Controversial drama Blue Is The Warmest Colour failed to pick up any major Cesar awards at the French prizegiving on Friday.
The movie, about a lesbian couple, was considered a favourite after being nominated in eight categories including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actress, but it only picked up one gong for Best Newcomer for Adele Exarchopoulos.
The big winner of the night was for Me, Myself and Mum which picked up five awards including Best Film, Best Debut Feature, Best Actor for Guillaume Gallienne and Best Adapted Screenplay.
Best Actress was awarded to Sandrine Kiberlain for 9 Month Stretch and Roman Polanski was named Best Director for Venus In Fur.
Scarlett Johansson and her fiance Romain Douraic also attended the ceremony in Paris to pick up an Honorary Cesar award. The actress has lived in the capital since getting engaged to the French journalist. Director Quentin Tarantino presented her with the award, making her among the youngest ever recipients of the accolade.
