At a ceremony held in the lounges of the Hôtel Martinez and attended by leading figures from the world of cinema including the Délégué Général of the Festival, Thierry Frémaux, Cate Blanchett, the prestigious patroness of the Trophée Chopard 2014, officially presented their respective awards to Adèle Exarchopoulos, whose talent was revealed in Blue is the Warmest Colour directed by Abdellatif Kechiche – winner of the Cannes 2013 Palme d'or – and to Logan Lerman, one of the leading characters in Darren Aronfsky’s latest blockbuster, Noah.
After the ceremony, guests gravitated towards the Chopard Rooftop terrace on the top floor of the Martinez, to enjoy an elegant and exclusive evening.
Cannes, May 15th 2014 – Born of Caroline Scheufele’s passion for the Seventh Art, the Trophée Chopard, awarded in partnership with Variety magazine and with the support of the President of the Cannes Festival, Gilles Jacob, is intended to encourage new talents in cinema by naming them Best Young Actor and Best Young Actress of the year.
For this 14th edition, the jury was composed of Steve Gaydos, Executive Editor of Variety, actor Colin Firth, producer Harvey Weinstein, director Atom Egoyan, director and producer Lee Daniels and Caroline Scheufele, co-president of Chopard. After careful deliberation, they decided to single out French actress Adèle Exarchopoulos, whose talent was revealed in Abdellatif Kechiche’ Blue is the Warmest Colour – winner of the 2013 Palme d'or in Cannes, currently appearing in Qui vive by Marianne Tardieu; as well as American actor Logan Lerman, hero of the Percy Jackson feature film series and one of the main characters in Noah, the latest blockbuster from Darren Aronofsky.
It was with considerable emotion that the two young actors received their prizes from Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett, patroness of the 2014 edition. Created by Caroline Scheufele herself, the Trophée Chopard represents a powerful cinematic symbol: a film spool finely crafted by the skilled hands of the Chopard master-jewellers.
