He takes over from Marina Foïs and will host the event for the tenth time.

And ten! Canal Plus officially announces that Antoine de Caunes will be the master of ceremonies for the César 2022, which will take place on Friday, February 25 at 9 p.m. Nothing unusual for the host, who has presented the César nine times in the past (its first edition dates back to 1996).

This time he will have to take over from Marina Foïs, mistress of ceremonies last year, who had been widely criticized. ” We could have made an evening more consensual, more joyful. And maybe we got too carried away by the mood of the year we had just experienced. We should have resisted more, stayed in the fun “, Recently theorized Laurent Lafitte, his co-author. ” We fought to have an orchestra, to obtain a tribute to Morricone, Piccoli, Dabadie, Carrière, to convince Huppert to hand over the best female hope. All of this is us! And no one mentioned it. We only retained Corinne Masiero naked and pee-poo valves. Everything related to our passion for cinema has been skipped “.

Two new Césars will be awarded in 2022: that of the best visual effects and that of the best documentary short film. These two Césars, like the others, will be the subject of a vote by the professionals of the trades concerned. In addition, for the sake of diversity, the membership criteria for the Académie des César have been relaxed.

The César 2022 ceremony will be broadcast live on Canal Plus.
