After the ceremony, the 2017 César party
The 42nd Caesar’s Ceremony has a lot to talk about. After the Roman Polanski scandal that left this edition without a president, the prestigious ceremony did not let itself be dismantled and saw the best of French cinema rewarded for a year still rich in creation – and diversity.
Just after her consecration at the Golden Globes, Isabelle Huppert won the César for the best actress for “Elle” thanks to her electric performance. Gaspard Ulliel won the César for best actor for his role in Xavier Dolan’s acclaimed “Just the End of the World”, which was crowned best director. But that evening, on the occasion of Albane Cleret’s unmissable “party” at the Queen, the spotlight was on the young generation of actors who did not have to be ashamed of the big names’ successes..: Niels Schneider did not miss the opportunity to celebrate his Caesar for Best Male Hope for “Black Diamond”, as did Oulaya Amamra, Best Female Hope for “Divine”, a critically acclaimed sensational film and winner of the Caesar for Best First Film.
Around the President of the Alain Terzian Academy, this 2017 Grand Cru, also composed of Ana Girardot, Vincent Lacoste and James Thiérrée, was the culmination of an evening of anthology that still predicts great days for French cinema.
