Tilda Swinton Says 'Wakanda Forever' While Accepting Award at Venice Film Festival 2020

Tilda Swinton accepts the Golden Lion Award on stage at the 2020 Venice Film Festival‘s opening ceremony on Wednesday (September 2) in Venice, Italy.

The 59-year-old Oscar-winning actress was honored for her career achievements and she gave a nod to her fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe co-star Chadwick Boseman at the end of her speech.

Tilda concluded the speech by saying, “Viva Venezia. Cinema cinema cinema. Wakanda Forever. Nothing but love.”

If you didn’t know, Tilda played The Ancient One in both Doctor Strange and Avengers: Endgame. Chadwick, who played T’Challa/Black Panther, tragically died last week after a four-year battle with colon cancer.

During her speech, Tilda also talked about the power of moviegoing.

“Cinema is my happy place, my true motherland. Its fellowship is my heart’s family tree. The names on the list of those awarded this honor, meanwhile, they are the names of my masters. They’re the elders of my tribe. The poets of the language I love above others. I sing their songs in the bath. I’m the punk kid film nut hitching a ride to the station to get to the foothills of the heights of their achievements,” she said.

Earlier in the day, Tilda paid tribute to Chadwick with another touching moment at the festival.

You can watch her full speech below.

FYI: Tilda is wearing Chanel at the opening ceremony.

Guillermo del Toro's Star-Studded Cast for 'Pinocchio' Movie at Netflix Has Been Announced!

Oscar-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is hard at work on a Pinocchio movie for Netflix and the star-studded cast has been revealed!

The new adaptation of the classic tale will be a stop-motion animated musical movie. Set during the rise of Fascism in Mussolini’s Italy, del Toro‘s Pinocchio is a story of love and disobedience as Pinocchio struggles to live up to his father’s expectations.

Newcomer Gregory Mann is playing the title role, Ewan McGregor will play Cricket, and Harry Potter‘s David Bradley is Geppetto.

Also in the cast are Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Christoph Waltz, Finn Wolfhard, John Turturro, Ron Perlman, Tim Blake Nelson, and Burn Gorman.

“After years of pursuing this dream project, I found my perfect partner in Netflix,” Guillermo said in a statement. “We have spent a long time curating a remarkable cast and crew and have been blessed by continuous support from Netflix to quietly and carefully soldier on, barely missing a beat. We all love and practice animation with great passion and believe it to be the ideal medium to retell this classic story in a completely new way.”

Guillermo is directing the movie with Fantastic Mr. Fox‘s Mark Gustafson. He wrote the script with Patrick McHale and the song lyrics with Katz, with music by Alexandre Desplat, who also is writing the score.

Tilda Swinton Hosts Special Screening of 'The Garden' at BFI Southbank in Support of Prospect Cottage!

Tilda Swinton strikes a pose ahead of a special screening of Derek Jarman‘s The Garden held during BFI Southbank on (March 12) in London, England.

The 59-year-old Oscar-winning actress hosted the screening of her 1990 film to help raise awareness of the campaign to save Prospect Cottage.

BFI Southbank’s season was programmed in partnership with the performer and filmmaker herself, and will run from 1 – 18 March 2020, celebrating the extraordinary, convention-defying career of one of cinema’s finest and most deft chameleons.

The Prospect Cottage is the former home of visionary British filmmaker and activist Derek Jarman. Tilda, who was the influential director’s muse, is part of a group of artists supporting the campaign, according to CNN.

Derek Jarman bought the black fisherman’s cottage in 1986 and created in front of it a famous garden inspired by the surrounding coastal landscape of Dungeness, in the southeast of England, also the site of two nuclear power stations. It subsequently played a key role in Jarman‘s 1990 film The Garden.

Earlier this week, Tilda signed costume designer Sandy Powell‘s signature-filled suit in support of the campaign – Find out who else did HERE!

Tilda Swinton Signs Celebrity Signature-Filled Suit Going Up for Auction!

Tilda Swinton is adding her name to a star-studded suit!

The 59-year-old Suspiria actress signed costume designer Sandy Powell‘s cream calico suit, which has been signed by more than 200 stars, including Billie Eilish, Laura Dern and Leonardo DiCaprio, at Dungeness in Kent, United Kingdom.

The suit is going to be auctioned off to raise money to save Prospect Cottage, the home and garden of the late filmmaker and LGBTQ activist, Derek Jarman.

The Art Fund charity is trying to raise £3.5 million by the end of March to protect the home, with £850,000 still to go.

Sandy attended parties with a permanent marker and her “blank canvas” suit for stars to sign.

“It ended up being much more successful and fun than I ever imagined it to be,” she said.

“A lot of people didn’t know who Derek was and they looked it up and expressed an interest,” she went on to say.

“It’s a gorgeous place. When he bought it in the mid-80s some people thought he was completely nuts. It was bleak, it was deserted, there was a power station right there … [but now] it’s filled with his work, with all the books that he read, books that he wrote and his diaries,” Sandy said of the cottage.

“Of course what we dream of is that some incredibly inspired and inspiring and enlightened rich person will buy this suit and give it to some museum. It’s really important to remember that Derek was all about process, he was not really about things,” Tilda said of the suit.

The money raised will also go to fund an artistic program of residencies.

Check out who else signed the suit in the pictures inside…
