A film about the Dreyfus affair in the 19th century France, An Officer and A Spy, has received as many as twelve nominations.
The award winning director is a rape convict. He was convicted of the statutory rape of a minor in the year 1977. He fled the United States after the conviction.
As many as seven actresses in total have walked out of the award function as soon as the controversial director has been declared as the best director.
Actress Adele Haenel is one of them. Though some have tried to convince them not to leave the function, they have remained adamant in their decision.
