2012 Soirée des Jutra (Jutra Awards for Quebec film) - winners

Tonight, the ceremony for the 14th Annual Soirée des Jutra (Jutra Awards night) for Quebec cinema took place at the Théâtre St-Denis, Montréal. The evening was hosted by Yves Pelletier and Sylvie Moreau.

Unsurprisingly, Philippe Falardeau's Oscar-nominated drama Monsieur Lazhar picked up the most awards with seven. It had led the nominations with nine. In addition to Best Film, it won for Director, Screenplay, Supporting Actress (Sophie Nélisse), Supporting Actor (Émilien Néron), Sound and Music. Furthermore, the production company micro_scope picked up the award for Film having the Most Success Outside Quebec with Denis Villeneuve's Jutra winner from last year Incendies.

Café de flore was next with three wins despite the fact it wasn't nominated for Best Film. It won for Best Actress (Vanessa Paradis), Cinematography and Art Direction. Unlike the Genie Awards where Sophie Nélisse was the only Canadian acting award-winner, Paradis was the lone foreign winner for the acting Jutras.

Much-loved Gilbert Sicotte won the Best Actor award and received a standing ovation. It was his first Jutra win despite a four-decade acting career dating back to Montréal blues in 1972.

Philippe Lesage's Ce coeur qui bat (The Heart That Beats) picked up the Best Documentary Jutra. For Animation, the Oscar-nominated Dimanche (Sunday) by Patrick Doyon claimed the prize.

The honourary Prix Jutra-Hommage 2012 was presented to acclaimed actress and director Paule Baillargeon. She was given tributes from a host of women filmmakers and received a lengthy standing ovation.
