4th Les Magritte du Cinéma Award Winners

Today the André Delvaux Academy had their award ceremony and the top winner of the night is none other than Ernest et Célestine, an animated film that has an Oscar nomination that I wish could turn into an Oscar win but believe that other movie by Disney will please more AMPAS members, sigh.

Winners are in *BLUE. To read winners in all categories go here or official site but wait on the second as winners are not up yet.
