Global movie icon Julia Roberts will be the godmother of the Trophée Chopard 2022.
Created in 2001, this prize is awarded each year to a promising actress and actor to highlight the new generation of international cinema. This year, Julia Roberts will present the two winners chosen by the Trophée Chopard Academy with their awards at a prestigious dinner organised during the Cannes Film Festival at the joint invitation of Pierre Lescure, Thierry Frémaux and Caroline Scheufele.
For more than two decades, the winners of the Trophée have consistently confirmed the hopes placed in them.
From Marion Cotillard, who won an Oscar in 2008 for her performance in Olivier Dahan’s La Vie en Rose; Léa Seydoux, who was awarded a Palme d’Or in 2013; Diane Kruger, who won an acting award at Cannes in 2017; Niels Schneider, who won a César Award for Most Promising Actor in 2017; through to Florence Pugh and Jessie Buckley, both nominated for Oscars a few months after being awarded the Chopard Trophy in 2019 and 2021, the award has often heralded a great international career.
