Paul Verhoeven’s Elle, Albert Serra’s The Death of Louis XIV, Alain Guiraudie’s Staying Vertical and Stephane Brize’s surprise Louis Delluc Prize-winner A Woman’s Life lead this year’s Lumiere nominations with four nominations each in the main categories.
All are in the running for best film and best director, with additional mentions in the acting categories.
Stephanie di Giusto’s The Dancer also scored four nominations in various acting and cinematography categories as well as a best first film nom, while Bertrand Bonello’s terrorism drama Nocturama and Lea Fehner’s acting troupe comedy Les Ogres scored three each.
Divines, which was nominated for a Golden Globe in the best foreign-language category, was recognized here in the best first film category, as director Houda Benyamina’s first feature. She won the Camera d'Or in Cannes for the film.
The Golden Globe-nominated animated feature My Life as a Zucchini also was nominated in that category here, which is a new addition to the awards roster.
The best animated film will be awarded for the first time this year after the academy added best music and documentary categories at last year's ceremony.
While the awards — often referred to as the Golden Globes of France — were founded in 1995, they have been growing quickly both in scope and prestige in the last few years.
The Lumiere Academy is made up of 100 journalists from 20 countries.
The awards will be held on Jan. 30 at the Madeline Theater in Paris.
The following is a complete list of the nominations:
