Selena Gomez’s breakthrough

The Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival is a breakthrough in Selena Gomez’s film career.

Selena Gomez, Zoe Saldaña, Édgar Ramírez and Karla Sofía Gascón were jointly named Best Actress at the 77th Cannes Film Festival. The work that brought them to victory was Emilia Pérez by French director Jacques Audiard .

Due to personal schedules, Gomez was not present to receive the award. Through her personal page, she expressed her happiness: “I’m extremely excited! Thank you Cannes Film Festival and the entire jury. Thank you for giving me this award.”

According to the Financial Times , Gomez worked hard for the role to speak almost entirely in Spanish. Therefore, the award for her is deserved.

The most unique role of his career

Emilia Pérez is a dramatic work, revolving around complex themes of love, fame and betrayal. The film tells the story of the escape journey of drug lord Manitas del Monte (Karla Sofía Gascón). He hires lawyer Rita Moro Castro (Zoe Saldaña) to help arrange this escape to escape crime. To erase all evidence, Manitas decided to change gender and live a new life.

Selena Gomez plays Jessi Del Monte, the criminal’s wife and mother of two children. The role requires her to portray psychological and emotional depth, portraying the tough exterior to the vulnerable soul.

Hollywood Reporter assessed that the film brings “a new, energetic and influential experience” , praising Gomez’s good performance even though the Spanish dialogue was not really accurate.

In an interview with AP, Gomez recalled his first experience acting in another language: “I’m honored to be able to participate in the movie but I’m not very satisfied with the performance in Spanish. However, overall , I hope that doesn’t hinder my performance.

For Gomez, Emilia Pérez has many differences compared to the projects she has participated in. Gomez said he spent most of his life trying to break the mold and prove his abilities. When director Jacques gave her the opportunity, she immediately took it and her efforts were widely recognized.

After receiving a 10-minute round of applause in Cannes, Emilia Pérez quickly achieved an impressive score with 88% positive reviews from 25 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. The Times called the film “a riveting musical for our times”, while Vulture wrote “Selena brings the character’s essential ambiguity”.

Some experts consider this to be the most unique role of Gomez’s film career. Writer Ali Benzekri wrote in a comment posted on Awardswatch : “Selena delivered an outstanding performance and El Camino , the soundtrack song she performed, was like a moment for her to contemplate her own role. When transforming into Jessi, Selena must find a way to overcome the pain and be ready to welcome new beginnings with Gustavo (Edgar Ramirez).”

El Camino is becoming viral on social networks and is considered a strong candidate for the Best Original Song award at the 2025 Oscars.

Currently, Gomez feels relieved because the audience focuses on discussing her acting, instead of prying into her private life. “I would rather be criticized for doing a bad job than have people pry into my personal life. I feel relieved and proud that Emilia Pérez helped me prove my passion for art,” actor expressed on Reuters.

Should focus on acting

Starting out as an actress but then deciding to become a singer, Selena Gomez caused controversy because of her poor live performance and overuse of studio techniques. And if she is not criticized for being a bad singer, she is often in the news for her personal life, relationships, and health issues.

In January, Gomez announced that she would stop singing to focus on acting and rest. The Lose You to Love Me singer said: “I feel like I’m just releasing one more album. The older I get, the more I like stability. Singing makes me tired. I don’t think of myself as a singer.” the best. I’m simply someone who likes to compose music.”

According to ABC News , Gomez’s decision was supported by the audience. Because in terms of acting, before Emilia Pérez, she didn’t have many breakthrough films, but she wasn’t criticized as much as when she sang.

Some readers on the Quora forum agree that Gomez’s film career includes S pring Breakers, The Fundamentals of Caring, A Rainy Day in New York as well as the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why are good works, proving that she acting okay.

In 2021, the television series Only Murders in the Building aired, causing a positive effect on viewers. Gomez played the main role, receiving warm love from television audiences. Her strong, personal role as Mabel Mora demonstrates her progressive acting.

According to Page Six , the work has become the impressive opening comedy series with the most views in Hulu’s history. This is the motivation for the producer to continue making part 2.

Screenrant assessed that Gomez’s strongest point is her versatility in acting. Whether taking on a main role or a cameo role, Gomez still tries to improve her acting quality. If she continues in this direction, it is expected that she will have many more good projects.
