The 46th Cesar ceremony, broadcast unencrypted Friday, March 12, 2021, on Canal +, gathered 1.6 million viewers (9.1% audience share), one of its worst scores, according to figures from Médiamétrie. The big concern of the evening was the health crisis, and the stage served on several occasions as a platform to cry out the despair of the world of culture. “No culture, no future” on the stomach, “give us back the art, Jean” on the back: an impression by removing a skin suit from Bloody donkey, finding himself completely naked on the stage to present the prize for the best costume.
On Saturday, a quick tour of social networks and the media made it possible to understand the damage’s extent. The historian Jean Garrigues, in particular, considered that the evening had reached the “height of ridicule” during the intervention of Corinne Masiero. “As if Castex had ‘stolen’ the culture! !! But how can you be so stupid … or dishonest? He stormed on Twitter. On RTL, Gérard Jugnot, for his part, lamented the lack of “lightness” of the ceremony. “We are indeed suffering, but we are not the only ones. We should not make people believe that it is only the artists who suffer, “said the actor, according to whom” it is not all the fault of the government if there is a virus’ in the country.
