Xavier Dolan's It's Only the End of the World might have missed out at the Oscars, but it landed six nominations at France's César Awards, the European country's equivalent to the little golden man. Dolan's film, which was Canada's submission for Best Foreign Language Film in this year's Academy Awards race, earned a César nom in the foreign film category, as well as two nods for Dolan in the categories of Best Director and Best Editing. The film also landed nominations for actors Gaspar Ulliel (Best Actor), Nathalie Baye (Best Supporting Actress), and Best Supporting Actor (Vincent Cassel). The film lead the total number of film nominees for this year's Canadian Screen Awards announced earlier this week.

The César nominations were led by France's Oscar bid Elle, directed by Paul Verhoeven, and Frantz, directed by François Ozon with 11 bids apiece. Oscar wild card and Golden Globe winner Isabelle Huppert is also a nominee. See the full list of nominees here.
