Bérénice Bejo has one more coveted award in her trophy collection…
The 35-year-old Argentine actress—who received an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress—picked up the best actress award at the 37th annual Cesar Awards on Friday night in Paris for her breakout role in award-winning film The Artist.
To claim the award, Bejo beat out Declaration of War’s Valerie Donzelli, Poliss stars Karin Viard and Marina Fois, Leila Bekhti for The Source, Marie Gillain for Toutes nos envies and Ariane Ascaride for her role in The Snows of Kilimanjaro.
It’s the latest award for Bejo, who steals the show in the silent, black-and-white film. The Artist star picked up a Lumiere Award at France’s version of the Golden Globes earlier this year for her role as Peppy Miller, among other awards.
In all, France’s Academy of Technical Arts and Sciences lavished six awards including French film of the year on The Artist at the awards show.
Bejo now heads to Los Angeles, where The Artist will vie for 10 Academy Awards at Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony.
