Oscar-nominated actress Emmanuelle Riva dies at age 89

But Jennifer Lawrence won the Academy Award for best actress that year, as a young widower in "Silver Linings Playbook". Unfortunately another blow to the Oscars took place in the last 24 hours.

It was reported this morning that iconic French actress Emmanuelle Riva has died, allegedly of cancer.

Riva was best known for playing Anne Laurent in 2012's Amour, a performance that earned her a Bafta for Best Actress, as well as an Oscar nomination in the same category.

Science goes rogue: United States government agencies tackle Trump on Twitter
Another employee tweeted that while Trump can take away their Twitter, he can never take their free time, the Sky News says. NPR reached out to the self-proclaimed "unofficial resistance team" for a comment, but did not hear back.

Riva, who died in a Paris clinic after a long illness, launched her 60-year career with an early role in director Alain Resnais' acclaimed "Hiroshima Mon Amour" in 1959.

"She created intense emotion in all of the roles she embodied", Hollande added.

Riva never married or had children, but she is survived by an incredible legacy of films throughout her career. Hiroshima Monday amour, which premiered in Cannes in 1959 and received an Oscar nomination in 1961, would propel Riva into the spotlight, while Resnais - along with contemporaries Claude Chabrol, Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard - would become part of a New Wave that would change the course of movie history.

Her performances were always perceptive and piercing, with a fiery intelligence burning just under the surface, if not right on top of it, and with a distinctly French brand of beauty and class that often gave way to something darker, more disturbing and ambiguous. She worked until last summer, when she filmed the movie Alma and also performed on stage in Rome.

The actress reflected on her career at the time, saying that while she hoped to continue acting, she wouldn't be concerned if she didn't make another movie. 'If I don't act in another film, who cares?
