Although Kristen Stewart has not been getting much notice for her performance in Oscar nominated movie, Still Alice, she hit it big by winning a nomination for French Film's Highest Honor. Still Alice lead actress, Julianne Moore is ruling this award season, but KStew with her performance in Clouds of Sils Maria got herself a major nomination.
Kristen Stewart just got one of the biggest and reputed nomination. The 24-year-old actress received a 2015 César Award nomination for her supporting role in the indie flick Clouds of Sils Maria.
If you didn't know, the Césars are the French equivalent of the Academy Awards. KStew is the first American actress to get César nomination.
The last American actor to receive a César nomination was Adrien Brody. Brody took home the award for Best Actor in 2003 for The Pianist at the César Awards.
Kristen Stewart starring Clouds of Sils Maria also co-stars Juliette Binoche who is also nominated. Stewart plays the assistant of an aging film star (Juliette) looking for a comeback.
The 2015 César Awards will take place Feb. 20 in Paris, two days before this year's Oscars.
This is a really big and good news for KStew who has not got any nomination this award season for her performance in Still Alice. Kristen Stewart created a lot of Oscar buzz for Best Supporting actress but lost it.
Meanwhile, Still Alice actress, Julianne Moore is Oscar nominee for Best Actress. Moore has already won Golden Globes, Critics' Choice Awards and SAG for her performance as an Alzheimer patient in Still Alice.
