The Oscars might be awarded for the biggest cinematic achievements among popular films, however, the bit smaller-scale international prizes are just as prestigious (if sometimes not even more valuable). Abdellatif Kechiche's explicit art film about a lesbian couple's love story, Blue Is The Warmest Color, has not only collected the Palme d'Or at the Cannes film festival in May, the film now earned another jury's appreciation in France.
As Deadline reports, France's prestigious Prix Louis Delluc has gone to Blue Is The Warmest Color. Cannes President oversees the 20 member jury for the Delluc award, which was established in 1937. According to the site, last year’s winner was 's Farewell, My Queen. Despite being critically acclaimed many times, 's drama is not France's Oscar entry this year because of its release date. The French award is now part of the film's growing list of critics' prizes. Blue Is The Warmest Color also has a Golden Globe nomination and an Indie Spirit nomination as well.
