Presenting award to Agnès Varda at the “Governors Awards”

Presenting award to Agnès Varda at the “Governors Awards”

Angelina had the honor to present and give an honary Oscar Award to the wonderful and talented French director Agnès Varda. Angie looked absolutely wonderful in her beautiful dress and she looked so happy and as you can see in video and photos below, she and Agnès took the opportunity to dance on stage!

In a recent interview with Agnès by Los Angeles Times she said that Jolie is an incredible woman:

“I know that Angelina Jolie will deliver the prize to me. She is an amazing and interesting woman. She does not just have the talent to act, but she has a position of life that makes me like her. I am very feminist, as you know and as everyone knows. The position she has in relation to women, children and her own fame … she uses it in a very interesting way. “

And here is some quotes from Angelina when she had a chat with Paris Match:

Paris Match. Why did you want to be present on Saturday evening with Agnès Varda at the presentation of her Honorary Oscar?
Angelina Jolie. First of all because she is a woman and she is the first director to be awarded honorary Oscar in history. But, Agnes, it’s even more than that, it’s not just a woman, she’s just an extraordinary person.

Why?
Because she knew by her cinema to speak about the world, and especially people, with empathy, curiosity and especially with a lot of love. When I’m with Agnes, I understand again what it’s like to be an artist. When you spend time with her, she reminds you how much you should not be in the norm, you have to look further and question the world.

She also represents the New Wave, this different way of approaching the cinema of which she was one of the inspirers …
But for me, Agnès is the new wave. In my opinion, it has brought more to the cinema than filmmakers like Godard or Truffaut. For this ceremony, Steven Spielberg moved especially for her, to tell him how much she had brought to the cinema, how that different way of doing movies had nurtured him when he was still a student. And today, when I see “Faces Villages“, her latest film she’s almost 90 years old, I think she’s the youngest and most creative of us. It is a film so poetic and light that it is almost naïve but, at the same time, it raises the question of the transmission, the ideals lost. And most importantly, Agnes knows how to film the ills of our societies like no other. She is an example of intelligence and nonconformity for all of us.
