ABSTRACT - The aim of the article is to reveal the place and the role of I-narrative as a tool of persuasive communication in a pseudopersonal communication - direct, pseudo double-sided and pseudodialogic as experts define the film as an opportunity to influence viewers. We have selected the films that are nominated or received the award "Oscar" for best picture because they allow us to follow this direction clearly as well as they have a great scale of influence because of the "closed circle" of - selected films from the Film Academy due to excellent performance on one hand and on the other - excellent movies, because they are chosen by the film Academy of the United States. The methods used are selected so as to be adequate to the studied objects. Because the films are works of art of a complex nature, the methods used are inherent in film critical studies and art history as the most broadly used are the specialized methods of description and analysis, and additional disclosure namely the I-narrative used methods typical for narratology. The results are coordinated with studies carried out in different time research on the place and role of I-narrative and other forms of literature, and the performing and screen arts. Its crucial role is being proven in persuassive communication in dialogue or polylogue as the main narrative integrity that can achieve persuasive effect. After analyzing conclusions are drawn that the films nominated for "Oscar" in the category for "Best Picture" in the period 2013-2016 year are works which not only have gathered first-class actors who can inoculate with the script’s characters, but also the directing teams have turned their attention both to literary essential forms of I-narrative and the means of its transformation into a feature film.
