“It’s going to burn all the candles in France”: Raphaël Quenard blows up the counters at the Césars

“It’s going to burn all the candles in France”: Raphaël Quenard blows up the counters at the Césars

The star of Yannick and Junkyard Dog is nominated three times, including the Césars for best actor and male breakthrough. An unprecedented combo in the history of the ceremony.

Could Raphaël Quenard leave the 2024 César with three prizes? After a very busy year (Yannick, Dog of the breakage, Sentinel on Prime Video, Cash on Netflix…) where he became known to the general public, the actor was nominated three times for the 49th ceremony, which will take place on February 23 at the Olympia and will be presented by Valérie Lemercier. Possibly unique combo – we have not found an equivalent – Quenard competes both in the “best actor” categories for Yannick by Quentin Dupieux, “masculine revelation” for Dog of the breakage by Jean-Baptiste Durand as well as “best documentary short film” (with Hugo David) for The Actor or the surprising virtue of incomprehension (of which we told you the greatest good here).

Thank you to the voters of the Académie des César, you delight my word », reacted on his Instagram account the actor with his usual verve. “ And thousands of thanks also to all the people who contributed to the making of Yannick, Dog of the breakage And The Actor or the surprising virtue of incomprehension, it was a blessing to make this all together. It’s going to burn all the candles in France. »

Raphaël Quenard is the first to be nominated at the same time for the best actor and male breakthrough awards by playing in two different films. Remember that in 2010, Tahar Rahim left with these two Caesars for A prophet by Jacques Audiard. And if a modification of the Academy’s regulations dating from 2016 should theoretically prevent Quenard from doing the same, it only concerns those who compete for the same role. As he is named both for his services in Yannick And Dog of the breakageit is therefore not concerned.

Do the voters have enough “quenardos” to give him a historic double (or even a triple)? We will have to burn a candle: the actor will face Romain Duris, Benjamin Lavernhe, Melvil Poupaud, Arieh Worthalter, Julien Frison, Paul Kircher, Samuel Kircher and Milo Machado Graner.
