Returning to the Academy, director Lara Fabian had to evaluate the decision she made with Gregory Charles and Gillen Tremblay.

The problem is that when you’re up against two exceptional people, you really have to adjust the line on the scalpel. And tonight, when this song embodied, for all that it embodied … the choice was made that way,” explained Lara during her autopsy.

It is a blessing that I touched this evening, and she really deserves to be saved,” continues the director.
