Cannes Palme d’Or winner Blue is the Warmest Colour (La vie d’Adele) won the prestigious Best Picture award at the French Golden Globes in Paris on Monday. The film also took Best Director prize for director Abdellatif Kechiche, Best Actress for Lea Seydoux and Best Female Newcomer award for Adèle Exarchopoulos.
Seydoux’s Prix Lumière also covered her roles in Grand Central directed by Rebecca Zlowtoski who was given a Special Jury prize.
Elsewhere Guillaume Gallienne won Best Actor for Me, Myself and Mum (Les Garcons et Guillaume a Table) as well as the award for Best First Feature. Gallienne’s film has been a surprise hit with audiences with over two million spectators since its release in France in November last year.
The ceremony, chaired by actress Carole Bouquet, also paid tribute to veteran director George Lautner and Patrice Chereau who both died last year.
