Omar Sy oscar
His big year (or is it 2 years, since this all began in 2011) continues…
After being labeled a French black cinema icon, and then winning the Lumière award (essentially the French equivalent of the Golden Globes), in the Best Actor category, our man Omar Sy later picked up a nomination for the highest acting honor in France, the César Award for Best Actor – the French equivalent of the Oscar/Academy Award).
The awards ceremony just wrapped up in Paris, and let me be one of the first Statesiders to say congrats to Mr Sy for winning the César Award for Best Actor.
I did some research, looking at the long list of all the actors who’ve won the award in that specific category (Best Actor) since they were first given out in 1976, and I determined that he’s made history, being the first black man to win that particular award. But our French readers can correct me on that if I’m incorrect, although I don’t believe I am. I looked up every single actor who’s won the award, and none of them is black… until now anyway.

Dad of four children, Omar Sy is a happy man. In an interview with the magazine “Version Femina”, he tells of his happiness: “Watching my children grow up”.
“There are no rules to be a good father, no ideal dad’s instructions,” says Omar Sy in an interview with “Version Femina” magazine . “We learn, we do with what we are.” Dad of four children, the actor of “Untouchables” is a man filled. But he was less than 25 when he had his first child, and he had to adapt, with his wife Hélène Sy: “The first times she left me alone with the baby, there were moments of panic. But we face and grow at the same rate as the child. I am not the same father with my four children, I adapt to their personality. ”
And her children are now happy: “Watching my sons and daughters grow is what fascinates me the most in life,” says Omar Sy. But paternity rhymes with responsibility: “As I became a very young dad and my wife has character, I quickly realized that to allow me to stay a child, the first thing to do was to become an adult. If I had been in denial of responsibility, reality would have caught me. It should have grown suddenly and I would not have had time to mess at all. But assuming my role as husband and father early on allows me today to have free time. ”
Free time to have fun and enjoy life. “As I did my homework, I allow myself recreation. And I have the chance to practice a trade that is a recreation. On a set, I like being a kid: flee dinosaurs in Jurassic World, have super powers in X-Men, run after Tom Hanks in Inferno … “And when he comes home, Omar Sy removes the costume of actor to put on the one of super daddy. “I read somewhere that being a daddy is making memories. When I’m gone and they think about me, I want them to have the banana and say, “He was funny this guy!” This is the legacy I hope to leave them ”
It is in Los Angeles, where he has been living for a few years, that Omar Sy lives with his lovely family. A move necessary for his career but difficult for the actor: “Everyone spoke quickly, I heard only sounds, it did not mean anything. It was a real pain, but I did violence and my wife helped me a lot. “And Omar Sy can always count on his children to help him:” Today, when there is noise or too much I still have to ask my daughters. My children speak super well. I sometimes want to gag them, so much I’m jealous! “Jealous or proud?

Omar Sy’s Hidden Hills Estate Goes Up for Sale
Location: Hidden Hills, Calif.
Price: $4.95 million
Size: 7,851 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms
A stylishly appointed mini-mansion in the celeb-favored Hidden Hills enclave in the far western suburbs of Los Angeles, owned by French-born actor and comedian Omar Sy has come for sale at a soupçon less than $5 million. The “Samba” and “Chocolat” (2016) star purchased the almost 1.25-acre spread two years ago for $3.5 million. Current marketing materials show the just over 7,800-square-foot, two-story traditional has five bedrooms and six bathrooms.
The clapboard-sided and white brick residence opens to a high-glamour, chandelier-lit double-height foyer with sweeping central staircase that’s flanked by a step-down living room with fireplace and a dining room that comfortably seats 10. The eat-in center island kitchen features top-end finishes, premium quality appliances and a roomy walk-in pantry; the family room is warmed by a fireplace; and a sound-proofed home theater is decked out with a state-of-the-art 5.1 Dolby sound system and unsightly but cushiony black leather theater recliners. Guest and family bedrooms are comfortably spacious, as is the master suite that offers a sitting area, fireplace, private balcony, walk-in closet and spa-style bathroom.
Along the rear façade, a partially covered, brick-paved terrace overlooks verdant grounds that include a swimming pool and spa bordered by raised planters, a built-in barbecue area, a sport court and a broad, park-like expanse of lawn privatized by mature trees and foliage.
The guard-gated and casually posh Hidden Hills enclave has long attracted privacy seeking showbiz luminaries. Current homeowners in the equestrian-oriented community include a gaggle of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Canadian rapper Drake, folk-rock legend Melissa Etheridge, reality-TV producer Ken Fuchs and pop superstar Miley Cyrus.
Sy, one of the many stars whose voice will be heard in the upcoming animated feature “Arctic Justice: Thunder Squad,” his wife, Hélène, and their five children reportedly maintain a modest house in a quiet, forested area near Montfort-l’Amaury in the southwestern suburbs of Paris where, he once told French Elle, he grows fruits and vegetables in a large garden.
