Kristen Stewart Continues to Win All the Awards for ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’
K-Stew continues to reign as the indie movie Queen/Queen of all the awards that she is.
Kristen Stewart took home yet another Best Supporting Actress award for her magnetic role in Clouds of Sils Maria, this time by the Alliance of Women Film Journalists’ EDA Awards, presented Tuesday (Jan. 12).
Stewart won her first award for the film last February, when she made history by becoming the first American actress to win a César, the French equivalent of an Oscar. It received five other Cesar Award nominations, including Best Actress (for Juliette Binoche), Best Director (for Olivier Assayas), Best Original Screenplay, Best Film, and Best Original Screenplay.
Although Clouds of Sils Maria was screened at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival on May 23, 2014, where it was up for the coveted Palme d’Or, it didn’t come out stateside until April 2015, thus making it eligible for the 2015 – 2016 film award honors in America.
So far, K-Stew has picked up a total of 19 (!!) Best Supporting Actress nominations by Critics Awards associations. She’s won eight, including the New York Film Critics Circle award and National Society of Film Critics award, and has been a runner-up four times, including by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and Toronto Film Critics Association. Two critics awards are still pending – the London Film Critics’ Circle and the Seattle Film Critics Survey.
The jury is still out as to whether or not she’ll be nominated for her first Oscar this year. Stewart’s critical acclaim could be positive for her, even though she was not nominated at the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, or Critics’ Choice Awards.
The Academy Award nominees are to be announced Thursday morning, so here’s to hoping!
Clouds of Sils Maria co-stars Binoche and Chloë Grace Moretz and was directed by Assayas. Stewart plays the assistant to a veteran movie star (Binoche), who comes face-to-face with a younger reflection of herself when she stars in the play that was her breakout role over 20 years earlier.
