Thompson on Hollywood

France's Cesar awards, much like the European Film Awards, gave a lot more credit to Paris-based filmmaker-in-exile Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer than it has received stateside, where the Academy shut out the film. But the Cesars awarded best director, editing, score and adapted screenplay to the Polanski film. Best animation went to Oscar nominee The Illusionist, directed by Sylvain Chomet. France's Oscar submission Of Gods and Men, which the Academy failed to nominate, won Best Film. Sony Pictures Classics opened the film in the U.S. today.

IndieWIRE has the full list of winners.

None of this will have any impact on the Oscars, which have been exhaustively tracked by Movieline’s Oscar Index, which has assembled an animated visual of the six-month Oscar race, below.
