Cesar Awards Name "Timbuktu" as Best Picture of 2014 - Complete List of Winners

First given out in 1975, the César Award is the national film award of France.  Some even think of the César Award as the French equivalent of the American Academy Awards (Oscars). The nominations are selected by the members of the Académie des Arts et Techniques du Cinéma, and the award ceremony is held in Paris each February.  The name of the award comes from the late sculptor César Baldaccini, and the trophies are actual sculptures of the artist.

The winners for the 40th Cesar Awards were announced on Friday, February 20, 2015 in Paris.  Director Abderrahmane Sissako's Timbuktu won 7 Césars, including “Best Film” and “Best Director.”  Timbuktu is also one of the five films nominated for the foreign language film Oscar at the 87th Oscars.  Kristen Stewart won for “Best Supporting Actress” for Sils Maria, becoming the first American to win an acting award from the French Academy.  Sean Penn won an Honory César.
