César 2022: “Lost Illusions”, “Annette” and “Aline” favorites!

It’s almost time for the verdict for the most prestigious prizes in French cinema! In 2022, it is the film of Xavier Giannoli, Lost Illusions, which is leading the race with 15 nominations including Best Picture and Best Direction. Its main actor, Benjamin Voisindiscovered in Summer 85is nominated in the category Best Male Hope, where he already competed last year. Between now and the February 25 ceremony, the race remains open to succeed Goodbye Cons ofAlbert Dupontelwho triumphed last year with seven statuettes.

Behind the adaptation of Balzac’s great novel on the emergence of the press, the members of the Academy placed the rock opera Annette of Leos Carax in second place with 11 nominations, presented at the Cannes film festival. The film earns a Best Actor nomination for the American star Adam Driverwhich rubs shoulders in its category with Benoit Magimel, Vincent Macaigne Where Pierre Niney, but not to its main actress, Marion Cotillard.

To complete this top three, Alinethe biopic of Valerie Lemercier dedicated to Celine Dion, in which this big fan of the Quebec star gives the best of herself, wins ten nominations, including logically the best actress, alongside Léa Seydoux Where Laura Calamy, renamed after winning the title last year.

In the premier class of Best filmin addition to the three films placed at the top, the members of the Academy also acclaimed BAC North of Cedric Jimenezon police excesses in the northern districts of Marseille, The event ofAudrey Diwanadaptation of a novel byAnnie Ernaux on abortion which won the Golden Lion in Venice, the divide of Catherine Corsini on the France of the “yellow vests” as well as Onoda, 10,000 nights in the jungle ofArthur Harari.

Only one filmmaker has received the César for best director so far: Tony Marshall in 2000 for Venus Beauty (institute). Three are named this year (Valerie Lemercier, Audrey Diwan and Julia Ducournauwho won the Palme d’Or at Cannes for Titanium) for four men (Leos Carax, Cedric Jimenez, Xavier Giannoli and Arthur Harari).

For all these films, Cesars could serve as a consolation prize after a year in which French cinema was able to shine at festivals but suffered in theaters, due to the pandemic and the closure of cinemas until May.

For this 47th edition, Anthony of Caunesa regular at the exercise, will officiate as master of ceremonies and the screenwriter and director Danielle Thompson as president.
