Winslet to receive Cesar award
Kate Winslet is to receive an honorary award next month from organisers of the French equivalent of the Oscars.
The 36-year-old, next to be seen on screens in Roman Polanski's clashing-couples film Carnage, will receive the honorary Cesar at the ceremony on February 24.
France's Academy Of Cinematic Arts And Techniques has just announced nominations for the 37th Cesar Awards ceremony.
Child-protection drama Polisse led with 13 nominations, while silent, black and white film The Artist garnered 11.
France's National Cinematic Centre has said French movie theatres sold 211 million tickets last year - a 45-year high, and a 4 per cent increase from 2010.
