Madame Le President is back, just to become òa Signora Presidente or la Presidentessa!
Cate Blanchett has been named head of jury of the 77th Venice Film Festival (September 2-12, 2020) on January 10 by the Board of Directors of the Biennale di Venezia chaired by Paolo Baratta, who confirmed the recommendation of the Director of the Venice Film Festival, Alberto Barbera.
In accepting the proposal, Cate Blanchett said: “Every year I look expectantly to the selection at Venice and every year it is surprising and distinct. Venice is one of the most atmospheric film festivals in the world – a celebration of the provocative and inspirational medium that is cinema in all its forms. It is a privilege and a pleasure to be this year’s jury president.”
Alberto Barbera commented that “Cate Blanchett is not just an icon of contemporary cinema, courted by the greatest directors of the past twenty years and adored by moviegoers of every kind. Her commitment in the artistic and humanitarian fields and to the protection of the environment, as well as her defense of the emancipation of women in a film industry still coming to terms with male prejudice, have made her an inspiration for society as a whole. Her immense talent as an actress, combined with her unique intelligence and sincere passion for cinema, are the ideal qualities for a Jury President. It will be a great pleasure to welcome her to Venice again in this new capacity, after having applauded her magnificent performances in the films Elizabeth by Shekhar Kapur and I’m Not There by Todd Haynes, which won her the Coppa Volpi as Best Actress in 2007”.
On the final night (September 12, 2020) of the upcoming 77th Venice Film Festival, the International Jury of Venezia 77, chaired by Cate Blanchett and composed of seven international celebrities in the spheres of film and culture from different countries, will assign the following official prizes among the feature-length films in the Competition:
· Golden Lion for Best Film
· Silver Lion – Grand Jury Prize
· Silver Lion – Award for Best Director
· Coppa Volpi for Best Actor
· Coppa Volpi for Best Actress
· Award for Best Screenplay
· Special Jury Prize
· Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best New Young Actor or Actress
One week ago the 77th Golden Globes Awards took place in Los Angeles, but we still have some pics to add to the gallery! We had replaced some smaller images with HQ ones as well. We are still deeply sorry for not opening the albums as soon as we posted the pictures the first time. Enjoy (now)!
Good evening, everyone. Last night Cate attended the 77th Golden Globe Awards where she was nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her work in Where’d You Go, Bernadette?. She didn’t win the award, which went to Awkwafina. She also presented the nominated movie Joker.
Cate Blanchett was out last night to host a special screening of the documentary For Sama
FOR SAMA is both an intimate and epic journey into the female experience of war. A love letter from a young mother to her daughter, the film tells the story of Waad al-Kateab’s life through five years of the uprising in Aleppo, Syria as she falls in love, gets married and gives birth to Sama, all while cataclysmic conflict rises around her.
Her camera captures incredible stories of loss, laughter and survival as Waad wrestles with an impossible choice– whether or not to flee the city to protect her daughter’s life, when leaving means abandoning the struggle for freedom for which she has already sacrificed so much.
