Oscars Academy Meets to Discuss Disgraced Award Winner Harvey Weinstein's Future

13 October 2017

With Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct allegations dominating the news cycle, Samantha Bee has some profound and easy-to-follow "business advice" for men who don't want to find themselves accused of misconduct.

Revelations that the Hollywood mogul sexually harassed women for almost three decades prompted three of the company's nine board members to resign, according to The New York Times which broke the news in a bombshell report earlier this week.

An avalanche of claims of sexual harassment, assault and rape by the Hollywood heavyweight have surfaced since the publication last week of an explosive New York Times report alleging a history of abusive behavior dating back decades.

The Weinstein Company says it takes the allegations "extremely seriously" and is launching an inquiry.

Since then, the story has developed continuously, with a large number of women coming forward to claim they were sexually harassed by Weinstein - allegations he has denied.

Weinstein made his impromptu statement on his way out of his 22-year-old daughter Remy's house.

'Weinstein, according to Argento, saw the film after it was released in the USA, and apparently recognized himself.

On her Instagram account, McGowan says "there are powerful forces at work" and pleads for others to "be my voice".

Weinstein's wife Georgina Chapman announces she is leaving him and that her priority is her young children.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) have suspended Harvey Weinstein's membership, effective immediately.

In the wake of the scandal, Weinstein - who has denied numerous allegations against him - is believed to have checked into rehab, and his wife Georgina Chapman has left him, while he has also been slammed by big names in Hollywood, including Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, and Dame Judi Dench. According to People, the LAPD had responded to a "family disturbance call" at the home earlier in the day.

"Based on information referenced in published news reports the NYPD is conducting a review to determine if there are any additional complaints relating to the Harvey Weinstein matter", J. Peter Donald, of the NYPD's DCPI told the outlet. Weinstein was not there when officers arrived. It describes the allegations against Weinstein as "repugnant" and "abhorrent".

Paltrow, who would go on to win a Best Actress Oscar in 1999 for Shakespeare in Love, "feels relieved and pleased to have spoken out", said the source.
