The 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival is officially in full swing, with nearly everyone in Hollywood transported to the prestigious French fest for a week and a half of wheeling and dealing. Catch up on all the goings-on with Cannes Chatter.
The Oscars are eight months away, but the race has officially begun. After the Cannes premiere of Rust and Bone, the latest film from Jacque Audiard (the Oscar-nominated A Prophet), critics are already pegging Marion Cotillard as a possible contender for the Best Actress award. The Guardian is blunt: “Rust and Bone has to be a real contender for prizes, and, the odds will be shortening to vanishing point for Cotillard getting the best actress award.” AwardsDaily suggests Cotillard’s given her “second best performance,” (the actress previously won the Oscar for her work in the film La Vie en Rose), while RopesOfSilicon describes her work as “one scene after another of sheer perfection to the point she turns Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’ into an emotional epiphany.” I don’t know what that means, but it sounds amazing.
