LOS ANGELES, Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LOUIS XIII Cognac, the world's most esteemed spirit from the House of Remy Martin®, and the Broadcast Film Critics Association bestowed the second annual "Critics' Choice LOUIS XIII Genius Award" to Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater presented by actor Matthew McConaughey at the 19th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards ceremony. The writer-actor-director trio received the honor for demonstrating unprecedented excellence in the cinematic arts. LOUIS XIII is celebrated globally as a genius blend of superb cognacs and is committed to recognizing genius in other creative areas.
As the collaborators responsible for one of cinema's most compelling and unique romantic sagas, Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke created a trilogy that captures the passage of time and the legacy of romance. The genius of their approach to this extended love story lies in its unvarnished honesty. Nearly 20 years ago in the film "Before Sunrise," a romance ignited between two soul mates on a train to Vienna and defined a generation. In the decades that followed, that generation grew up and the complicated characters played by Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke matured right along with them. In 2004's "Before Sunset" and 2013's "Before Midnight," the conversation between the French Céline and American Jesse continued to unfold in real time – a special cinematic effect which has long fascinated Richard Linklater.
"The 'Before' films are more than a love story, they've evolved into a cinematic project about life itself, about maturing, making decisions and living with the consequences," said Joey Berlin, president of the Broadcast Film Critics Association which gives out the Critics' Choice Awards. "It is a filmmaking experiment that captures the passage of time in its own unique way. At this moment in time, Linklater, Delpy and Hawke have created a peerless trilogy. We cannot wait to see how it matures into a quadrilogy and beyond."
"We are honored to partner with the Broadcast Film Critics Association for the second time to present the Critics' Choice LOUIS XIII Genius Award," said Augustin Depardon, Global Marketing Director, LOUIS XIII. "The genius collaboration of these three creative artists bestows a legacy for future generations of filmmakers."

About LOUIS XIII de Remy Martin
LOUIS XIII Cognac was created in 1874 by the House of Remy Martin founded in 1724. It is an intricate alchemy blended from 1,200 eaux-de-vie, created from grapes grown in the chalky soils of Grande Champagne, the best growing area of the Cognac region, France. This cognac ages up to 100 years in specially crafted barrels called tiercons. Four generations of cellar masters have worked to oversee the unique blend, which evokes tasting notes and scents of myrrh, honey, immortelle, plum, honeysuckle, wood bark, leather and passion fruits, making it the most complex and most prestigious Cognac in the world.
