Each year, more than 130 French film artists and technicians are nominated for the César!
The Academy is particularly keen to ensure that this nomination will allow members of the Academy who are voting for the second round as well as the general public to become better acquainted with all facets of their talents. For this, she sets up several operations.
Nota Bene :
In France, we speak of ” nommés”. It is among Anglo-Saxons that we use the term “nominee” / “nominé”
The Cinéma César Year
During the two weeks preceding the Ceremony, the Academy organizes in Paris the screening of all the films that have been the subject of at least one nomination.Each film has two sessions, awarded by lottery.
These screenings are open to members of the Academy and to the public, at the cinema Le Balzac, on the Champs-Élysées, and at 3 Luxembourg, in the Saint Germain des Prés district.
The Nominees Luncheon
The Academy brings together all the professionals who were nominated for the César at a luncheon in early February, given in their honor at the restaurant Le Fouquet’s.
