Guillaume Canet to Host France's Cesar Awards


The 37th awards will be broadcast live on Friday, Feb. 24 on Gallic pay TV network Canal Plus.


PARIS - The French film Academy told everyone on Friday that Tell No One director Guillaume Canet will preside over this year’s prestigious Cesar awards ceremony in February.

Canet is no stranger to France’s famed film prize ceremony. The actor turned director was nominated for a Most Promising Young Actor prize in 1998 for Pierre Jolivet’s En Plein Coeur and went on to work with top directors including Danny Boyle, Andrzej Zulawski, Claude Berri, Jerry Schatzberg and Cédric Kahn.

Canet took a turn in the director’s chair in 2003 with My Idol which earned him a nomination for Best First Film at he Cesar awards. Canet’s adaptation of Harlan Coben’s Tell No One was a critical and audience success that saw the director win the Best Director prize at the 2007 Cesar awards.

Canet’s ensemble drama Little White Lies was a box office sensation in Gaul last year. The actor has also been busy in front of the camera with roles in Alex Mann’s Last Night, Christophe Barratier’s War of the Buttons and Christian Duguay’s Jappeloup opposite Daniel Auteuil and Marina Hands.

He’ll next direct Blood Ties starring Zoe Saldana, Mark Whalberg and Marion Cotillard.

Canet has now also added father to his long list of activities since he and long-time love Cotillard had a baby boy in May.

The 37th annual Cesar Awards will be broadcast live from Paris’ Chatelet Theater on Friday, Feb. 24 on Gallic pay TV network Canal Plus.
