Given the frequent flyer miles they're collecting en masse, it's impossible to know where The Artist's team is at any time. But the French site "About My Star" was in the room with them when the nominations were announced and they filmed this live video. As you can see, producer Thomas Langmann, writer/director Michel Hazanavicius and his stars Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo were wide awake; no one in this crowd can use the always suspect "I was sleeping when I heard!" line.
Of course if they were in France during the announcement, it would have been 2:30 PM and that would be a strange time to be sleeping. 2:30 PM is a much more reasonable hour to be wide awake with champagne bottles uncorked! VIDEO AFTER THE JUMP
I guess they've been following the Oscar blogs if they knew just who to be surprised by ;) Though it is worth noting that some of us predicted Terrence Malick.
