2006 Cesar Awards
The evening's hot favorite with 10 nominations, "The Beat That My Heart Skipped" scooped up the Cesars for Best Film, Best Director, Best Supporting Role for Niels Arestrup, Most Promising Actress for Linh Dan Pham, Best Screen Adaptation for Jacques Audiard and Tonino Benacquista, Best Music Written for a Film for Alexandre Desplat, Best Cinematography for Stéphane Fontaine (A.F.C.) and Best Editing for Juliette Welfling.
"This is for you, Romain. Without you it would not have been possible," declared Jacques Audiard as he dedicated his Cesar award to his leading actor, Romain Duris. In "The Beat That My Heart Skipped," Duris plays a shady property agent whose life takes a new turn thanks to his piano playing. The film has so far attracted over one million spectators in France.
Nathalie Baye was voted Best Actress for her role in "The Little Lieutenant," 23 years after receiving her first Cesar, also for a police flick, "La Balance" ("The Nark"). In her acceptance speech, the actress dedicated her award to "actresses who no longer perform, to those who wait for a phone call, who can no longer make it."
Radu Mihaileanu shared the Cesar for Best Original Screenplay with Alain-Michel Blanc, for Mihaileanu's film "Go, See, and Become" (aka "Live & Become").
