Jodie Foster is set to preside over the 36th Annual Cesar Awards, France’s version of the Oscars, on Feb. 25. Foster, a graduate of French-language high school Lycée Français de Los Angeles, still speaks the language fluently. She will also be in France filming Roman Polanski’s God of Carnage in early February, so she won’t have far to travel for the ceremony. The Academy Award-winning actress is the first foreign President of the Cesar awards since Italian star Marcello Mastroianni in 1993. Cesar nominees will be announced on Jan. 21 in Paris.
