Emmanuelle Riva Dead - Oscar-Nominated French Actress Dies at 89

Emmanuelle Riva has sadly passed away at the age of 89.

The French actress was nominated for an Academy Award for her work in the movie Amour in 2013 and the film won the award for Best Foreign Language Film. Jennifer Lawrence won the Best Actress award that year.

Emmanuelle died on Friday night (January 27) in Paris after a long battle with cancer. She worked until last summer, when she filmed the movie Alma and also performed on stage in Rome.

Riva never married or had children, but she is survived by an amazing legacy of films throughout her career. We send our condolences to all of her loved ones during this difficult time.
