‘Of Gods and Men’ tops Cesar Awards

At the 36th annual Cesar Awards Friday, France’s official Oscar entry “Of Gods and Men” won three awards - Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor and Best Cinematography. Of Gods and Men, inspired by the murder of seven French monks in Algeria in 1996, had led the field ahead of the ceremony with 11 nominations.
Roman Polanski has been named best director at the Cesar awards for his political thriller The Ghost Writer. The film, released as The Ghost in the UK, won three additional prizes for its screenplay, music and editing.
US director Quentin Tarantino received an honorary Cesar at the Paris event, where Facebook drama The Social Network was crowned best foreign film. Apart from its best film award, though, it only received two other prizes – one for supporting actor Michel Lonsdale and another for its cinematography. The best actor prize went to Eric Elmosnino for his portrayal of French singer Serge Gainsbourg in a biopic named after him. His compatriot Sara Forestier was named best actress for The Names of Love, about an activist who converts political opponents to her cause by sleeping with them.
