Natalie Portman, Jackie – Nominee, Best Performance By An Actress, Motion Picture-Drama

To interpret the iconic Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, a historic character already brought to the screen by several actresses, Natalie Portman took her cue straight from director Pablo Larraín: “A lot of it it’s imagined”, she told us at the Venice Film Festival. “This is a fictionalized version, I mean, most of the things nobody knows what went on behind closed doors.” Portman did extensive research and, she says, she tried “to stay as true as possible to the facts”. But, she adds, “ultimately I don’t know her.” This is the fourth Golden Globe nomination for Natalie Portman; she won twice, in 2005 in the Best Supporting Actress Category for Closer and in 2011 in Best Actress/Drama for Black Swan.
