The Cannes Jury has voted.
Winter Sleep, a three hour Turkish film, won the Palme D’or. Julianne Moore was Best actress for Maps to the Stars. Timothy Spall is best actor for Mr. Turner. Bennett Miller is Best Director for Foxcatcher.
Very interesting choices. First of all, “Foxcatcher” is now the “12 Years a Slave” of 2014. Miller will win or be nominated for a lot of awards this winter. The actors– Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo– will be too.
Timothy Spall will be a Best Actor nominee for “Mr. Turner” this winter. Watch what happens. Sony Pictures Classics has both of these movies, as well as “Whiplash,” which I predict will be a big deal also this fall.
Julianne Moore– “Maps to the Stars” directed by David Cronenberg suddenly gets a huge boost. E One will release it; hopefully they will put some real money into a campaign for Moore, who is just tremendous. She should know that people were cheering for her in the Lumiere Theater tonight. Bravo!
