Cinema's most prestigious international film festivals have condemned the alleged actions of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
Cannes Film Festival President Pierre Lescure and general delegate Thierry Frémaux issued a joint statement on Wednesday that said they were "dismayed" to learn of the accusations of harassment and sexual violence against the embattled former Weinstein Co. honcho.
Samantha Bee ripped into Harvey Weinstein, Republicans and “creepy” men during Wednesday’s episode of “Full Frontal.”
Devoting her entire first segment to “this season’s second giant vortex of destructive moisture named ‘Harvey,’” Bee immediately criticized the “apology-like statement” Weinstein issued after the decades' worth of sexual harassment allegations first made headlines last week.
“Give me a break, white Cosby,” said Bee. “Don’t blame the ‘60s and ‘70s for your [terrible] decision-making. It’s serial sexual harassment, not a Monkees tattoo.”
Previously unreleased live recordings by Whitney Houston and alternate takes from the sessions for her blockbuster hit soundtrack album to the film “The Bodyguard” will make up a new collection to be released Nov. 17.
“Whitney Houston—I Wish You Love: More From The Bodyguard” will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the film and the companion album. It includes an alternate mix of the hit single from the film, “I Will Always Love You” (a cover of the Dolly Parton song), as well as live performances from Houston's 1993-'95 The Bodyguard tour, including a version of the song “Run to You” that she rarely performed.
The new album will be released 25 years to the day of the original release date in 1992 for “The Bodyguard” soundtrack, which became the first album of the SoundScan era that began just a year earlier, to sell 1 million copies in a single week.
The battle between animal and human, I broke that down to be the most essential thing to focus on with [Logan/Wolverine]. We can all relate to that. Maybe not in the same extreme level, but we wrestle every day with that argument between chaos and control and freedom and discipline.
As allegations against disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein pile up, more and more celebrities are coming forward to either confirm or deny their own preexisting knowledge about the situation.
On Wednesday, Seth MacFarlane explained the origins of a 2013 joke he made at Harvey Weinstein's expense during the announcement of Academy Award nominations.
MacFarlane cracked his joke immediately after he listed the nominees for supporting actress. "Congratulations," he said. "You five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein," which got a considerable response from the room.

After Kathy Griffin was unceremoniously booted from the gig, Anderson Cooper's New Year's Eve companion will be his longtime pal, Andy Cohen, CNN announced Wednesday.
The CNN anchor will be joined by Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" host for this year's installment of the cable network's "New Year’s Eve Live With Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen."
Cohen replaces Griffin, who was terminated from the program in May after participating in a bloody photo shoot in which she held a fake severed head in the likeness of President Trump. She apologized, but the damage was done.
After four seasons, "Being Mary Jane" will end its run on BET in 2018.
The drama, which stars Gabrielle Union as a broadcast journalist navigating a hectic work and personal life, launched as a movie-length pilot in 2014. The finale will also be a two-hour TV film.
"Being Mary Jane has been a landmark series not only for BET, but for African American women around the world who saw themselves in Mary Jane, her family, friends and coworkers," Connie Orlando, BET Networks executive vice president and head of programming, said in a statement. "From the captivating storytelling, to the richly complex characters, to the powerful issues tackled on the series, we remain immensely proud. "We look forward to closing out Mary Jane’s journey with a series finale that is sure to blow fans away!”
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Wednesday that it will hold a meeting Saturday to discuss Harvey Weinstein's membership. The decision comes just days after bombshell reports were published alleging he has sexually assaulted a number of industry actresses.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced Wednesday that Weinstein's membership in the organization had been suspended, effective immediately.
While suspending a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is a highly rare act, it did happen in 2004 when actor Carmine Caridi was booted for sharing film screeners with a pirate who made the pictures available online.
