FEEL FREE TO ADD MORE IF I MISSED ANYTHING and I probably did but she KILLED this era :)


“Cannes [award for the role in ‘The Hunt’] was a very, very big experience for me. I can’t overestimate how much it meant for me in the sense that I can’t really measure it in terms of career. But while we didn’t make the film for awards, I would be a liar to say that we don’t cherish it when we get a nice pat on the back. I was really happy that day [in Cannes] and so, so proud of the film.”

- Mads Mikkelsen about his Best Actor award


Paterson (2016)

Directed by Jim Jarmusch

Cinematography by Frederick Elmes


From “Give AquariusSensational Sonia Braga an Oscar Nomination This Year,” by Matthew Eng:

“As the film’s magnetic center, Braga exhibits a queenly command over the film, negotiating Clara’s multitudinous moods, impressions, and impetuous urges with the discipline and dynamism of a true and timeless master. Braga is sly, sensual, simmering, heartsore, and, finally, triumphant, delivering one of the year’s mightiest acting achievements, a wondrously understated performance of kaleidoscopic complexity, leonine intensity, and soaring beauty. In an ideal world, Braga’s spiky and soulful tour de force would be at the very top of The Academy’s Best Actress ballots come voting time.”

Seriously. Give her an Oscar nomination.
