After the Golden Globes, the Lumieres shine
In Paris, just as in Hollywood, yesterday foreign correspondents presented their awards to French cinema.
Although reduced to a press conference, the 65th Golden Globes awards ceremony twice celebrated French cinema. After Anouk Aimée for her performance in A Man and a Woman, Marion Cotillard is the second French actress to win the Golden Globe for Best Actress. Nominated in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy category, Cotillard was awarded the prize for her stunning portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. The Best Foreign Language Film award went to The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, for which Julian Schnabel also won Best Director.
These awards followed a wave of nominations for both films. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly was nominated among the five best productions by the PGA, the five best screenplays by the WGA, Julian Schnabel was nominated among the five best directors by the DGA, and Marion Cotillard was nominated among the five best actresses by the SAG. The Oscar nominations will be announced January 20; the Golden Globe results augur well for both films, and their directors and stars, being on the list.
The very same evening as the Golden Globes, the Lumieres announced their honors at Unifrance's 10th Rendezvous with French Cinema in Paris. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly flew away with the trophy for Best Film, while its lead Mathieu Amalric won Best Actor for his portrayal of Jean-Dominique Dauby. Marion Cotillard won Best Actress, and the Lumieres for Best Female and Male Newcomer were awarded to Hafsia Herzi (The Secret and the Grain) and Jocelyn Quivrin (Romance of Astree and Celadon). Best Director went to Abdellatif Kechiche for The Secret of the Grain and Best Screenplay went to Alfred Lot for La Chambre des morts. Nadir Moknèche's Délice Paloma took home the trophy for Best Foreign Film in the French Language.
