Some boos are heard as Adèle Haenel just walks out.

Other people are walking out, presumably the Portrait people though I can't really tell.

Claire Denis is giving Best Director, which feels pointed given the context. She's doing it with Emmanuelle Bercot, one wonders if Despentes was asked to do it and refused ?

Now it'll be very, very awkward if Polanski wins... it's a tough one to predict, Sciamma and Ly could take it, but Ozon never won and a César in 16 nominations, so...

Aaaaand Polanski wins. Did not expect that.

Emmanuelle Bercot really delaying reading that winner.
And did she suggest she might steal the award instead of giving it to Polanski?  ;D

Les misérables wins Best Picture, to Sandrine Kiberlain's delight, but unfortunately for them it might be seen as an afterthought after what just happened.

"Fun" fact: with his two wins tonight (out of three possible), Polanski now has 10 total and is tied with Jacques Audiard for people with the most César awards overall (all of which he won after the rape btw).

J'accuse won three awards, two of them were specifically Polanski's. As if the voters didn't even like the film that much (Dujardin didn't win for example, and he could have since he's never won even though it's not a particularly showy role and Roschdy Zem was also overdue) but just wanted to spite everyone who really didn't want this to happen.

Sorry for the spam, I'm done now, and pretty sad about how this whole thing turned out. I like that Haenel walked out though.

@Beavermoose: Yeah she did.

This is what Twitter was made for. Great to see the video knowing the context.

Les Mis deserved the win, hope more people get a chance to see it when it hits Amazon (think they did US distribution, but I don't really remember).

I’m surprised they didn’t give it to Ad Astra.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
