The film Emilia Pérez won a double award with the Jury award and the collective award for Best Actress. Among them, Selena Gomez is the name that excites the audience the most. She plays the wife of a drug lord.

Co-stars who shared the Best Actress award were Karla Sofia Gascón, Zoe Saldana and Adriana Paz.

Top names but still underrated talent

At age 31, Selena Gomez has an incredibly long entertainment career: 22 years. She was once Disney’s top child star, nicknamed “the little witch” thanks to her famous role in Wizards of Waverly Place.

When she was growing up, Selena Gomez was one of the young stars loved by American and world audiences. Her Instagram account has been ranked among the top with the most followers in the world for many consecutive years.

Selena Gomez is seductive on the Cannes beach

Selena is active in both music and movies, but in later years music was more dominant when she had many hits such as Calm Down, Good For You, Same Old Love, Lose You to Love Me, Come & Get it, It Ain ‘t Me, We Don’t Talk Anymore (duet with Charlie Puth)…

Selena’s songs all have unique, catchy and addictive melodies, very familiar in Vietnam. 

She always has successful collaborations with other producers, DJs and singers.

But what Selena lacks is recognition for her singing talent and big, classy tours.

Her voice, although very popular and charming, is not excellent. The ability to sing live has many times caused controversy and was criticized as weak.

The song Lose You to Love Me (2019) is the most famous in her career, but is also said to be inspired by her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber – a love affair that has attracted a lot of discussion over the years despite Justin got married in 2018.

In 2021, Selena Gomez announced that she would retire from music after her fourth album.

In early 2024, when Selena confirmed her feelings for Benny Blanco – her first boyfriend in the past 5 years, he was also emphasized as a music producer who has collaborated with Justin Bieber.

This shows that until recently, every activity of Selena was easily dissected as if it had something to do with Justin Bieber, even though they were far apart in life.

Eliminate stereotypes about Selena Gomez

With movies, Selena Gomez’s role as an actress has recently stepped back to make room for the position of production director.

She invested in successful film projects such as 13 Reasons Why , Only Murders in the Building but also had some not so outstanding films, before returning as an actress in Emilia Pérez.

Before that, Selena’s name was not associated with art films at film festivals – let alone a film competing for the Palme d’Or.

The film received a 9-minute applause when it screened in Cannes, bringing the cast to tears. As for Selena Gomez, she said she devoted herself wholeheartedly to winning this role.

She told Hollywood Reporter : “I’m very confused because this project is completely different from what I’ve done before. Even though my role is small, this is a really big and special project. I feel very lucky that is part of the movie”.

When casting, Selena said she devoted herself and acted crazily at the director’s request. She wanted to make sure she gave it her all whether she was chosen or not.

The role in Emilia Pérez helped Selena Gomez escape stereotypes about her.

“I’ve spent most of my life trying to break stereotypes and people’s perceptions of me,” she said.

Director Jacques Audiard, who really knew nothing about me, took a chance and trusted me simply based on what I could do. That’s really special for me.”

Selena Gomez did not attend the closing ceremony of the 2024 Cannes Film Festival to receive the award in person. She is in America and heard the news online.

She posted the happy moment of winning the award on the story of her Instagram account with 427 million followers, and shared her joy with co-star Zoe Saldana.
