KRISTEN STEWART MAKES HISTORY: BREAKS 30-YEAR DROUGHT AS THE FIRST AMERICAN ACTRESS TO RECEIVE A CESAR NOMINATION
She wasn't even born when the last American actress received a nomination.
Indiewire reports that Kristen Stewart has ended a 30-year American actress drought when the 24-year old actress received a nomination for a Cesar Award for Best Supporting Actress from France's Academy of Cinema Arts. The Cesar the French equivalent of the Oscars.
"Stewart picked up the first nomination for an American actress at the Césars since opera singer Julia Migenes in the 1984 film adaptation of "Carmen," nabbing a Best Supporting Actress nod for her role in Olivier Assayas' "Clouds of Sils Maria.""
COSM received 6 nominations in total. Read more about the nominees here.
For Stewart to be the the first American actress to receive a nomination in 30 years is a huge feat to say the least. Let's hope she is able to attend the ceremony being held on February 20th in Paris, France two days before the Academy Awards.
