The Artist Honored Also In Its Own Country

If ever there was a a foregone conclusion it was that Michel Hazanavicius's The Artist would triumph at this year's César awards, France's equivalent of the Oscars. And it did, winning awards from the Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinéma for best film, director, actress (Berenice Bejo), production design (Laurence Bennett), cinematography (Guillaume Schiffman), and music (Ludovic Bource). The only surprise was that Jean Dujardin, who starred in the title role, did not win the best actor award. That went to Omar Sy, for his performance in the French comedy hit Untouchables . The César award for best foreign film went to Iranian director Asghar Farhadi's A Separation , which beat out a list that included such English-language films as Black Swan, Drive, The King's Speech, and Melancholia. On Sunday, it went on to win the Oscar for best foreign-language film.
