France’s Cesar Awards to Host In-Person Ceremony on March 12

The Cesar Awards, France’s highest film honors, have confirmed that the ceremony will be held on March 12, ideally as an in-person show. The 46th edition of the awards will also be broadcast live on Canal Plus. A spokesperson for the Cesar Academy told Variety that a virtual show is also being considered and a final decision on the format of the ceremony will be taken after January 20.

The event normally takes place in late February, so a mid-March date isn’t a big stretch. France has been coping with the second wave of the pandemic and theaters are due to reopen on Dec. 15 after a 90-day shutdown.

“In the face of the pandemic we’ve struggled with for months and which marked 2020, the Cesar ceremony will offer a moment of celebration and support for films, and more generally, culture,” said the French Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Taylor Swift Promises to ‘Always Advocate’ for LGBTQ Fans in Attitude Awards Speech

The singer went on to say that the only real way to make change was to get anti-discrimination policies passed in governments around the world. “Everyone should be able to live out their love story without the fear of discrimination, and the way for that to happen is for us to continue to keep pushing governments to put protections in place for members of the LGBTQ community,” she said. “I promise to always advocate for that. I’m just grateful for this amazing award.”

In 2018, Swift began to voice her political opinions with an Instagram post about the midterm elections in Tennessee, where she said she would not support Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn for the Senate due in part to her record of voting against LGBTQ equality (Blackburn won the election and became a U.S. senator for the state of Tennessee).

Then, in 2019, Swift used her music video for

Tom Holland will be at The Game Awards, probably to show off the Uncharted movie

Geoff Keighley has revealed that Tom Holland will be a presenter at The Game Awards 2020, and that could mean we’re about to get the first trailer for the Uncharted movie.

Tom Holland in the Uncharted movie

We’re just speculating here, but it’s hard to think of another reason for Holland to be involved with The Game Awards, especially since Keighley’s announcement includes a shot of Holland in his official Uncharted garb. Holland is currently filming the untitled Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel, but that probably won’t have a presence at The Game Awards. Indeed, it seems likely that Holland will have something to share about the Uncharted movie at The Game Awards 2020, and a trailer seems the most obvious candidate.

ICYMI, the Uncharted movie emerged from a decade-spanning
