    I know she won the berlinale best actress and the Cesar award for best actress but those aren’t the best precursors awards. She wasn’t nominated at the golden globe or any critics circle award for that film at all. How was she able to get nominated did she just campaign really hard for that nomination?

    I have no relevant commentary to offer but I am the biggest fan of Isabelle. Watching Possession for the first time tonight!

    Looks like it was her time. The film was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, the competition in Best Actress was weak and she had already spent two decades (undeservedly) getting awards like Cannes, Cesar and David di Donatello.

    Oh cmon she at least deserved the cesar for possession. She really did give an amazing performance in the movie

    She got the spot that was expected to go to Sally Field for Steel Magnolias. I think Sally was still suffering backlash over the “you like me” speech.

    Poor Sally though. Did that last through her non-nomination of Forrest Gump then?

    The fact that Adjani is absolutely sensational in the movie must have helped too 🙂

    There were others to consider, like Andie Macdowell. Even though she was terrific in Sex, Lies and Videotape, her chances were probably hurt by the movie being too “indie” for the Academy, despite hitting everywhere expect BAFTA. Strange.

    It was much different back then. You can’t look at it through the funnel of today. There was no SAG awards, no BFCA awards, and the BAFTA would take place after the Oscars. Even the Golden Globes were a bit iffy. Tom Cruise beat DDL at the Globes, but DDL was the one who won the Oscar.
