Days before it will allegedly sweep the Academy Awards in Los Angeles, "The Artist" did just that at the 37th Cesar Awards in Paris. Michel Hazanavicius's black-and-white nod to the silent era won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress for Academy Award nominee Bérénice Bejo, Best Original Score, Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction. Who didn't win from "The Artist"? French star Jean Dujardin, who many believe will take this year's Best Acting honor at the Academy Awards. Dujardin lost out to Omar Sy for "Untouchable."
