G&eacute ;meaux: Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge accused of penalizing documentaries

It is ultimately the documentarians who suffered from the improvised intervention of a spontaneous Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge at the Gala des prix Gemini, broadcast live Sunday evening, according to author Léa Clermont-Dion. The one we were able to follow in the documentaries You're just complaining and I salute you bitch – Misogyny in the digital age is sorry about her Facebook page, Monday morning.

According to its publication, the documentaries celebrated by the Academy could not be highlighted as they should be given that the segment devoted to Léa Clermont-Dion and Ingrid Falaise (Woman, I'm killing you) was cut short due to Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge, who took the personal initiative to interrupt the ceremony to give an impromptu three-minute speech.

“ I respect the debate, but I found it a shame because we were FINALLY highlighting the tremendous work of shadow documentarians having a real impact in Quebec society, ”wrote Léa Clermont-Dion on social networks.

A disturbing intervention

Recall that Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge went on stage without warning, asked the host of the evening, Véronique Cloutier, for a microphone and launched: “If you start your gala by saying: “I want a scandal”, you need me.”

He then urged Quebecers to vote on October 3 by saying, “We are all influencers.” Then his speech took on the appearance of settling scores. A moment that elicited mixed reactions on social networks.

Véronique Cloutier herself confirmed during the after-gala that the actor’s intervention was not planned and that the latter had even turned the rest of the ceremony upside down. The host, however, affirmed that the event had not destabilized her, implying that she had seen others.

If no other details were revealed on the impact of the intervention, we know that Jean-Philippe Wauthier had to go on stage “unexpectedly” later in the evening to present an award in replacement of another person.
