If the 2020 Caesar ceremony was mainly marked by the controversial coronation of Roman Polanski as best director, what had provoked the furious departure of the actress Adèle Haenel, Aïssa Maïga's speech had also made the buzz. During his intervention on stage, the actress denounced the lack of diversity in French cinema, but also launched an embarrassing joke on the couple formed by Vincent Cassel and Tina Kunakey. A year later, Aïssa Maïga revealed have been the target of death threats from the fascosphere on social networks in the show 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, presented by Laurent Delahousse on Sunday March 14, 2021 on France 2. "I ended up with what is called the fascosphere, with death threats, because I was finally asking for a little more justice," explained the actress. Also asked about the interview with Oprah Winfrey in which Prince Harry and Meghan Markle make explosive revelations about the British royal family, she returned to the controversy sparked by this interview:"I don't have to pass judgment on how people want to speak out publicly on these issues, it's not easy to do so, to do it is to expose yourself and I am in a good position to know it after the Caesar ceremony last year, " she declared.
Aïssa Maïga: "To speak out is to expose yourself to extremely radical people"
Like Aïssa Maïga in 2020, another actress distinguished herself during the César 2021 ceremony. In order to demand the reopening of French cultural places, which for the moment remain closed to the public because of the crisis sanitary, Corinne Masiero decided to undress. The actress thus appeared completely naked on the stage of the Olympia live on Canal +. An initiative which greatly shocked Internet users. Backstage, the Minister of Culture, Roselyne Bachelot, was notably the target of the mistress of ceremony, Marina Foïs.
