On stage also Sophia Loren and Isabella Rossellini
A triumph for Lina Wertmuller in Los Angeles at the Academy’s Governors Award for the Oscar-for-career award ceremony. The 91-year-old director, excited, has not lost her verve and irony, turning the gala into a fun happening.
Especially when he joked with Isabella Rossellini on stage provocatively in purple in front of the obviously superstitious director who made the gesture of horns several times in front of the laughing cinema community.
Chic as ever, the director opted for a total Etro look, wearing burgundy silk shirt and trousers paired with a dévoré velvet kimono and an embroidered dress in dévoré velvet in shades of black and pearl gray and black kimono in silk velvet behind.
Then on stage, surprisingly and to celebrate, Rossellini and Sophia Loren. Lina Wertmuller, who had her daughter Maria Zulima Job next to her, took the floor and ironically emphasized that “we need to change the name of this statue, because Oscar? Let’s call it a woman’s name, call her Anna”.
And down a triumph of applause.
