Every year since 2001, the Trophee Chopard awards two particularly promising young talents in international cinema. With this award, the Maison, in partnership with the Cannes Film Festival, makes an active contribution to the artistic promotion of the Cannes event whilst affirming its support for film creation.
This year then the winners are Elizabeth Debicki and Joe Alwyn. If you don’t know the names, Debicki was the tall, rather golden leader of the Sovereign in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Alwyn, you can see him in The Favourite. But truth be told, he’s more popular now as Taylor Swift’s current boyfriend.
Diane Kruger, the distinguished patroness of the Trophee Chopard 2018 presented the prizes. She herself won the gong in 2003 and was honoured with the Best Actress award at last year’s Cannes Film Festival.
