CESAR DU MEILLEUR REALISATEUR

Tentative pour imaginer les césars passés. Le gagnant suivi des 4 nommés . J'ai tenté de ne pas embellir la réalité et de tenir compte du contexte de l'époque ce qui explique par exemple l'absence d'un Jean Vigo.
Au final j'obtiens:

- 4 césars : Alain Resnais & François Truffaut

- 3 : René Clair , Marcel Carné , Claude Sautet et Roman Polanski

- 2 : Jean Cocteau , Jean Renoir , Robert Bresson , Henri-Georges Clouzot , Louis Malle , Jean-Jacques Annaud , Bertrand Tavernier , Abdellatif Kechiche et Jacques Audiard.

- 1 : Georg W Pabst , Marcel Pagnol , Jacques Feyder , Anatole Litvak , Julien Duvivier , Abel Gance , Maurice Tourneur , Jean Delannoy , Jean Grémillon , Claude Autant-Lara , Yves Allégret , Jacques Becker , René Clément , Sacha Guitry , Jacques Tati , Henri Verneuil , Jacques Demy , Jean-Luc Godard , Claude Lelouch , Luis Bunuel , Constantin Costa-Gavras , Jean-Pierre Melville , Pierre Granier-Deferre , Joseph Losey , Christian de Chalonge , Anzdrej Wajda , Ettore Scola , Claude Zidi , Michel Deville , Alain Cavalier , Bertrand Blier , Jean-Paul Rappeneau , Alain Corneau , André Téchiné , Patrice Leconte , Luc Besson , Patrice Chéreau , Tonie Marshall , Dominik Moll , Jean-Pierre Jeunet , Denys Arcand , Guillaume Canet , Jean-François Richet , Michel Hazanavicius.
