38th Cesar Awards: Amour crowned Best Film

Winning the top five awards, Amour (Love) was the big winner at the 2013 Cesar Awards ceremony held in Paris.

On the evening of February 22, 2013, the Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinéma (Academy of Cinema Arts and Techniques) celebrated excellence in cinema at the 38th Cesar Awards ceremony held at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. The evening was organized in collaboration with Canal+ and hosted by Jamel Debbouze.

Winner of the 2012 Palme d'Or at Cannes, Amour (Love) by Michael Haneke has collected a string of awards this season, including the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film and two BAFTA awards, for Best Foreign Film and Best Actress. Hopes are now high for the upcoming 85th Oscars ceremony to be held Sunday evening, at which it is nominated in five categories: Best Film, Best Actress for Emmanuelle Riva, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Foreign-Language Film.

Despite leading the pack with the highest number of Cesar nominations, Camille Rewinds by Noémie Lvovsky went home empty-handed. Rust & Bone scooped four awards, while Farewell My Queen received three, and What's in a Name? won two. Two films by the producer Bruno Nahon (Zadig) were also honored with awards: Louise Wimmer for Best First Film and Invisibles for Best Documentary.
