; furthermore, we should note that three female directors are vying for the top prize this year.

Two former winners are among the seven hopefuls for the Best Actress Award: Catherine Deneuve (crowned in 1981 and 1992, and nominated for the 13th time) has a nod for Standing Tall, while Isabelle Huppert (who won in 1996 and is now nominated for the 15th time) has been selected for Valley of Love [+see also:

) and Soria Zeroual (Fatima).

Meanwhile, the Best Actor Award will be fought over by two former winners: Gérard Depardieu (who has won it twice, in 1981 and 1991, and who has been nominated for the 17th time) is in the running with Valley of Love, and Vincent Cassel (who won in 2009) is being considered for Mon roi. Five actors who have not yet pocketed the trophy will go head to head with Depardieu and Cassel: Jean-Pierre Bacri (The Very Private Life of Mister Sim [+see also:
