PARIS (AFP) - Quentin Tarantino is to attend France's equivalent of the Oscars - its Cesar awards - in Paris on Friday along with actress Scarlett Johansson, organisers 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.
