Harvey Weinstein and Sundance have a history.
The producer had long been a fixture, picking up future hits and hobnobbing with talent. It was also, we learned in 2017, where he perpetrated some terrible crimes. In 2018, Weinstein sat out the festival for the first time since the ’80s.
In 2019, Weinstein had a presence at the fest yet again – but not as a power player on the ground. This year, he is the subject of Untouchable, Ursula Macfarlane’s 98-minute documentary about the abuses he’s waged on others over the past four decades.

In the days following Harvey Weinstein’s arrest, some within the entertainment industry have posted a statement released by Time’s Up — the organization created in the wake of the scandal.
Others, like actress Annabella Sciorra, have taken things a step further. Sciorra was one of the women to come forward in Ronan Farrow’s follow up stories featured in The New Yorker. On Sunday, she shared that she felt the farthest thing from celebratory when she heard the initial news about his arrest.
“The law finally caught up with Harvey Weinstein on Friday and charge him with multiple counts of rape and sexual assault,” she tweeted. “But nothing about that felt celebratory to me.” Read more…

Salma Hayek has spoken out against Harvey Weinstein’s denials of sexual abuse against herself and actress Lupita Nyong’o, saying he hadn’t responded to any other actresses’ claims in the same way because they were both women of color.
Hayek spoke on the #MeToo movement and the fallout from accusations against disgraced producer Weinstein on Sunday as part of the Kering ‘Women in Motion’ talks at Cannes Film Festival, in a live-streamed interview at the Majestic Hotel.
Hayek publicly accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and abuse in December 2017, in a harrowing op-ed published in The New York Times. The Oscar-winning actress called Weinstein “her monster,” after his treatment of her on the set of 2002’s Frida — an accusation Weinstein denied. Read more…

UPDATED: May 7, 2018, 6:48 p.m. PDT with information about New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s resignation.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who recently filed a civil suit against Harvey Weinstein, has himself been accused of physically abusing women.
He announced his resignation just hours after the New Yorker published the accounts of four women, who said Schneiderman assaulted them within the contexts of their romantic relationships and encounters.
“In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me,” he said in a statement. “While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.” Read more…

Ah, leave it to The Men to give themselves a pat on the back for “predicting” accused Hollywood predators like Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein — who, let the record show, were actually outed by talented journalists (many of them women) and the survivors who found the courage to speak up against them (again, many of them women).
Only a show like Family Guy would feel justified in congratulating itself for a few passing jokes that acknowledged the widely known abuses of now-disgraced Hollywood men like Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein. The show packaged its Emmy consideration mailers this year with a smug-looking Peter Griffin insisting, “We predicted Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weisntein. Open DVD to see who’s next.” Read more…
