Dany Boon despite having said he would boycott the César because “ Bienvenue chez les  Ch’tis” only received one nomination, surprised everybody by turning up at the Chatelet Theatre.
Charlotte Gainsbourg who was this year’s president and Antoine Decaune as master of Ceremony tried desperately to make the evening fun but did not quite succeed. It has to be said, Florence Foresti, has to be the Cesar for the best performance that evening.
Mesrine with 10 nominations only received three Césars in the end: for best film, best actor and best sound. Séraphine, however, wiped the board clean with 7 Césars against 8 nominations. The other big winners were I’ve loved you so long with two awards and Le premier jour du reste de ta vie with 3 Césars incl. Best male and female new comers and best editing. The Class which had been nominated for the Oscar of the best foreign film only picked up one César for best adaptation.
