Isabelle Huppert has appeared in more than 100 film and television productions since her debut in 1971. She won the BAFTA Award for Most Promising Newcomer for The Lacemaker (1977) and the César Award for Best Actress for La Ceremonie (1995). She is the most nominated actress for the César Award, with 15 nominations. She is also one of only two women who have twice received the Volpi Cup for Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival: in 1988 for her part in Une affaire de femmes (tied with Shirley MacLaine), and in 1995 for La Cérémonie (tied with her partner in the movie, Sandrine Bonnaire). Both films were directed by Claude Chabrol. Additionally, she received a Special Lion in 2005 for her role in Gabrielle.

Isabelle Huppert est connue pour son exigence quant aux choix des films auxquels elle participe : “Je travaille uniquement avec les metteurs en scène et  les réalisateurs dont le travail me plaît”, annonce-t-elle. Elle a joué dans plus de 100 films et productions pour la télévision. Passionnée par le cinéma, elle aime également le monde du théâtre. 

Plusieurs films projetés durant “L’Or français” ont été nominés dans les plus grands festivals de films. Isabelle Huppert a remporté en 1995 à Venise le prix de meilleure actrice pour son rôle dans “La Cérémonie”, tandis que le film était nominé en même temps dans la catégorie du meilleur film.  “Loulou” de Maurice Pialat et “Sauve qui peut (la vie)” de Jean-Luc Godard ont été tout les deux nominés à Cannes en 1980.
