Jessica is attended the 2013 Giffoni Film Festival in Italy earlier today. She received the Giffoni Experience Award. She brought her grandmother to the ceremony. The first photos are added in our gallery, stay tuned for more additions later on!
Edit: More HQ’s are added thanks to Claudia.
The Maui Film Festival will be held June 12-16 at the Wailea Resort.
Barry Rivers, the director of the event, announced this week that Golden Globe Award winner Jessica Chastain will be the 2013 Maui Film Festival Nova Award recipient.
The Maui Film Festival Nova Award honors a film artist “for their astonishingly original and seamless performances, and the way they consistently infuse the characters they embody with insight, humanity and wisdom.”
Few film artists are as talented and versatile as Jessica Chastain. She has made this clear in the range of characters she has brought to life in her chameleon-like silver screen performances. Jessica is one-of-a-kind and we couldn’t be more pleased to honor her with the 2013 Maui Film Festival Nova Award.
The award will be presented at the Celestial Cinema located at the Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf Course.
You can nominate Jessica for the Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards for her role in “The Heiress” by voting online. She is currently on the shortlist for Favorite Actress in a Play, Favorite Breakthrough Performance and Favorite Onstage Pair with her co-star Dan Stevens. Be sure to go to Broadway.com and nominate her, voting will close tomorrow.
The Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards are special because they’re voted on by the theater’s biggest cheerleaders: its fans. With a bevy of stars, an amazing view of Central Park and a great sense of humor, it’s also the biggest party of the year. The 2013 Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards will be held on Sunday, May 5 at The Allen Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in the Time Warner Center.
“The Heiress” can also be nominated in other categories including Favorite Play Revival, Favorite Actor in a Play.
Jessica was absolutely stunning last night, wearing a custom Armani Prive dress, Christian Louboutin heels, and Harry Winston jewels. She was asked about the dress on the red carpet, and why did she chosen it:
I chose it because I’m such a fan of movies. I love cinema so much and when I saw it, It’s a very ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President.’ It reminds me of old Hollywood glamour.
Jess was nominated as Best Actress for her work in Zero Dark Thirty, but the award goes to Jennifer Lawrence instead. But if you put in mind that two years ago no one knew who she is, and now she’s two times Oscar nominated, it’s a matter of time until she get home with her own Oscar statuette.
I have over 300 HQ pictures added to the gallery. Check it:
Jessica looks AMAZING in Armani. Check the first look, and look back for more pictures after the ceremony!
