César Award Nominations: ‘Camille Redouble’ Leads With 13, ‘Amour’ Scores 10

BREAKING…Refresh for latest: Nominations for the César Awards, France’s equivalent to the Oscar, were announced this morning in Paris and, much like last year, a surprise film beat out the perceived favorites to lead the pack. Multi-hyphenate Noémie Lvovsky scored 13 nominations this morning with Camille Redouble, outperforming Michael Haneke’s awards darling Amour. Last year, Poliss – interestingly, a film also directed by a woman – had 13 nominations to The Artist‘s ten. The Gaumont-backed Camille is a romantic comedy about a fortysomething mother of a 24-year-old girl who, on a boozy present-day New Year’s Eve, time travels back to high school circa 1985. This is Lvovsky’s fifth film as a director and here she’s nominated in that category along with Original Screenplay and Best Actress mentions. The film also has a further seven acting nods. Following Camille is the multi-Oscar-nominated Amour with ten nominations including Picture, Director, Original Screenplay, Actor and Actress (for the Oscar-nommed Emmanuelle Riva). Also with ten nods is Benoît Jacquot’s Farewell, My Queen which opened the Berlin Film Festival nearly a year ago. Other films turning up in several races include two Cannes titles: Jacques Audiard’s Rust & Bone and Leos Carax’s Holy Motors along with François Ozon’s In The House and Pathé’s box office hit What’s In A Name. Ben Affleck’s Argo also picked up a nod as Best Foreign Film. The César Awards will be handed out in Paris on February 22. The full list of nominees follows: (more…)
