Kristen Stewart seems desperate to be considered a "serious actress," and she's lined up a pair of projects she plans to shoot this summer that reinforce this idea to the extreme.

Oscar's French Connection

The Artist
The Weinstein Company

The unofficial theme of the 2012 awards season could be "Vive la France," with the French-helmed "The Artist" picking up dozens of awards and going into Oscar night with 10 nominations, second only to 11 nods for "Hugo."

The movie has picked up wins for director Michel Hazanavicius and leading man Jean Dujardin at the BAFTAs, Critics Choice, Directors Guild and Screen Actors Guild Awards, as well as a multitude of trophies for the film, its score, art direction, editing and costumes. It's not just picking up steam, it's a veritable awards locomotive.

Hey, at least someone wants to be in David Cronenberg's new movie!

Robert Pattinson seems doomed to never have a bride in the adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel, "Cosmopolis," as Marion Cotillard has dropped out of the project to have a baby and Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method" star Keira Knightley was... well, apparently never involved with the project at any point at all, really.

French Actor Slams French Actress; Oh, It Is ON

For the last 20 years, Gerard Depardieu has been busting his chops in a still-futile effort to become a Hollywood A-list star. Sure, he's gotten some leading roles -- hello, "Green Card" -- yet he's never managed to have quite the same success stateside as he enjoys back in his homeland of France.

But you know who has? Juliette Binoche. And boy, is Depardieu pissed about it. Get More »
