Bejo was named best actress for her role in the black and white silent film, which won best film of the year.

The Artist has been picking up steam en route to this year’s Oscars. It’s claimed several best picture awards throughout awards season, including the Critics Choice award for Best Picture on Thursday night in Hollywood.

The Lumiere Awards—France’s equivalent to the Golden Globes—are voted upon by foreign press correspondents in the territory. The Lumiere Awards kick off the prize season in Gaul and are usually a sign of what is to be expected at next month’s prestigious Cesar Awards ceremony.
