2020 Lumière Awards: The complete awards list

Following a 25-year-long tradition, the Académie des Lumières, which is composed of 130 foreign press correspondents based in France (representing over 40 countries), has presented this year's awards. Les Misérables came out as big winner, honored with three trophies.

Isabelle Huppert hosted this 25th edition of the Lumière Awards ceremony, which was held at the Olympia Theater in Paris in the presence of a large number of industry figures. The Académie des Lumières, which is helmed by the American journalist Lisa Nesselson (who notably called for professionals in the industry to continue to defend the notion of cultural exception), paid a special tribute to director Costa Gavras for his contribution to raising the international profile of French cinema, and also to Roberto Benigni, winner of the Lumière Award for Best Foreign Film at the 4th annual ceremony for his film Life Is Beautiful.
