Not so fast George!
Just when everybody thought that, the powerful George Clooney probably would cakewalk his way to the Oscars, here comes Jean Dujardin to put a little brake to that notion.
Jean Dujardin won the best-actor plum of the recently concluded Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Dujardin won the top acting prize of his portrayal of a silent-era superstar who struggled when talking pictures took over silent film in “The Artist.”
Screen Actors Guild Awards is a good barometer of one’s Oscars chances since typically, winners of SAGs were more likely to win the Oscars comes February.
The probability of a Dujardin Oscars win will at least put a little suspense of the top acting prize comes Oscars rather than the George Clooney expected win that will probably just make everybody yawn as it was already expected.
