Behind the media uproar created by the decision to give the Donostia Award From this year’s San Sebastian Film Festival to American actor Johnny Depp, now a new name joins that coveted title. In this case it is the French interpreter Marion Cotillard who will also take home this honorary award.
A delivery that will take place on the same day of the inauguration of the appointment of this 2021, the next September, 17th, and that will take place at the opening ceremony of the 69th edition in the Kursaal Auditorium in the capital of San Sebastian.
Your award partner
Controversy has never been alien to the personal and professional life of an actor like Johnny Depp but, in this case, the decision of those responsible for this film event to give him an award in recognition of his entire career in front of the camera has not been liked to all. Especially in the case of actresses who have been clearly against after the news and denunciations of the alleged mistreatment that the Kentucky interpreter would have infringed on his former partner Amber Head.
An unpleasant situation that has caused some companies in the sector to withdraw their support for an actor who, in the words of the director of the San Sebastian Festival, is a great professional with an important career. Moreover, as he has remarked, with this honorary award rewards their trajectory in the seventh art and it has nothing to do with his behavior in his private life.
If Marion Cotillard will receive the Donostia Award on the first day of the contest, Johnny Deep’s turn will be September 22. This will not be the North American’s first attendance at the Zinemaldia since last year he was in the city presenting, as part of the team of production, the job Drinking with Shane MacGowan by Julien Temple and won the Special Jury Prize.
With this distinction, and beyond his sentimental problems, from the festival they want to remember the trajectory of a man who has been nominated three times for the Oscar Awards and has won a Golden Globe, in addition to many other important awards. In addition to his well-known acting work, Depp has also served as executive producer (as in the recent The Minamata Photographer), apart from directing shorts and the feature film The Brave.

The recognition of Cotillard
This year 2021 will be remembered by the gala interpreter as one of the best in terms of prominence in film festivals, and that is after inaugurating last July that of Cannes with the movie Annete from Leos Carax, now it is the turn of the one from San Sebastián to collect his Donostia Award. An honorary award that will serve to, among other reasons, remember the work of an actress who has won three of the great film awards (Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA) for her role as the singer Edith Piaf in the film Life in Pink.
A recognition of a passion for cinema that comes from a very young age since she was born into a family of artists. This made her debut as one of her father’s plays, Jean-Claude Cotillard, when she was very young. A precocious beginning that was consolidated in the following years with more timid roles in television series until he appeared in the film Taxi of Gérard Pirès with a job that led him to have his first nomination to the César Awards (of the six he has had in his career).
Lady of french cinema
That was her debut in a big way and since then the succession of movie roles for Marion Cotillard has only increased. Thus, he has participated in feature films such as The pretty things, Love me if you want, Big Fish (that his first job in the cinema mecca of cinema in Hollywood), Long engagement Sunday (for which he won a César for best supporting actress), A good year (by Ridley Scott) or the one already mentioned in which she acted as the famous singer Edith Piaf.
In recent years he has divided his professional career between Europe and the United States with remembered titles like Public Enemies, The Dark Knight Rises, Midnight in Paris, Allies, Of Rust and Bone or The Ghosts of Ishmael among others.
