Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin extends her warmest congratulations to Florian Zeller, Nicolas Becker and Alice Doyard, who were honoured by the Academy of Oscars at the 93rd Oscars ceremony this Sunday, April 25.

Florian Zeller won the Oscar for best screenplay adapted with Christopher Hampton for the film The father from the eponymous play of which he is the author, legitimately awarded several times. This award recognizes the on-screen translation of an intimate and disturbing epic, enhanced by the performance of Anthony Hopkins, Oscar for Best Actor. 

Nicolas Becker was awarded the Oscar for best sound for Sound of Metal, a film that retraces the trajectory of a heavy metal drummer who gradually loses his hearing. Sound is one of the characters of this film and this distinction celebrates the immense technical mastery of Nicolas Becker.

Alice Doyard, co-director and producer of the documentary Colette, with Anthony Giacchino, received the Oscar for best short documentary. This fine and sensitive memorial work follows the meeting between a young historian from the North of France and Colette Marin-Catherine, a 92-year-old resistant former who tries to trace the journey of her brother Jean-Pierre, deported to Germany at the age of 19, during the Second World War.

These prestigious international awards distinguish the excellence of French creation thanks to the generosity and talent of these creators.
