“Roman Polanski for ‘Je suis accusé’ … er … ‘J’accuse'”, repeated the humorist, announcing the director’s name for the “best adaptation” category.
Lapsus or premeditated little sentence? As in 2016, Florence Foresti will be the master of ceremonies for the next Cesars, the 45th edition of which will take place on February 28. As such, it unveiled Wednesday, January 29 the list of nominees, alongside Alain Terzian, president of the Academy of Caesar.
While shelling the nominees for the “best adaptation” category, the humorist announced: “Roman Polanski for I am accused …” before resuming and announcing: “I accuse”. Is this a slip of the tongue or a voluntary joke? Florence Foresti said no more. Social networks immediately took over the sequence, some to salute its audacity.

I do not know what to think of the slip of Florence Foresti. In its place, I don’t know if I would have had the audacity to do so. That said, in its place, I like to believe that I would have had the audacity to slam the door by saying: “if we have to close my eyes, it will be without me …”

With twelve nominations including that of the best film and the best director, “J’accuse” by Roman Polanski tops the list of nominations for the César Awards. The film’s release last November rekindled the controversy over the respects reserved by the cinema world for the director, accused of sexual assault by several women.
“We are not an authority that must have moral positions, all films released between January 1 and December 31 are eligible”, justified Wednesday the president of the Academy of Caesar, Alain Terzian.
