The nominees for France’s Cesar Awards were announced today, with the highly controversial Blue is the Warmest Color snagging a nomination for Best Film. While it didn’t gain quite the same amount of notoriety overseas, Me, Myself and Mum (Les Garçons Et Guillaume, A Table!) earned the most nominations.
Me, Myself and Mum is the first film by director Guillaume Gallienne, notes Variety. It won two prizes at the cannes Film Festival, playing during the Directors’ Fortnight section and sold 2 million tickets, becoming one of the few domestic hits in France in 2013.
The film is up for 10 awards, including Best Film and Best Director.
Deadline notes that Blue Is The Warmest Color is up for Best Film, Best Actress (Lea Seydoux) and Female Newcomer (Adele Exarchopoulos). It earned a total of eight nominations. The film won the Palme D’Or at Cannes.
The movies up for Best Foreign Film are Blue Jasmine, Django Unchained, The Great Beauty, Gravity, The Broken Circle Breakdown and Dead Man Talking.
According to Express, the awards, which are presented by France’s Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, will be held on Feb. 28 with Francois Cluzet hosting.
