2003 Academy Awards: French film nominations
"I’ll Wait for the Next One," "Winged Migration" and "The Pianist" are all vying for an Oscar in 2003.
"I’ll Wait for the Next One" ("J’attendrai le suivant") by Philippe Orreindy, produced by La Boîte, is in the running for the famous statuette for Best Short Film (Live Action). Since its release on the festival circuit, the film has met with phenomenal success with audiences, and has already won awards at numerous events both in France and abroad, notably at Montreal, Bucharest, Drama, Sao Paulo and Valladolid.
Jacques Perrin, Jacques Cluzeaud and Michel Debats also have good reason to be in high spirits, since "Winged Migration" (aka "The Travelling Birds"), which won a Cesar in 2002, is competing in the Best Documentary Feature category.
Finally, "The Pianist" by Roman Polanski, a French production, has been nominated in 7 categories: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Costume Design.
We’ll have to wait until March 23 for the winners to be revealed, on the occasion of the 75th Annual Academy Awards ceremony, to be held at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.
