Cannes 2024: Juliette Binoche accused of doing too much, the actress consoled by Meryl Streep becomes the laughing stock of journalists

This Tuesday, May 14 was a particularly special day for all fans of the seventh art. It was the opening of the 77th edition of the Cannes film festival. For the occasion, the biggest stars on the planet gathered for this great event.

During the evening, Juliette Binoche had an important mission. She was to present the Palm of Honor to Meryl Streep. And the French actress paid a beautiful tribute to the American star: “If the contributions of women in History still remain too invisible, yours are not. By helping us to laugh, to cry, to imagine and to be inspired, you have forged an indelible place in the history of movie theater. You are an international treasure“, Juliette Binoche told Meryl Streep.

Juliette Binoche criticized by Internet users

Juliette Binoche then continued her very moving speech: “What I felt watching your films again, it’s that you made your dreams come true, our dreams, And much more. You changed the way we see women in the world of cinema. You gave us a new image of ourselves”she clarified in tears.

If the actress’s speech touched many people, some Internet users found that the actress was doing too much. “Heaviness”, “She’s doing too much! This tribute to Meryl Streep makes me cringe!”, “Juliette Binoche welcoming Meryl Streep! What cinema!!! In the bad sense of the word!!! Okay, I’m skipping it!! Bye”, can we read among the reactions.

Meryl Streep touched by the actress’ tribute

Meryl Streep then spoke, very moved by Juliette Binoche’s confidences: “I am so grateful for this honor, made by this great actress, and by you. I’m at a loss for words, but this award is unique.” The actress then wanted to thank the public: “When I came to Cannes for the first time, last time 35 years ago, I already had three children, almost 40 years old, I thought my career was over. It wasn’t absurd to think that this would be the case for an actress at that time. But you didn’t get tired of me, of my face, you didn’t leave the train”, she confided.

As a reminder, the last time Meryl Streep came to Cannes, it was in 1989. She received the performance prize for A cry in the night by Fred Schepisi. The actress therefore left the 77th edition with an additional prize. This product will be able to pose next to her 3 Oscars, 8 Golden Globes and 2 Baftas
