What new rule is controversial at the César 2023?

In recent weeks, a controversy tainted the ceremony when comedian Sofiane Bennacer, revealed in The Almond Trees of Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi was indicted for rape. He was removed from the list of nominees for the César for best hope. In the process, on January 2, the César Academy made a resounding announcement: from now on, the persons implicated”for acts of violence” will be indented. In detail, the Academy specifies that if an artist appearing on the list of nominees is the subject of an indictment, he should not be invited to the ceremony and any speech “in the name of that person” would be prohibited.

A decision that many, including the author and director of the film Tickles, Andrea Bescond, find it difficult to understand. “To nominate or give a Caesar to someone who will not be there is to glorify him anyway (…) Either you have a nomination and you come to the ceremony, or you have no nomination and you don’t come to the ceremony“, she lamented on the set of LCI.
