Oscars: Best actor Dujardin's onstage speech
Jean Dujardin won the best actor awards at the Oscars for his role in 'The Artist'.

New Delhi: Jean Dujardin won the Oscars for the Best Actor for his role in 'The Artist'. Dujardin was competing with heavy-weights like George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Gary Oldman for the title of the best actor in a leading role.

Jean Dujardin: Thank you. Oui! I love your country. Thank you to the Academy. It's funny because in 1929 it wasn't Billy Crystal, but Douglas Fairbanks who hosted the first Oscar ceremony. Tickets cost five dollars and it lasted 15 minutes. Times have changed. So thank you Douglas Fairbanks. Yes Melissa, your grandfather's spirit and joie de vivre inspired me for this role. And so many of you here tonight have inspired me. Thank you Michel, thank you for this incredible gift. Thank you my wonderful partner Berenice Bejo. Thank you the wonderful cast and crew. My wife, I love you. Kisses Simon, Jules, Chloe. And if George Valentin could speak, he'd say [French]. Merci beaucoup. I love you.
