Christopher Nolan will also receive an Honorary César

Its shelf is already buckling under the weight of the multiple Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards received since the start of the year. Not to mention the Oscars and the British Bafta trophies which will undoubtedly fill his collection. But Christopher Nolan will also have to make room for an honorary César. The director of Oppenheimer and Interstellar will receive a compression on February 23 on the Olympia stage.

And if Oppenheimer is ever selected in the best foreign film category, Christopher Nolan could even leave with a second compression under his arm. “His latest masterpiece, Oppenheimer, a true global phenomenon, was acclaimed by critics and audiences for its revolutionary visual aesthetic. He knows how to transcend the boundaries of space and time. The release of each of his works is the subject of a real event. Since his debut with Following, Christopher Nolan has had a passion and an unwavering commitment to the cinematic experience in theaters and continually pushes the limits of storytelling,” underlined the Académie des César, which has succeeded in a big way.

Christopher Nolan, whose biopic of the creator of the atomic bomb brought audiences back to theaters, is in pole position in the race for the Oscars, which will announce their nominations on Tuesday. Despite the critical and public success of these frescoes, from Inception to Dunkirk via the Batman The Dark Knight trilogy, the 53-year-old American-British filmmaker has never won an Oscar. Oppenheimer's aura finally gives him hope of victory on March 10.

In addition to Christopher Nolan, the Académie des César will take advantage of this 49th ceremony to honor the French actress Agnès Jaoui. “It was in the theater, in 1987, that her career really took off and was forever marked: there she met a certain Jean -Pierre Bacri. A true creative fusion is taking place between them, giving birth to numerous successful plays and films,” noted the Académie des César in another press release this morning. “They were one of the most famous couples in cinema and will remain close until Bacri's death in 2021. Agnès Jaoui is the female artist most awarded the César, with six statuettes,” recalled the text. She will still be showing on Wednesday in a comedy, The Last of the Jews. Committed, she spoke out in 2020 against sexism and misogyny, recounting abuse suffered in her childhood.

The César nominations must be revealed next Wednesday. The film “Anatomy of a Fall”, which won the Palme d’Or in May, is the favorite. The fantastic phenomenon The Animal Kingdom and The Goldman Trial should also be full of quotes. Members of the Academy will have one month to vote, before the ceremony is held on February 23 at the Olympia, chaired by Valérie Lemercier. The Caesar evening, often the occasion for political or social demands, will also be a baptism of fire for the new Minister of Culture Rachida Dati.
