Jenna Ortega at the Golden Globes (or how to make it clear that you are a star with concerns)
A nomination is an opportunity. Jenna Ortega understood it perfectly when she went to the Golden Globes. It was not so much an opportunity to rub shoulders with the stars of the industry but rather to show that she fit in there naturally, standing out among the brightest talent in Hollywood, and present herself again in society after the overwhelming success of Wednesday, series for which she was nominated. And perhaps she did not win the award she aspired to, but she did capture everyone’s attention on the red carpet and surprised by her naturalness and cinephilia at the presentation of the award for best song and best soundtrack.
Jerrod Carmichael, the presenter of the ceremony, already announced it from affection: “I really adore the following presenter: she is so smart, she is so talented and she is so funny… Let’s welcome the star of Wednesday, Golden Globe nominated actress, Jenna Ortega”. Next, the actress appeared in a Gucci dress (which she has not been enthusiastic about in this newspaper) and with a haircut that set her apart from the role of Wednesday Addams for which she is now known by the mass public.
Ortega, only 20 years old, noted that Taylor Swift and Rihanna were competing for the best song award (“I’m so excited”) but then took the presentation to a more personal ground, highlighting the importance of music in film. and since his favorite compositions are those of eraserhead, Blade Runner, The social network Y Jules and Jim.

With this personal and priori insignificant comment, Ortega also seems to be positioning herself in Hollywood: she can be the fashionable girl, be linked to commercial productions such as scream Y Wednesday, but he has an interest in cinema as an art and possibly intends to be something more than an empty and fast-consuming star. And, by the way, let the French author who died in 1984 prepare for his popularity revival in the TikTok era.
Jules and Jim It can be found in the Filmin and Movistar catalogues. Starring Jeanne Moreau, it focuses on two inseparable friends who fall in love with the same woman. The director defined it as a “hymn to life and death” that he placed in the context of the First World War.
