Three animation awards for Jérémy Clapin's I Lost My Body and The Night of the Plastic Bags by Gabriel Heral at the Césars 2020.

The Oscar-nominated I Lost My Body by Jérémy Clapin was the big winner at Césars 2020. The lyrical 3D film by the French director (production: Xilam Animation) won over the The Swallows of Kabul and The Famous Invasion of Sicily. 

The film also received the Best Soundtrack Award for the music of Dan Lévy.

In the short film category, the winner was the environmental thriller The Night of the Plastic Bags by Gabriel Heral (production: Kazak productions).

Agathe, 39, has but one obsession: to have a child. She finds her ex, Marc-Antoine, a DJ, mixing techno in Marseille. As she tries to talk to him into getting back together, plastic bags come to life and attack the city.

The film premiered at 2018 Cannes film festival (Directors Fortnight), and it is the second film from the director (first film: Yul and the Snake), who graduated from La Poudrière animation school in 2007.
