    2 Oscars body approves code of conduct for behavior

    Hmmm..........

    Oscars body approves code of conduct for behaviour

    7 December 2017


    The organisation that awards the Oscars has approved standards of conduct for its members.

    It follows the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voting to expel Harvey Weinstein in October, following allegations of sexual assault made against him.

    CEO Dawn Hudson told members the Academy has no place for those who abuse their power and status.

    All 8,427 members will be expected to abide by the new guidelines.

    Weinstein, 65, has apologised for some aspects of his behaviour but insisted that any sexual contacts he had were consensual, and he denies accusations of criminal sexual harassment, rape and sexual assault.

    Hudson wrote the academy members a letter on standards of conduct, which has been widely published and reproduced.


    Academy just sent a note to members saying its board approved the attached code of conduct. Allegations of noncompliance will be handled through a process that will not be unveiled/determined until next year. Process will “guide” Academy on whether allegations “warrant action” pic.twitter.com/3zxrJvfwC6

    The guidelines were drawn up by a task force, led by David Rubin, who produces the academy's Governors Awards.

    The task force worked with experts in sexual harassment and professors of ethics, business and law from major US universities.

    The Television Academy, which produces the Emmys, and Bafta were also involved in the discussions with AMPAS.

    Hudson emailed all members on Wednesday, telling them: "Academy membership is a privilege offered to only a select few within the global community of filmmakers.

    "In addition to achieving excellence in the field of motion picture arts and sciences, members must also behave ethically by upholding the academy's values of respect for human dignity, inclusion, and a supportive environment that fosters creativity.

    "There is no place in the academy for people who abuse their status, power or influence in a manner that violates recognised standards of decency."

    Anyone who violates the standards or compromises "the integrity of the Academy by their actions" could be suspended or expelled.

    Weinstein is only the second person to be expelled from the organisation. The first, Carmine Caridi, was expelled for sharing advance screenings of films.

    Well this is going to get real interesting in short order, particularly considering the egomaniacs in that industry from the beginning. The attorneys in Hollywood must be tripping all over themselves in anticipation of the billable hours ahead of them.

    "There is no place in the academy for people who abuse their status, power or influence in a manner that violates recognised standards of decency."

    hmm...........if that is the case, that would be like telling NFL players you are expelled permanently from playing in the NFL if you have a felony charge in your past......

    As a result neither the NFL nor in this case the academy would have enough participants left to continue as they have in the past.

    It would be time to restructure the whole academy at this point because like the NFL; it's too far gone in the way of holding its current membership up to such standards.

    Reminds me of one of my father's favorite sayings:

    "You can't legislate morality."

    Owner's saying...

    "You can't compel obedience - you make it so your horse WANTS to obey."

    Humans are not equine so getting that want to obey is more challenge.

    When my youngest son went to work in a machine shop while in college, the crusty old owner had some sage words of advice for him. Among them was, "son, never get your pu**y and your paycheck in the same place"

    It looks like a whole bunch of folks never learned that...

    Only took 100 years to come up with the guideline, who says they are going to follow it? The machine has operated on sexism, rape and the casting couch since it's inception, they are just releasing this fluff for the Flyover Folks, running interference so maybe they'll start watching corrupt perverts acting again.
