Harvey Weinstein Gets Lifetime Ban from TV Academy

Breaking News

Harvey Weinstein just got another lifetime ban handed down to him — this time it’s the TV Academy who’s saying he’s persona non grata … for the rest of his days.

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences held a hearing Monday and its governing board voted to expel Weinstein from the Academy for life. His former company, The Weinstein Co., has produced a number of TV shows over the years — most notably, perhaps, being “Project Runway.”

In a statement, the Academy says it supports those women speaking out against Weinstein. They go on to say they’re horrified by the widespread claims of sexual misconduct in the biz and are conducting a review of their membership codes of conduct.

The Academy finishes by saying … “We are determined to play a role in protecting all television professionals from predatory harassment, ensuring they are able to practice their craft in a safe environment.” 

Weinstein has already been banned from the Producers Guild of America, and is under investigation by a handful of law enforcement agencies.

Harvey Weinstein's Ouster from Academy, Fake Outrage?

Harvey Weinstein's Ouster from Academy, Fake Outrage?

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences expressed its outrage by kicking Harvey Weinstein out of the org, but the question … is this honest indignation or PR?

Bill Cosby is still a member in good standing, and the Academy has been silent as a church mouse for more than a year after more than 60 women have accused him of rape, date rape, sexual assault and child sexual abuse. 

Ditto Roman Polanski, who raped a 13-year-old in 1977.  In fact, the Academy bestowed on him Best Director in 2003 for “The Pianist,” and the likes of Meryl Streep gave him a standing ovation. 

In expelling Weinstein, the Academy said it wanted to “send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over.” 

The question … did they know about Weinstein’s antics for years, and were they complicit?

Check out some of the evidence … 

COURTNEY LOVE, 2005, PUBLICLY WARNS ACTRESSES, STAY AWAY FROM WEINSTEIN

 ANGIE EVERHARDT, 10 YEARS AGO SHE SAYS WEINSTEIN ASSAULTED HER ON A BOAT DURING A FILM FESTIVAL. SHE TOLD EVERYONE ON BOARD AND THEY LAUGHED IT OFF.

WEINSTEIN’S ANTICS WERE SUCH COMMON KNOWLEDGE, BACK IN 2012 “30 ROCK” JOKED ABOUT IT.

AND SETH MCFARLANE TOOK A SHOT AT WEINSTEIN DURING THE 2013 OSCAR NOMS.

So when the Academy talks about “complicity” … are they talking about others, or themselves?

Harvey Weinstein Kicked Out of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Breaking News

Another huge blow for Harvey Weinstein — The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has kicked him out.

The Oscar winner is no longer part of the Oscar club after the board of governors — which includes Hollywood royalty like Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks — met at their headquarters in Beverly Hills Saturday and voted to expel him … stripping away his lifetime membership.

The Academy issued a statement after the meeting, saying their decision was made to “send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over.”

It continued … “What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society. The Board continues to work to establish ethical standards of conduct that all Academy members will be expected to exemplify.”

As we’ve reported … Weinstein’s been fired by his own company and is currently in Arizona for rehab.

He won an Oscar in 1999 for “Shakespeare in Love” and was nominated in 2003 for “Gangs of New York.”
