    It has been a terrible year for French cinematic legends.
    First Emmanuelle Riva (who was also 89), a week ago Claude Rich (who co-starred with Moreau in François Truffaut’s The Bride Wore Black) and now the loss that hurts the most, the irreplaceable, Jeanne Moreau passed away in her home in Paris.

    Moreau was one of the most influential and important actors of the 20th century and to my mind, France’s greatest film actress period. It’s a shame that she has never been nominated for an Academy Award (especially considering Academy’s love towards French leading ladies) and I always thought she was the most deserving candidate to receive an Honorary Oscar. Now she never will.

    Many of her obituaries falsely stated that she did receive one in 1998, but unfortunately, it was just a career tribute.

    Adieu, Madame Moreau… R.I.P.

    Yes, no Honorary Oscar! I hope they give Doris Day one this year before it is too late!
