Cesar Noms: “The Artist” Only Third

It’s too bad that the Cesar awards — France’s version of the Oscars — don’t have any effect on the Oscar race. (Unlike Britain’s top honors, the BAFTAs, which do have a teeny effect.) Because the Cesar noms have just been announced and “The Artist” (whose star, Jean Dujardin, is pictured) only got the third highest number of noms, behind “Poliss” and “The Minister.” On the other hand, you no longer have to have the most noms to take home the top prize — at the Oscars or the Cesars. Nothing’s going to stop “The Artist.”
