(MENAFN -Arab News) PARIS: Quentin Tarantino is to attend France?s equivalent of the Oscars ? its Cesar awards ? in Paris on Friday along with actress Scarlett Johansson, organizers said

The ?Django Unchained? director will be giving an honorary Cesar to the ?Don Jon? and ?Her? actress, the awards president, Alain Terzian, told AFP late Sunday

The French event will be held just two days before the US Oscars

Neither Tarantino nor Johansson are in the running for an Academy Award statuette, though ?Her,? a movie to which Johansson lends her sultry voice, is in the Oscar Best Picture race

Tarantino won a Cesar for best foreign film back in 1995 for his hit ?Pulp Fiction? and an honorary Cesar in 2011 for all of his work

Johansson, who is engaged to a French journalist, will be recognized at the Cesars for a career in which she has already made 35 films

However she could be in for a mixed reception in the French media

Last month she went on US television to declare that Parisians lived up to their rude stereotype

She also created a stir internationally by ditching her role as ambassador for British charity Oxfam in favor of continuing with an Israeli company, SodaSteam, which runs a factory on illegally occupied Palestinian territory.
