The film received nods in key categories, while France's Oscar submission 'Les Miserables' also received nominations in the best first film and young actor categories.

France's Oscar submission Les Miserables led the Lumiere Award nominations Tuesday, with seven including best film, best director and best screenplay for the first time director. The film topped the nomination numbers with two nods in the best new actor category.

Roman Polanski's An Officer and a Spy scored five nods amidst calls from a coalition of film industry and activists to rescind his European Film Award nominations. French feminists have called for a boycott of the film and led protests at theaters around the country after actress Valentine Monnier came forward with a new accusation of rape in newspaper Le Parisien just ahead of the film's release.

Despite the controversy, Spy received nominations for best film, best director, best screenplay, and best cinematography, as well as a best actor nod for Oscar winner Jean Dujardin.

The awards — often referred to as the Golden Globes of France — are awarded by the Lumiere Academy, which is made up of 100 journalists from 20 countries.

It also marks the first time the director of an animated film was nominated in the main category, with Jeremy Clapin getting a best director nod for I Lost My Body.

The awards will be held on Jan. 27 at the Olympia theater in Paris, and air on pay-TV channel CanalPlus.
