Aaah, the Caesars.
This endless awards ceremony for French cinema.
These four hours of live.
Those endless moments of unease.
All these films of which we say ” oh hey i wanted to see it and in the end we didn’t see it at all.
All these tributes to the disappeared of which we say ” oh hey he’s dead“.
All these long monologues of technicians who thank 785 people.
THE funny sketch of the evening.
The political minute on intermittent workers.
The valves on the Minister of Culture and a plan on the embarrassed Minister in the room.
The same thing every year. And yet, here we are. So will this edition be different from the others? What should be remembered? We are nice, we summarize the evening for you.
1. A very touching tribute.
Opening the ceremony with a tribute, it was a headache.
And yet, the short introductory sequence in memory of Gaspard Ulliel was overwhelming. And necessary.
2. A great intro.
Agent De Caunes mandated to organize the Césars is the pitch.
Nothing very original but the ten guests and the references to old ceremonies, it’s effective. Just like the usual mix with real movie scenes.
And in addition, there was Reda Kateb so it was necessarily a good sketch.
3. The introductory speech.
Between Covid and the war in Ukraine, the entertainment and good humor mission was complicated for Antoine De Caunes. Who tried to keep things simple.“Let’s live up to what they don’t have” he said. Let’s admit.
Mission complicated also for Danielle Thompson, the president of this year. Who comes out of it by imitating the gestures of Jacques Chirac. Not dumb.
4. We don’t recognize anyone.
The great game of the Césars is to recognize the stars in the audience.
Well this year, it’s hardcore difficulty. But instead, we can speak ill of those who put on their masks badly.
5. Franck Gastambide was funny.
Yes, everything happens.
Last-minute replacement for a covided Carole Bouquet, the director of the infamous Taxi 5 was … funny. By taking up the speech that the actress could have made, he made it simple but effective.
Like anything, everything happens.
6. Absolute malaise.
Marie infiltrates who does the forcing to do her shitty happening: show her ass to the whole room (since there was no plan on her but an overall plan of the room, it falls completely flat) .
We liquefied on the spot. Horrible. Awful. Unforgettable.
7. The return of the king.
José Garcia who comes to fuck the evening of Antoine De Caunes with a trumpet.
It was necessary that to forget the trauma that we had just lived.
8. It’s embarrassing.
The transitions between price discounts are missed, the announcements fall flat and there’s a weird atmosphere.
WORST: The Palmashow sketch was a failure. William Legbhil’s sketch was missed.
If even they can’t…
9. Tribute to Bébél
Finally, the Caesars are never as strong as in their tribute sequences.
The video on Bébél, with the music of the ” Wonderful ” bonus.
10. Caesar by Aïssatou Diallo Sagna
In addition to being well-deserved, the César for best actress in a funny second makes us very happy because “La Fracture” is a great film.
Aïssatou Diallo Sagna’s speech was also very fair and very touching
Well done !
11. Vincent Lacoste’s Caesar.
“The text of the film was very well written from the start, so I just had to recite it. »
A great frankness from the handsome Vincent Lacoste. Who looked COMPLETELY DRUNK.
We understand it.
12. Anaïs Demoustier flirting with Adam Driver.
Frankly, we understand you Anaïs.
We would have done the same.
13. There was advertising.
Surely the funniest thing of the evening.
Yes, it was not hard ok. But still.
14. The Caesar of Honor for Cate Blanchett
One of the greatest actresses of all time.
Oscars, Golden Globes, dozens of acting awards and above all an impressive filmography.
Simply class. And not Kate “I speak French like a Spanish cow”, sorry but that’s wrong. You are perfect we said.
15. Xavier Dolan’s letter to Gaspard Ulliel.
It’s raining there, isn’t it?
16. It’s long…
It’s 12:41 a.m., Benoit Magimel is crowned best actor (lol), Valérie Lemercier is crowned best actress (we were for Virginie Efira) and Léos Carax logically wins the prize for best director for Annette.
And finally the best film: Lost Illusions
Come on, shall we go to bed?
Sorry, we fell asleep on the keyboard.
Come on, see you next year huh.
