The decima. Antoine de Caunes will be the master of ceremonies for the Césars for the tenth time. An evening which will be organized this Friday, February 25 at the Olympia and for which the presenter has already planned some nice surprises. And to help him in his task, he surrounded himself with a “small band” of comedians and authors. “There is Bertrand Delaire, artistic director at Canal + with whom I have worked for a long time and who was also the author of After-sales service for Omar and Fred’s broadcasts. He works in tandem with Martin Darondeau, who did Martin and Cordy”, said indicated Antoine de Caunes.
But these are not the only people who will support the former sidekick of José Garcia. “In the team, there is also Marina Rollman, a Swiss humorist whom I adore and who has an extraordinary pen, Charline Roux who is a bit like my right arm on the radio who is a fan of ceremonies, and the scriptwriter Thomas Bidegain, with whom I had already worked on previous ceremonies, “he continued. Colleagues who sometimes have to calm down Antoine de Caunes a little, who never lack original ideas to animate the ceremony.
Antoine de Caunes: “I had to give up, with death in my soul, this idea”
“They are always wary of my c*n ideas!”, he confided to our colleagues. In 2011, Antoine de Caunes, for example, brought a seal (fuck) on stage to pay a hilarious tribute to Quentin Tarantino, winner of an Honorary Cesar that evening. And for this 2022 edition, the master of ceremonies had thought of even more imposing animals: cows. “My biggest regret is that the Césars often correspond to the agricultural show, so I wanted to make a big common picture with the award-winning Charolais and the Césarized actors, and to make “culture and agriculture finally reunited on the same stage “. I was objected that it was not possible, that the plateau was going to give way under the weight of the Charolais, and that it was going to be an absolute disaster. So I had to give up, with a heavy heart, to this idea”, lamented Antoine de Caunes, who has a weakness for the animal species. “I like to bring animals, but each time, I am told that it will not be possible, I am frustrated. It is true that animals, you have to be wary of them, you never know !”, he admitted all the same.
