The most unusual nomination is the one for Jeremy Clapin for Best Driector; I Lost My Body is an animated film! Disappointed that Francois Ozon didn’t get a nomination for Director (he is nommed for Screenplay) for By The The Grace Of God.
Interesting that Merlant got the Best Actress nomination. With seven nominations for Best Actress at the Cesars I think they will both get nommed.
There is a always a long time lag between French release dates and my seeing these movies the following year. Hoping there are some French derbyites who may have more knowledge of these films and I wonder too if there were any glaring omissions?December 8, 2019 at 9:52 am #1203223794
By the Grace of God is one of my least faves from Ozon, so there’s that. Synonyms doesn’t seem to be popular either, but I’m also not a fan, lead actor really is a revelation though.December 8, 2019 at 10:09 am #1203223834
I’m watching to see how an Officer and a Spy fares when the dust settles. Already has some impressive wins.
Could be telling. Definitely not an Oscar contender.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire missed screenplay? That’s the most praised aspect of the film and it won screenplay awards at both Cannes and European Film Awards. It did well in other big categories so this snub doesn’t make sense.December 8, 2019 at 6:42 pm #1203225374
Just watched all of the trailers for almost every film nominated – By the Grace of God was one of my favorites, Les Miserables was my least favorite. Also saw the trailer for the new Juliette Binoche film, Who You Think I Am, and am hoping she gets a Cesar nomination.
The trailer for Oh Mercy! looks very good; haven’t liked the last several Despechlin films and it looks like he is back in good form.
Looks like the Dreyfus movie, J’accuse, is a very different take than the usual biopic-type telling of the story. The production design elements look to be superb.
Marina Fois looks to be terrific in Une Intime conviction.
Looking forward to finally seeing Portrait of a Lady on Fire (:
It will be interesting to see which films will conect with the Cesars voters; there are always some films that do great at Lumieres and then get shut out at the Cesars and vice-versa! (:December 8, 2019 at 10:40 pm #1203225574
I need to watch a lot of these films, but Merlant over Haenel is a pretty big upset in my eyes.
