Around the Nominations
The 2019 Nominations Announcement2018
The Nominations Annoucement takes place on the occasion of the César Press Conference, traditionally given at the end of January at Le Fouquet's restaurant.
The first round of voting closed the day before, at midnight. The results are then stripped in the night by a specialized company under bailiff control. The latter hands a sealed envelope in hand to the President of the Academy during the Press Conference, in the presence of the Host of the Ceremony. Together, they then make the public read.
