The “Teen Spirit” actress opened up about her role at this year’s event. “I feel proud to represent a young voice,” she said at a panel Q&A on Tuesday. Fanning’s stock has gone up ever since she received a Critics’ Choice award nomination for “20th Century Women” and Critics’ Choice and Screen Actors’ Guild award nominations for “Trumbo”.

President Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is a juror, along with actress Maimouna N’Diaye, Oscar-nominated filmmakers Yorgos Lanthimos, and Paweł Pawlikowski. Other jurors include Helmers Kelly Reichardt, Alice Rohrwacher, Robin Campillo and Enki Bilal.
