Review: Darkest Hour (2018)

As awards season gets underway it is that time of year where Drama reigns, historical figures are brought to big screens and Meryl Streep gets prepared to embarrassingly look away when the host makes a crack or two about her being nominated yearly because she is so brilliant. It seems that with every awards season you get a lot of fresh and emerging talents trying to break into the Hollywood hierarchy but every so often you get some long overdue recognition of a great (see Michael Keaton for Birdman). Throughout history many superb actors never received big awards – especially Oscars – and some were not even nominated…until 2012 this was the case for the excellent Gary Oldman. Known for his range and commitment, Oldman has missed out on Oscar acknowledgement for years until being nominated for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Little gold awards, of course, ultimately means nothing next to the power of a fantastic performance,

Charmed star Rose McGowan stirred up controversy over the weekend with a tweet that implied Meryl Streep is guilty of covering for disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein. McGowan claimed that Streep and other actresses had been silent while Weinstein embarked on a decades-long program of sexual harassment and assault. Streep denied the implications on Monday, claiming that she never knew what Weinstein was doing to other women.

McGowan denies that she accused Streep of knowing about the abuse, although it's not clear what she was accusing Streep of being "silent" about if that's the case. McGowan apparently later deleted the controversial tweet.

Meryl Streep to Rose McGowan: 'I did not know about Weinstein's crimes'

’We are both, together with all the women in our business, standing in defiance of the same implacable foe.’

Meryl Streep has responded to Rose McGowan’s weekend tweet accusing her of hypocrisy for planning to wear black to the Golden Globes in protest over sexual harassment, claiming, “I did not know about Weinstein’s crimes.”

McGowan said the silence of Streep and others who “happily worked for The Pig Monster [Harvey Weinstein]” was the problem. McGowan has claimed Weinstein raped her. Others have come forward with the same allegation and Weinstein has “unequivocally” denied any non-consensual sex.

Harvey Weinstein Kicked Out of Academy Following Sexual Abuse Allegations

Harvey Weinstein Kicked Out of Academy Following Sexual Abuse Allegations
Harvey Weinstein, one of the most prolific modern Oscar influencers, has been ousted from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

“The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Board of Governors met today to discuss the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, and has voted well in excess of the required two-thirds majority to immediately expel him from the Academy,” the organization said in a statement on Saturday. “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that

Academy Governors Debate Revoking Harvey Weinstein’s Membership — Exclusive

Academy Governors Debate Revoking Harvey Weinstein’s Membership — Exclusive
Two Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences governors told me that Academy board members are discussing whether Harvey Weinstein should continue as a member. An impromptu board meeting is expected sometime this week. It’s worth noting that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences board of governors is now one-third female, with members who include Whoopi Goldberg, Kimberly Peirce, and Christina Kounelias.

This would be a stunning reversal: By the count of The Weinstein Company’s website, his companies earned 303 Oscar nominations and 75 wins over three decades. Harvey could be the butt of Oscar jokes, but historically was the second most-thanked person in acceptance speeches, after Steven Spielberg.

The Fall of Harvey Weinstein: From Indie Powerhouse to Hollywood Pariah

The Fall of Harvey Weinstein: From Indie Powerhouse to Hollywood Pariah
Over the course of five days, Harvey Weinstein went from a powerhouse player to a Hollywood pariah. His career is in tatters, and the company he co-founded has been wrested from his control following the Oct. 5 publication of a New York Times exposé featuring multiple on-the-record interviews with women accusing him of sexual harassment that occurred over three decades.

Arguably, no one did more to shape the world of indie film in the 1990s and early aughts than Weinstein. With a combination of sterling creative taste and a pugilist’s instinct for going for the jugular, he helped push edgy or emotionally potent films such as “The Crying Game,” “Pulp Fiction” and “The King’s Speech” into the mainstream, while fashioning himself into a mogul. That legacy has been tarnished. Weinstein now sits in ignominious company alongside Bill O’Reilly, Roger Ailes, L.A. Reid and Bill Cosby — a symbol of a casting couch culture that is being
