In recent years, the honorary Cesar has been awarded to such Hollywood stars as Dustin Hoffman, Kate Winslet and last year’s Kevin Costner.  The 29-year old star could be the youngest star to receive this award.

The Cesar ceremony will take place on Feb. 24 in Paris.

    Why? Isn’t this an honour bestowed to actors with a lengthy career? She only got off the ground 10 years ago.

  2. Grissom says:

    Eh, she’s not the greatest actress, but it’s nice to see young stars get awards like this.

  3. Capitals cs Penguins says:

    And the Cesar Awards have lost their credibility.

  4. Ret says:

    FFS. She is just a buzzkill in every film. You’re having fun, then ScarJo failing at acting just ruins it.

  5. Valerie says:

    It’s a real shame when we live in a world where hacks like ScarJo gets these awards and truly talented actresses (ones that don’t rely on the sizes of their breasts to get roles) are snubbed.

      She hasn’t been riding off the success of LiT for her career. She won a Tony in 2010. Last year, she had 3 critically acclaimed performances (Her, Don Jon and Under the Skin), each completely different roles. Her work in ‘Her’ was universally acclaimed for its emotional depth & range, thus proving she doesn’t need to rely on looks. If anything, she’s eclipsed her work in Lost in Translation.

      (Nice aliases, btw)

    • Valerie says:

      If talented to you means “i’ll sound super bored in every movie”, then by all means, give her a prize. But she isn’t talented. She’s been riding off the success of Lost in Translation her whole career. And trust me, her breasts are what sign her movie contracts, cause no one in their right mind would stick Scarlett Johansson in a film like The Prestige or Iron Man 2 without her cups.

  6. Dean says:

    I thought people with talent were awarded this prize.

  7. Wyatt says:

    Why are they rewarding such a mediocre actress? Awards like that should go to Amy Adams or someone with talent.
