The 46th César Awards took place at L’Olympia Bruno Coquatrix in Paris on Friday, February 25. The ceremony, France’s equivalent of the Academy Awards, honored the best in French cinema from 2021. The star-studded event also featured plenty of American talent, with the likes of Adam Driver and Cate Blanchett attending the ceremony. The show was hosted by French broadcaster Antoine de Caunes, marking his 10th time as emcee.

The night’s big winners were “Annette” and “Lost Illusions.” The former, a musical from director Leos Carax starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard and featuring music by Sparks, is a rock opera about a married couple whose lives change when they have a child, which is portrayed by a marionette puppet. Carax took home the trophy for Best Director, with Ron and Russell Mael of Sparks winning Best Original Score. The film also performed well in the crafts categories, winning Best Sound, Best Editing, and Best Visual Effects.

But the highest honor of the night went to “Lost Illusions,” director Xavier Giannoli’s adaptation of the classic Balzac novel. “Lost Illusions” won Best Film, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Set Design, and Best Costume Design. Benjamin Voisin won Best Male Newcomer for his performance in the film, and Vincent Lacoste won Best Supporting Actor.
