Today, the Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinéma announced the 107 nominations for the 2021 César Awards — celebrating the best in French cinema. While Emmanuel Mouret’s Love Affairs made the biggest impact with 13 nominations, the trio of animated feature films and quartet of stylish animated shorts are nothing to turn up one’s nez at.
The 46th César Awards ceremony will be held March 12 at the Olympia in Paris, broadcast live exclusively on Canal+.
