Memo from Oscar to Harv, “You out of here!”

Headline from Hollywood”

“Hollywood’s de facto governing body, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, voted overwhelmingly on Saturday to ‘immediately expel’ Harvey Weinstein…”

Hat tip and reax, Professor Ann Althouse:

NYT points out, Roman Polanski and Bill Cosby are still members of the Academy.

One member of the Academy’s board, Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy “told fellow board members that she was outraged by the allegations… [but] was also said to be aware that pushing him out could put the academy on a slippery slope.”

If the slope is slippery, the era is not over.

Perhaps Ms Kennedy should invoke the modified Groucho Marx rule, decline to a member of any organization which would admit Roman Polanski.
