Motion Picture Academy suddenly reconsidering expulsion of Harvey Weinstein
The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts
and Sciences (AAMPAS), organization that gives out the Academy Awards Oscars™,
is having second and third thoughts about having expelled Harvey Weinstein. The
problem: too many other members would have to be expelled if their standards
are going to be consistent. Merle Ginsburg of Page
When Hollywood’s most prestigious
organization, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) — the group
of nearly 7,000 actors, directors and other industry types who dole out the
Oscars — expelled
Harvey Weinstein on Oct. 14,audiences applauded. But by acting so swiftly,
a mere nine days after the
New York Times first reported allegations of sexual assault against
the movie producer, the outfit now finds itself facing a dilemma.
Put simply: What to do with the rest
“Harvey opened the
floodgates,” said one male Academy member. “Now the Academy’s drowning in a
tide of s—t. They don’t know what hit them.”

There are two categories of trouble
ahead. One consists of future, as yet unknown, misbehavior that can come to
light. As Gonzo Overkill points out on our home page, misbehavior – including
homosexual pedophilia among the Hollywood powerful – has been an open secret.
But equally awkward are the existing
allegations (and more) for such figures as Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski, the
latter of whom was convicted of raping a 13-year-old and avoided imprisonment
by fleeing overseas. This crime did not prevent AAMPAS from awarding him with a
Best Director Oscar (in absentia because he is a fugitive from justice over a
rape conviction) in 2003.

herself, Meryl Streep, leaped to her feet applauding the honor to a child anal
Most immediately, Casey Affleck, last
year’s Best Actor laureate, is by tradition supposed to award this year’s
Oscar™. But his own accusers have sparked
a petition to deny him the honor this year. Academy CEO Dawn Hudson and
newly elected president John Bailey have a big problem on their hands:
Hudson had no comment, but her office
reissued her original statement on the matter, which read in part: “[A]
task force will finalize procedures for handling allegations of
misconduct, assuring that we can address them fairly and expeditiously. This
process will ultimately guide the board of governors in assessing if certain
allegations warrant action regarding membership. Those procedures will be sent
to you in the new year.”
Harvey and Meryl
Mused another AMPAS member, “Dawn may
not know what they’re going to do next. That’s why the statement’s so vague.
The board says they’re going to take action, but what action? It will have to
be case by case. They must revisit and reinvent the rules of membership — and
it’s gonna get nasty.”
There are two underlying and unspoken
problems in this mess Hollywood has gotten itself into:
1. As Gonzo
Overkill visually editorialized, Hollywood knew and did nothing about not just
Weinstein and the homosexual pedophiles, but about the casting couch system
that has operated since the early days of movies. They are all complicit to one
degree or another. True accountability would involve mass career suicide.
Academy voters are 76% male and average 63 years old. They came up under the
system of sexual exploitation and few have clean hands, directly or indirectly.

President Trump, whose continuing leadership of the nation annoys Hollywood
liberals more intensely than Polanski’s conviction for anal rape of a child.
While [Sunday] night’s Golden Globe awards
officially ha[d] nothing to do with AAMPAS, the show is regarded by the public
as a precursor for the Oscars™. The level and nature of political
disparagement of the POTUS may be a tell for Hollywood’s treatment of its own.

is hope for Weinstein to be rehabbed. Superstar director Sir Ridley Scott
