Unfortunately this is NOT a post about movies but about all the women in this year's Berlinale as seems like every day in the festival has a major actress or female director in the news. This is kind of a first in major film festivals.
Think that if someone we should thank for this unusual situation -but very easy on the eye- is Festival Director, Dieter Kosslick! Thank You Very Much!
Let me show you what I mean.
BIG Warning: yes, this post is for entertainment purposes but know that many that read blog will enjoy to have in one place all theses photographs.
Post will be final next Saturday, February 14 after the awards ceremony and will be updated on a daily basis until becomes final.
Thursday, February 5th
The festival opens with Juliette Binoche and she is everywhere in social media and industry/general news.
Friday, February 6th
The second day belongs to Nicole Kidman.
Saturday, February 7th
This should have been Léa Seydoux day BUT she was in UK filming the next Bond movie, so she wasn't at all the events around her Berlinale film, Journal d'une femme de chambre. But let's share here a photo that circulated next day with Lea and Monica.
Sunday, February 8th
Sunday belongs to Natalie Portman and perhaps not surprisingly there are many excellent Portman photographs. She is outstandingly photogenic. Here two of the most beautiful.
Monday, February 9th
No doubt that today was Helen Mirren day.
Tuesday, February 10th
Tuesday is Charlotte Gainsbourg day. Yes one of my favorite actress, no matter what role she plays or who's her film's director.
Wednesday, February 11th
Could Wednesday be the exception? Yes it was. So is the perfect day to include some interesting actress and one director. Meet Laia Costa, Maja Ostaszewska and Małgorzata Szumowska.
Thursday, February 12
Today is Alba Rohrwacher day as Sworn Virgin premiered. A very interesting role for perhaps one of the most interesting contemporary young actresses in the world.
Friday, February 13
The day where we HOPE Cate Blanchett will be in Berlin! My hope became reality and strongly suggest you check the video of Cinderella press conference as by far is the best press conference in the 2015 Berlinale, that's it IF you wish to laugh hard. Fantastic.

Maybe one of the above will come back to receive the Best Actress award, but most likely will be a not so famous actress, perhaps from a South American film...
... and the winner of the Silver Bear Best Actress is great Charlotte Rampling for her performance in 45 Years! ... and yes she is a well-known actress!
