Nominated for 11 Cesar Awards categories, acclaimed biopic drama "" didn't managed to make clean sweep at the winner announcement ceremony held on Friday, February 22 at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris. Though able to bring home most of the awards given out that night, the Oliver Dahan-directed film only won five awards from the overall twenty prizes.
What made it even more disappointing, the film based on the life of French singer Edith Piaf has to let go the top prize of Best Film as well as the kudo for Best Director to its contender "The Secret of the Grain". Still, the film got its consolation prize when its leading actress who is also up for the 80th Academy Award - Best Actress nailed the coveted Best Actress kudo. Further, aside from getting the Best Actress award, the Picturehouse Entertainment's film also brought home four other prizes, that is, Best Sound, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design.
