In the Foreign Language department it was time to sing the Marseillaise as two French and one French/Iranian co-production secured nominations berths. Celine Sciamma’s tale of banlieu girlhood and hard knocks got a nod as well as Paul Verhoeven’s Elle starring standout Isabelle Huppert. The veteran French actress also received a nomination as one of the year’s best Drama Actresses, alongside Amy Adams (Arrival), Jessica Chastain (Miss Sloane), Ruth Negga (Loving) and Natalie Portman (Jackie). Rounding out the international category were Asghar Farhadi’s The Salesman which continued the Globe winning director’s (A Separation) streak, Maren Ade’s German Cannes favorite Toni Erdmann and Neruda from Chile’s Pablo Larrain.
