Home Uncategorized Nicole Kidman, Ang Lee, Christoph Waltz Named to Cannes Jury with Spielberg

If you thought Cannes 2013 was shaping up to be amazing, this cinches it. The jury working with Steven Spielberg has been named, and it’s impressive. And ironic. Ang Lee beat Spielberg for Best Director this year at the Oscars with “Life of Pi.” But Ang will be working for Spielberg who lost the Oscar for “Lincoln.” Turnabout is fair play! Oscar winner Nicole Kidman and double Oscar winner Christoph Waltz have also been named. Romanian director Cristian Mungui, a Cannes favorite, French director Daniel Auteil, British writer-director Lynne Ramsay, plus Indian actress Vidya Balan and Japanese Naomi Kawase round the rest of the jury panel. Opening night ceremonies, with Audrey Tatou presiding, and Steven Spielberg as head juror, plus this group on stage– and then everyone will watch Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin’s “The Great Gatsby” in 3D– with Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire in the audience– what a way to kick off Cannes!
