French Cinema at the 2018 Oscars®

As the 90th Academy Awards come around, a clear French presence can be seen at the 2018 Oscars®. Agnès Varda and JR's documentary Faces Places is up for an award, and two French animated short films are nominated as well. 

Alexandre Desplat has been nominated for the 9th time for The Shape of Water's original score and cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel has received his fifth Oscar nomination for The Darkest Hour.

Furthermore, three films co-produced by France (two minority-French productions and one majority production) have been nominated in the Best Foreign-Language Film category. In addition, the film Call Me by Your Name, co-produced by La Cinéfacture and sold by Memento Films International, is in the running for four Oscars!
