Huppert accepted her award from Unifrance, the organisation that promotes French cinema worldwide, at the Ministry of Culture after returning from Los Angeles where she won the Golden Globe award for best actress for her work in Elle.

Though the film was snubbed in the best foreign-language category at this year’s Academy Awards, Huppert is nominated for best actress, notes The Hollywood Reporter.

Huppert is also nominated for a Cesar Award, the French equivalent of the Oscars. — AFP-Relaxnews
