Renault’s sixth straight year as partner of the César awards ceremony sees it pursue its long-standing relationship with the world of cinema. Indeed, its ties with the industry date back to 1899 when a Renault model first appeared in a film. That car was driven by Louis Renault himself, and the film was made by the pioneering Lumière brothers.

This year, the Ceremony was characterized by love (l'Amour), since Michael Haneke's movie, Palme d'or at the last Festival de Cannes, claimed the most prestigious César awards for Best Actress (Emmanuelle Riva), Best Actor ( Jean-Louis Trintignant), Best Director, Best Writing, and Best Film. De Rouille et d'os by Jacques Audiard, Le Prénom by Alexandre de La Patellière and Mathieu Delaporte and les Adieux à la reine by Benoît Jacquot also took several César home.

A César d'honneur was awarded to US actor Kevin Costner for his entire career. The actor even shed a tear during the event.
