Last night was the biggest French cinema night of the year with the César Awards ceremony honoring great movies. Among the many honors, two went to the most promising actors or a more literal translation, the revelations; as predicted by most cinema pundits -and expected by me- Rod Paradot won the male revelation for his outstanding work in La Tête haute; then in contrast, his female counterpart was not that easy to predict.
The Most Promising Actress award went to Zita Hanrot in Fatima and as we already know film got three awards but most important, got the top award.
Have to comment that from all of last night acceptance speeches, none was as emotional as Rod Paradot speech that moved me and many more that poured to comment the most positive emotions for his future in twitter. Check Paradot's acceptance speech in the following video.
Winners are in (*)GREEN.
Earlier this morning the Academy announced the nominations for the #César2016 and below are the ten actors that are honored with a nomination.
There are not many surprises but believe that Sophie Verbeeck deserved at least a nomination but perhaps she lost because the unfortunate singing scene (lol). Nevertheless she gave a great performance in A trois on y va as she has very little to say and lots of silences that say all. Sigh.
Nominees are in *BLUE.
After the horrifying news that come from Paris since last Friday, a brief warm air came today with the announcement of the thirty-two (32) actors that were selected by the Academy as the Newcomers Selection.
Now the 4276 French Academy members will vote to select the nominees in the 2016 César Awards Best Female Newcomer and Best Male Newcomer categories.
