Oscars 2016: Kristen Stewart Becomes the First American Actress to Win Cesar Award

With the Academy Awards airing on Sunday night, we already have one eye on next year’s Oscar race.  Just two days after the ceremony, I will be releasing the Year in Advanced Predictions and one name that will be pretty high on the Supporting Actress list will be Kristen Stewart for her work in “Clouds of Sils Maria” opposite Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche.  Stewart made history earlier today becoming the first American actress to ever win a Cesar Award.   This is an organization that has rewarded prolific figures in international cinema including Isabelle Adjani (who has the most wins at 5), Isabelle Hupert (who has the most nominations at twelve), and Emmanuelle Riva.

“Clouds of Sils Maria” debuted at many festivals last year including the New York Film Festival where the two stars were both in attendance.

Stewart has already starting to catch the eye of critics as she delivered in two powerhouse performances in 2014.  The first was the vulnerable yet strikingly confident lead in the independent film “Camp X-Ray.”  The other was opposite Academy Award winner nominee Julianne Moore in “Still Alice.”

Get ready for all the Kristen Stewart fans of the internet to ban together, stand outside Cheryl Boone Isaacs house, and make sure she’s nominated in Best Supporting Actress next year.
