Follow the 47th Cesar ceremony live

The high mass of French cinema begins tonight at 9 p.m. at the Olympia. And wants to forget the hiccups of the last two years. With 15 nominations, lost illusions by Xavier Giannoli is the favorite.

Double mission (impossible?) this year for the Césars. Commit a flawless on the prize list and on stage for a ceremony without controversy after two editions marked by the rebellion of Adèle Haenel against Roman Polanski and the bloody striptease of Corinne Masiero. The militant stances of the great family of French cinema may have gone around the world but were not to the liking of the spectators – only 1.6 million faithful –, of the milieu or of the broadcaster and partner of the gala , Canal+.

The 47th César evening begins this evening at 9 p.m. at the Olympia and on Canal +, under the aegis of Antoine de Caunes. The animator is a master of ceremonies experienced in the thankless exercise of room steward in this long tunnel of more than three hours of rewards and more or less inspired speeches. This will be his tenth ceremonial presentation. With 15 nominations, the reinterpretation of Balzac’s classic by Xavier Giannoli lost illusions is a favourite. Corn Annette Léos Carax’s rock opera (11 quotes) and AlineValérie Lemercier’s love letter to Celine Dion (10 quotes) are in ambush.

Awarded to Hollywood stars, the Honorary Cesar will be given to Australian actress Cate Blanchett by Isabelle Huppert. Can we imagine the Australian actress at the two Oscars, sublime femme fatale in Nightmare Alley of Guillermo del Toro, contemplate without flinching or shuddering a sketch based on dog poop like the one proposed last year by Marina Foïs, conductor of an evening without panache and without class? It will also be necessary to pay a tribute to the height of the disappeared of the year in the forefront of which, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Gaspard Ulliel.

Call for calm in the direction of the presenters and the winners

The watchword which circulates under the coat of the guests is besides “be happy and warm, stop bitching. Take it easy.” In “C à vous”, on France 5, Pierre Lescure, patron of the Cannes Film Festival, insists: “No useless hubbub, we must celebrate the cinema as a joyful signal and run back to it.” After two years of health crisis where the State and the CNC have always responded in terms of subsidies, the jeremiads of the seventh art are going more and more badly.

For the prize list, the members of the Academy can draw from a vintage splendor with the double palme d’or and lion d’or. The jurors of the Cannes and Venice festivals crowned the dystopian and bodied fable respectively Titanium by Julia Ducournau and the engaging story of a clandestine abortion in De Gaulle’s France The Event by Audrey Diwan. These two feature films, which total four nominations each, greatly feminize the best director category. The opportunity to write the history of cinema by crowning, for the second time only, a best female director (the first was Tony Marshall), is therefore within reach of the ballot.

Bursting the screen dans Annette by Leos Carax, the American star Adam Driver is in the running for the César for best actor alongside Benoît Magimel (the favorite), Vincent Macaigne and Pierre Niney. Fleeing the spotlight, the star of the new trilogy Star Wars still made the trip to Paris. On the actress side, Valérie Lemercier, who portrays her idol Céline Dion from 14 to 50 years old in Alinewill overshadow Léa Seydoux or Laure Calamy, again named after winning the title last year.

In the queen category of “best film”, Lost Illusions, Annette and Aline will try to keep the whodunnit at a distance BAC North by Cédric Jimenez, on police excesses in the northern districts of Marseille, The Event d’Audrey Diwan, The divide of Catherine Corsini on the France of the yellow vests as well as Onoda, 10,000 nights in the jungle by Arthur Harari. A little thumb that could derail the forecasts. Discovered at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes, this story about a Japanese soldier hidden in the jungle for thirty years, refusing Japanese capitulation at the end of the Second World War, has won four César nominations and has already won over several juries. He received the Critics’ Syndicate Prize and the Louis-Delluc Prize. The Lights awarded by the international press, which are a bit to the Césars what the Golden Globes are to the Ocars, have for their part been extolled The Event. The games are therefore very open.
