Cannes analysis: The Jury Prize winners and losers to watch from Oscar season

No one can see everything screened in competition at the Cannes Film Festival — there is 11 title this year – I certainly don’t have one. So without judging all the titles that won the award on Saturday I must say that I was shocked by the fact that all five Brits were eligible – Language Titles — Asteroid City, by Wes Anderson Black Flies, Karim Aïnouz by Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire of Firebrand, Todd Haynes’ s May December and Ken Loach of Old Oak – completely ignored by the jury.

It goes without saying that this is not the task of the Cannes jury – this year the jury includes Paul Dano , Brie Larson and recent Palme d’Or winner Ruben Östlund of (2021 squares and 2021 of Sorrow Triangle ) and 2023 of Julia Ducournau (Titane) — trying to herald an Oscar race . But it’s still worth noting to me that in years in a row there’s a fair amount between the Cannes jury’s picks and the Academy’s picks After big overlaps – most notably when Parasite won two top awards – it seems unlikely that there will be many, if any, this year ).

Of course, the college tends primarily to work in English, even as it becomes a more international organisation. And there are plenty of Academy-friendly entries in these five overlooked English titles, especially Natalie Portman and Excellent performance Julianne Moore as actress and she will be in May 12 , Netflix featured million USD to buy, and plans to promote awards ; Alicia Vikander and Jude Law as Katherine Parr and King Henry VIII in Firebrand, which is still seeking US distribution; and Tye Sheridan and Sean Penn

As a young man preparing for medical school and a senior paramedic, respectively, in Black Flies, Open Road will be distributed in the United States.

Two other English-language films showing at the festival, although not in competition, are sure to be major Oscar pushes : Killer of the Flower Moon by )Martin Scorsese from Paramount and Apple TV+ by Leonardo DiCaprio , Lily Gladstone ,

Robert De Niro and Jesse Plemons (Scorsese and His supporters chose not to screen it at the competition ); and Pixar’s latest, Elemental, which ends the feast.

Which movies received honors?

The most Oscar potential is probably the grand prize winner area of ​​interest , British filmmaker Jonathan Glazer’s depiction in German of the life of the Höss family outside the gates of Auschwitz is a true study of the banality of evil. It’s sure to get an Ang ), it also handles Glazer’s recent A movie from a decade ago, Under the Skin; as was the case with that project, I have no doubt it will be widely popular with critics–but I’m not entirely convinced it’s the academy’s cup of tea. Even the way it starts, with a few minutes of blank screens, shocks many who I would consider pretentious, and will likely turn off the interest of Academy members trying to watch it at home on an Academy member-only streaming service.

I find it very unlikely that Germany would choose to submit a film by a non-German filmmaker and/or a film that reflects this on the behavior of the German populace during WW2 Very unfavorable. Therefore, the film’s most likely Oscar hopeful is the lead actress, Sandra Hüller for her role in Madame Höss Interest Area – and the star of the Palme d’Or-winning film,

Justin Trier ‘s Anatomy of a Fall , in which she plays a writer trying to prove her innocence in the death of her husband. (Had Hüller’s film not won the festival’s top two prizes, she would have likely won Best Actress, but the Cannes jury is usually more than willing to spread their honor.)

Anatomy of a Fall will be distributed in the US by Neon, which is also responsible for the last French film to win the Palme d’Or, Titane, which was eventually submitted by France for its Oscar entry, but was not shortlisted. This season, France will have to decide whether to submit Autumn Anatomy or Tran Anh Hung for Best Director, The Pot-au-Feu , starred by French favorites Juliette Binoche and Benoit Magimel and may have a more mainstream appeal. Pot-au-Feu is still seeking a US release.

The jury prize was awarded to Fallen Leaves , Finnish Master Aki Kaurismäki The latest film of , who represented his country in the Best International Feature Film Oscar competition with 24 of Drifting Cloud , disqualified; 2002’s man without a past , nominated; 2004 of Lights in the Dusk , until it is withdrawn; and Le Havre of was not nominated. MUBI will distribute it in the US

Best Screenplay is awarded to Yuji Sakamoto Japanese Film Monster, directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda, who represented his country with 1996 of Nobody Knows, not nominated; and Shoplifters of 2021 were nominated. It’s still seeking a U.S. release.

Merve Dizdar won Best Actress for her entry in Turkish FilmAbout Dry Grasses, directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylon, who previously represented his country with Distant of 2003, not nominated; Three Monkeys from 2006 are shortlisted; 2008 of Once Upon a Time in Anatolia , this is unnamed; 2014, of Winter Sleep, was not nominated; and The Wild Pear Tree of , was not nominated. It is still seeking U.S. distribution.

Then there is the great Japanese actor Kōji Yakusho who won Best Actor Actor Award Perfect Days , a Japanese-German co-production film directed by legendary German filmmaker Wim Wenders . Neon is reportedly close to closing a deal for the film’s US distribution rights. Wenders previously represented Germany at the The American Friend , was not nominated; 1977 of Wings of Desire , not nominated; and shortlisted 2011 The Pina . But it remains to be seen whether Japan or Germany will submit co-productions this season. 2023
