Harvey Weinstein Accuser Rose McGowan Doesn't Believe He'll 'Ever Be Prosecuted for Any Rapes'
Rose McGowan believes that the man she accused of rape, Harvey Weinstein, will never face time behind bars — period.

“I don’t think Harvey Weinstein will ever be prosecuted for any rapes,” the actress and activist told Good Morning Britain on Wednesday.

“You have to understand the judicial system is completely stacked against victims in any way, shape or form, in that most people cannot, in fact, seek justice that way,” added McGowan, 44, before going onto suggest that police officers, justices and judges should be specifically trained “in sexual assault, sexual harassment and abuse, so they can understand it more.

The Internet Is Bowing Down and Obsessing Over NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live

Did you kneel at the altar of NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert on Sunday night? Even if you didn't get a chance to watch the network's latest live musical - NBC previously put on The Sound of Music Live! and The Wiz Live! - the good folks on Twitter had more than enough opinions to spare. While it seems pretty much everyone was enchanted with Sara Bareilles's performance of "I Don't Know How to Love Him," they also couldn't get enough of the man himself, played by John Legend (personally, we're still obsessing over his performance of "Gethsemane"). Take a look at the best tweets about Jesus Christ Superstar Live below - the good, the bad, and the holy.

McGowan continued, “Happy f—king birthday. From all of us.”

‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Screenwriter Jennifer Lee Reveals Why a Classic Book Can’t Be Translated
Jennifer Lee never expected to be this busy. She just flew in from previews on “Frozen: The Broadway Musical” (March 22) to promote “A Wrinkle in Time,” which she wrote after 2014 musical “Frozen” turned into the Oscar-winning, top-grossing worldwide animated blockbuster of all time.

She’s still writing the sequel to “Frozen,” too. “I was joking that if I have time, I have to write the climax for ‘Frozen 2’ for tomorrow morning,” said Lee. “It’s a Champagne problem, to have too much to do, when you love what you do.”

Lee wrote two animated features that grossed over $1 billion worldwide: She was on the Oscar-winning “Zootopia” writing team with college chum Phil Johnston, as she was on “Wreck-It-Ralph.” But after she and director Chris Buck wrote “Frozen,” Disney asked her to be co-director, having found out that she trained to be a director at Columbia film school.

Oscars: ‘Coco’ Co-Director Proclaims ‘Representation Matters’

Disney-Pixar’s “Coco” has won the Academy Award for best animated feature for director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson, marking Disney’s sixth consecutive win in the category.

“‘Coco’ is proof that art can change and connect the world, and this can only be done when we have a place for everyone and anyone who feels like an other to be heard,” said producer Anderson.

Co-director Adrian Molina thanked the people of Mexico. “‘Coco’ would not exist without your endlessly beautiful culture and traditions. With ‘Coco’ we tried to take a step forward toward a world where all children can see characters in movies that look and talk and live like they do. Marginalized people deserve to feel like they belong. Representation matters,” he concluded.

Molina, however, was not eligible to be named as part of the winning team, since Academy rules allow only one director

Best Animated Feature Oscar predictions: Could political impact of ‘The Breadwinner’ help it take down ‘Coco’?

  • Gold Derby
According to the Oscar predictions of our experts from major media outlets, Pixar’s “Coco” is practically unbeatable in the race for Best Animated Feature. However, an Oscar upset could be looming from Gkids’s “The Breadwinner.” Directed by Nora Twomey and produced by Angelina Jolie, the politically charged animated film centers on a girl (voiced by Saara Chaudry) whose father is imprisoned by the Taliban. In order to provide for the rest of her family, she dresses as a boy so that she can make money while also conforming to the Taliban’s oppressive religious laws.

Oscar Animated Shorts Long on Artistry

Oscar Animated Shorts Long on Artistry
Oscar’s animated shorts category typically showcases both studio and indie projects created with a variety of techniques. This year’s nominees reflect that diversity — to the point where they may present apples vs. oranges choices for Academy voters.

Dear Basketball

Directed by Glen Keane

“Dear Basketball” has arguably brought more attention to the Academy’s animated shorts category this year by virtue of its stellar pedigree alone. Written and narrated by basketball superstar Kobe Bryant as his farewell to the game, the 2D-animated film was directed by the legendary Disney animator Glen Keane, and boasts an orchestral score by the multi-Oscar-winning composer John Williams. While Keane has created unforgettable characters for “The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin” and “Beauty and the Beast,” this represents the first Oscar nomination for him personally. “Dear Basketball” is also the first time Williams has scored a short film in his long career — and he took a break from scoring “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” to do

Rose McGowan Cancels Tour After Shouting Match with Transgender Woman

Rose McGowan Cancels Tour After Shouting Match with Transgender Woman
Rose McGowan is on tour to promote her new book Brave, and it got off to a rocky start earlier in the week when the actress got into a shouting match with a transgender woman during an appearance at a Barnes and Noble bookstore. McGowan has been promoting Brave on talk shows as well as book signings, but it appears that she has canceled all upcoming appearances after the meltdown at the bookstore. In a video of the altercation, a transgender woman asks Rose McGowan about some remarks that she made on RuPaul's podcast.

In the fan-shot video footage, it appears that Rose McGowan may have been answering questions from the audience when a woman in the back steps up and says, "trans women are dying, and you said that we, as trans women, are not like regular women." She was referencing McGowan's comments on RuPaul's What's The Tee?

Rose McGowan on Harvey Weinstein, Ben Affleck, and Hollywood’s ‘Rape Factory’

Imagine a punk-rock variation on feminist theorist Laura Mulvey, speeding through a patriarchal kingdom and howling truths to the people. That’s Rose McGowan, who’s been sandblasting her way through the promotional circuit this week to promote her memoir, “Brave,” and the E! series “Citizen Rose.” Once written off as a shrill loon, she’s developed a homegrown culture jamming, rejecting conventional etiquette in a quest to destabilize masculine conventions.

“I use language to pierce the brain,” she said. “If I spoke like everybody else spoke, it would just dull everything. I might just know what I’m talking about.”

McGowan comes to her current role after a lifetime of experience. She spent the first stage of her acting career contending with performances that restricted her potential and simmered with silent rage against the misogynistic industry that put her on the map. She survived childhood in the Child of God cult,

She also said she “sees things” when asked about the spies Weinstein allegedly sent to quiet her.

In the strange interview spanning the Bible, George W. Bush, and khakis, McGowan, wearing an orange hoodie, also addressed her recent arrest on drug charges, saying, “Yes, I’ve had handcuffs on me, but no one else in this situation. Isn’t that grand?”

“I think we can do better, societally,” she added during another segment of the interview. “I think we can be looser, 10%, have more fun, be better, see more colors, run, and what

‘Citizen Rose’ Review: Rose McGowan’s Crusade, Explained In Her Own Powerful Words
One of the first things we learn from “Citizen Rose,” the two-hour documentary special featuring the personal journey of Rose McGowan, is that an MTV video crew was following her the day she was assaulted in 1997, filming a “Day in the Life of Rose” special.

Footage from that moment is used briefly in an early sequence — a young McGowan as ’90s kids might remember her, looking happily into the camera as she enters a hotel room for her first meeting with “The Monster.” “And I said ‘I think my life is finally getting easier…’ and that haunted me,” she says in the present day, before collapsing into tears.

The red carpet and archival footage used in “Citizen Rose” has real impact, reminding us of her long-ago public image, one which did in fact leave an impression of “commodifying” her as the “bad girl” star of movies like “Scream” and “Jawbreaker.
