Octavia Spencer vs Berenice Bejo
There really is no competition in this category this year, as the award will clearly be given to Octavia Spencer. Usually, a sure-thing win does not please me, or have any effect on me, but Octavia will take home the Oscar most-deservedly. (Unless the Academy pulls a fast one on me and gives it to Melissa McCarthy. But they won't.) Anyway, I felt as if I should post some sort of Oscar candidate comparison, like last year, because there seems to be a void of Oscar posts, wouldn't you agree? I've seen most of the Best Supporting Actress nominees, excluding Janet McTeer who portrayed a man (I simply will not watch that), so I will just choose Berenice Bejo, who gave a charming performance in The Artist, to compete with Octavia Spencer.
Bérénice Bejo for The Artist - I think I've made it apparent how I claim The Artist to be the greatest, most worthy of the title Best Picture this year. Indeed, this year, we will witness the first silent picture to win since 1927, when Wings won at the first-ever Oscar ceremony. Indeed, I am very positive in my prediction, so much that I would call my prediction plainly stating a fact. (All right, we get it.) In addition to the amazing film itself were two incredible performances by Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo. I believe I've explained myself to the limit on how marvelous they were. (The Artist: A Cinematic Masterpiece) Bérénice Bejo delivered a delightful performance. I realize I've penned the term "delightful" to her before, but that is just what she was: delightful. Like Dujardin, she is greatly talented in providing a fantastic performance with solely her facial expressions. Her cheerful, ambitious aura, as Peppy Miller, throughout the film was simply enchanting, as was her ideal harmony with Jean Dujardin as screen partners. Even though Berenice Bejo will most likely not win the award, I see her transition from French cinema to the Academy Awards as a remarkable itself.
