'Amour,' 'Rust and Bone' divide spoils at France's Lumiere Awards
Jean-Louis Trintignant joins Emmanuelle Riva in the winners' circle
The Lumiere Awards -- in French film inustry terms, the Golden Globes to the Cesars' Oscars -- actually took place on Friday, but I missed the news in the Sundance crush. Anyway, better late than never, and you probably could have guessed anyway that Michael Haneke's "Amour" took the top prize, as well as Best Actor and Actress for Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva. It wasn't a sweep, however: Haneke was foiled by Jacques Audiard and "Rust and Bone" in both the Best Director and Best Screenplay categories. Meanwhile, I'm pleased to see a newcomer award for Ernst Umhauer, a crafty presence in one my top 10 of 2012, Francois Ozon's "In the House." Full list of winners after the jump and at The Circuit.
