oscars_15_Bérénice Bejo

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Bérénice Bejo’s performance in the black-and-white silent film The Artist – last year’s Academy Award winner for Best Picture – is nothing short of praiseworthy. The Argentina-born actress steals the show as Peppy Miller, a bright-eyed aspiring actress with a heart of gold. The role earned her a Best Supporting Actress nod, as well as Best Actress win at the César Awards, France’s equivalent of the Oscars.
