    Interestingly, The Artist was not favored to win. Dujardin didn’t. Untouchable – a massive hit in France, Avatar level – was actually thought by many to be the favorite.

    $277 million USD and second-highest grossing movie in France history adjusted for inflation.

    Unbelievable, eh?

    The Artist is poised to do what no other film has ever done – win the best film award from the industry groups in the US, UK and France.

    The Pianist came close (it won BAFTA and the Cesar), almost won the Oscar.

    What makes it so tough is that the Cesar best film can only go to a French film. The Oscar and BAFTA are the only two awards that can go to a film from any country.

    I wonder if The Artist will be more revered in France than people are speculating it will be here.

    Best Foreign film went to ‘A Separation’?   They beat ‘Hugo’ and ‘The Descedants’?  Or did the U.S. submit a different film?

    Countries don’t submit films to the Cesars or BAFTA for this category. Only the Oscars does such a stupid thing. They include all films that have opened during the year.

    The nominees this year were:


     
    2011 A Separation Iran Asghar Farhadi
    Drive United States Nicolas Winding Refn
    Incendies Canada Denis Villeneuve
    The Kid with a Bike Le gamin au vélo Belgium Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne
    The King’s Speech United Kingdom Tom Hooper
    Melancholia Denmark Lars von Trier
    Black Swan United States Darren Aronofsky

    Thank you, Scott for clearing that up.  From the looks of it, they are about six months behind U.S. films.  Perhaps next year for ‘Hugo’.

    Also, now that they have expanded the Foreign Film category to seven nominees, they have a rule that two spots must be reserved for french-language foreign films.

    Hugo was a 2011 release in France, so was just not nominated when eligible (unless they have an earlier than 12/1 deadline, which I don’t believe is the case).

    J. Edgar, based on reviews there and precedent, could well be a nominee for 2012. I believe all the 2011 Oscar BP nominees also had already opened in France last year.

    Intouchables/Untouchable, which won actor and might have swept the Cesars except for the parallel Oscar success for The Artist, has grossed nearly $300 million in France in three months, which based on population is like grossing $1.5 billion in the US, which would make it (ticket price adjusted) bigger than Titanic and much bigger than Avatar’s US success.

    Weinstein has the film for the US and is releasing it this summer. If it has any level of audience appeal here and decent reviews, I’d have to think that France would submit is as its film for 2012. (It opened after the 2011 Oscar FL deadline). After seeing the results for The Artist, and France having won the FL Oscar once in 30+ years, I’d have to think they’d go the Weinstein route. Of course, the film might be way too broad and commercial for that category.
