The North American awards season gets underway

The 2010 Hollywood awards season officially opened Tuesday with the announcement of the 2010 Golden Globe Awards lineup.

A Prophet by Jacques Audiard has been selected as one of five candidates for the Best Film in a Foreign Language title. It finds itself alongside The White Ribbon by Michael Haneke, its main competitor since the last Festival de Cannes in May 2009.
Marion Cotillard continues her successful American career and features on the Best Actress short list for her performance in the musical Nine.

Already this weekend, critics' associations of several cities have distinguished several French productions.
The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA), which groups together sixty critics, gave its trophy for Best Film in a Foreign Language to Summer Hours by Olivier Assayas. Distributed by IFC, the film had a fine career last summer, talling more than $1million in ticket sales. L’Heure d’été was also awarded the same prize by the New York film critics.
The LAFCA caused a sensation by awarding Best Actress to Yolande Moreau for Séraphine. This film also attracted good crowds upon its release in June: thanks to extremely favorable reviews, it raked up $600,000 in admissions with no more than twenty prints in circulation.

In Los Angeles, just like in New York, by Michael Haneke was awarded the trophy in the Best Cinematography category, attributed to Christian Berger. The film was also awarded Best Foregin Film by New York Web critics.
