Greta Gerwig’s ‘Barbie’ leads Hollywood’s Golden Globe Awards with maximum 9 nominations. Here comes another good news for this producer. Greta, 40, has been chosen as the president of the jury at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.

Festival authorities confirmed the matter on the Festival de Cannes website on Thursday (December 14). It is known that the 77th edition of the festival will be held from May 14 to 25 next year.

Producer-actress Greta Gerwig is very excited to be chosen as the president of the judges. He told the American media The Wrap, “I am shocked and thrilled to receive this responsibility.”

He added, ‘I love movies, like to be with movies and talk. Cannes is a festival that seems to be one of the places of world cinema. Now wait, what kind of movies are waiting for us ahead. I am impatient to sit in the dark hall room and watch all the new movies.’

Greta Gerwig has a career of only 15 years. In the meantime, he has gained worldwide recognition through Hollywood. Although he started with acting, he originally dreamed of becoming a playwright. But he became a world famous producer. Her first solo work is ‘Lady Bird’ (2017). The film was nominated for 5 Academy Awards (Oscars) including Best Director.

Greta was the first American woman director to be selected as the head of the jury at the Festival de Cannes at the age of 40. Which adds another feather to his list of accolades.

About Greta, Cannes president Iris Knobloch said, ‘Every year Cannes chooses a person for this position, who basically plays the role of the pioneer of cinema in the running time. Greta Gerwig is one such person, who is spreading stories of intelligence and human values ‚Äč‚Äčaround the world through cinema.’

Notably, Swedish director Ruben Ostlund led the judges in the competition section at the 76th edition of Cannes. This time Greta Gerwig will lead instead of him.
