and saying he wants to "make a withdrawal").

A movie about the silent film era won Best Picture and the host -- a favorite in the '90s -- was returning for his ninth stint as Academy Awards host … it's no surprise, then, that the 84th annual Academy Awards had a very retro vibe.
"The Artist," the silent, black-and-white movie about the early days of Hollywood when wordless films gave way to the "talkies," won five Oscars in total, while Billy Crystal, returning as host for the first time since 2004, opened the show with both an amusing video package and a less clever musical nod to the nominated movies.
Elsewhere, veteran actress Meryl Streep won her third Oscar (and her first in almost 30 years), while Christopher Plummer became a first-time Oscar winner -- and set a new record as the oldest winner -- at age 82. Get More »
The Academy has been thoroughly thanked for another year.
Billy Crystal ran a good-looking show at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, a ceremony that featured a moving and tearful acceptance speech from Octavia Spencer, a classy and distinguished one from Christopher Plummer, an impromptu backside shot from Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz, a vodka shot from Rose Byrne and Melissa McCarthy at the mention of the name "Scorsese" and several big wins for "The Artist."
Re-live the magic with our gallery of the 2012 Oscars show.
"Hugo" and "The Artist" had the best night at the 84th annual Academy Awards — by the numbers, at least.
Martin Scorsese's kids' movie and "The Artist" each took home five Oscars, but Michel Hazanavicius' black and white film got top honors for snagging a few of the major awards.
"The Artist" earned the Oscar for Best Picture — the first for a silent film since "Wings" won at the very first Academy Awards way back in 1929. Get More »
Scandal has struck the Oscars as "The Artist" star Jean Dujardin has been caught sleeping around.
And by "scandal," we mean "a hilarious internet meme." And by sleeping around, we mean literally sleeping thanks to this series of doctored photos showing the French star dozing in a variety of unexpected places. Seriously, Jean, most people at least wait for the Oscar telecast to begin before they fall asleep! Get More »
The unofficial theme of the 2012 awards season could be "Vive la France," with the French-helmed "The Artist" picking up dozens of awards and going into Oscar night with 10 nominations, second only to 11 nods for "Hugo."
The movie has picked up wins for director Michel Hazanavicius and leading man Jean Dujardin at the BAFTAs, Critics Choice, Directors Guild and Screen Actors Guild Awards, as well as a multitude of trophies for the film, its score, art direction, editing and costumes. It's not just picking up steam, it's a veritable awards locomotive.

With "The Artist" positioned so strongly for the Academy Awards, and its key players, including nominated costar Bérénice Bejo, being French (even though the film was shot entirely in Los Angeles, where it is set during the dawn of the talkies), we decided to take a look at the roster of other French talent that has broken out of the foreign film category to become part of Oscar history.
