The 46th César Awards, France’s top film honors, have kicked off in Paris, with Louis Garrel’s heist comedy The Innocent and the Dominik Moll-directed crime thriller The Night of the 12th to two films leading the race.

The Innocent, in which Garrel co-stars, alongside Tár actress Noemie Merlant and Roschdy Zem, picked up 11 César nominations, including for best film and best director. Moll’s The Night of the 12th, which, like The Innocent, premiered in Cannes last year, scored 10 César noms, including for best film.

Cédric Klapisch’s Rise, about a ballet dancer (Marion Barbeau) who, after an injury, seeks a new future in contemporary dance, is up for 9 Césars, as is Albert Serra’s Pacifiction, a thriller featuring Benoît Magimel as a morally-challenged Haut-Commissaire on an island in French Polynesia.

Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s dramedy Forever Young, Cedric Jimenez’s terrorism drama November, Eric Gravel’s family drama Full Time and Alice Diop’s legal thriller Saint Omer are also major contenders, with multiple nominations.

Garrel is a favorite in the race for this year’s César for best actor, for his performance in The Innocent, alongside Jean Dujardin for November, Magimel for Pacification, Vincent Macaigne for Emmanuel Mouret’s Diary of a Fleeting Affair, and Denis Ménochet for his Rainer Werner Fassbinder-inspired performance in François Ozon’s Peter von Kant.

Best actress nominees include Laure Calamy for Full Time, Juliette Binoche for her starring turn in Emmanuel Carrère’s Between Two Worlds, Virginie Efira for Alice Winocour’s Paris Memories, and Adèle Exarchopoulos for Zero Fucks Given from directors Julie Lecoustre and Emmanuel Marre.

In the running for the best foreign film are Ruben Östlund’s Triangle of Sadness, Jerzy Skolimowski’s EO, Tarik Saleh’s Cairo Conspiracy, Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s Spanish thriller The Beasts, and Lukas Dhont’s Close.

Best director nominees are Garrel for The Innocent, Moll for The Night of the 12th, Jimenez for November, Klapisch for Rise, and Serra for Pacifiction.

Se7en and The Social Network director David Fincher will receive a lifetime achievement honor at this year’s ceremony.

The French César Academy recently voted to not allow anyone who has been indicted or sentenced for acts of sexual or sexist violence to attend this year’s event, though they can still be nominated and win a César. The move came after Forever Young actor Sofiane Bennacer made the initial César shortlist in the best newcomer category. He was later dropped after it emerged he had been indicted on multiple charges of rape and violence.
