“Best Actor” César for Gaspard!

I’m thrilled to let you know that Gaspard won the best actor award last night at the Césars for his performance in “Juste la fin du monde”. Unfortunately, he couldn’t attend the event because he is busy shooting “Eva” in the French Alps. Director Xavier Dolan received the prize for Gaspard and read out his speech:

Dolan himself earned the best director and the best editing award for “Juste la fin du monde”. Congratulations to Gaspard, Xavier Dolan, and everyone who was involved in making this film!

“La danseuse” took home the award for best costume design. Gaspard worked on this project as well in a supporting role.  Bravo à tous !
