    Ehhh I saw a bunch of people defending him. Maybe that was more anti-Denzel than anything.

    I think it mostly was more anti-Denzel to be honest. He was annoying as heck in Fences too. Even today I go back and forth on whether Affleck or Washington were the lesser of 2 evils. Denzel gave the worse and more obnoxious performance, but Casey just kind of played himself and is an infinitely worse human being in my opinion.

    If philanthropy towards feminist causes alone qualifies a rich person to be a strong feminist whose brand of feminism cannot be questioned, then we’re all in big, big, big trouble.

    Based on performance alone, the Oscar should have gone to Mortenson by a mile.

    This is really off topic but he was the one that was robbed throughout the entire season. His performance was so so much better than Denzel hamming it up to 11 and Casey Affleck playing a version of himself.

    That’s what I was always saying the entire awards season! But Casey had the stupid “my brother won so now it’s my turn” narrative” and Denzel had the “I should be the first black actor to win 3 Oscars” and the “I should be the first black actor to direct myself to an Oscar” narratives. The really tragic thing is that Viggo Mortensen gave by far the best performance out of all the nominees… but he didn’t have any bullshit “narrative” to sell Oscar voters outside of his performance on it’s own great merits. The Oscars may be fun and even magnificent at times, but never forget that it is all politics in the end. 🙁

    For what it’s worth, I voted for Viggo to win the Goldderby Film Award and the Independent Spirit Award for Captain Fantastic.

    Please, forget seeing Justice League or ANY future movies that star the hypocrite and groper Ben Affleck. He is a disgusting excuse for a human being who does not deserve your money.

    I really don’t care about defending Affleck, but common, the Hilarie Burton thing is far from groping.

    I’ve read comments comparing this to Isaac Mizrahi and Scarlett Johansson. Now THAT’S groping.

    But worst of all is the other video. The interviewer already came out and said it was for cameras. She clearly seems into it and part of it.

    If that video were such a big deal, it might not have come out immediately, but it would’ve come out years ago. Specially during the Argo days, last year with Casey, around the Batman announcement and so on. Again, desperate people trying to make something happen.

    The worst part is that the girl defends Affleck, people who regularly watch their interviews when they aired comment that it’s nothing, and these sites still keep the story up for clicks.

    There’s a lot of desperation out the to put him and others in the Harvey train front and center.

    A LOT of things will happen and will come out, but people should wait for them, not try to make them happen when there’s nothing there.

    Kate Beckinsale has come out with her own story.

    What amazes me is that these women, since the moment of their abuse, experience or whatever, have eventually come to be stars and have some sort of power. Did they really not know about each other? Was it never discussed even between at least two of them? Don’t tell me a Kate Beckingsale + Gwyneth Paltrow (of all people!) combo couldn’t have exploded with this story years and years ago. They’ve been big enough names for many years now. People would have believed them. They’re not “some assitant/reporter trying to make money” which is the token excuse for everything. Or even Angelina Jolie on her own. Everybody would’ve followed them like they’re doing right now.

    Specially since the OReilly, Trump, Ailes situations. Or were people just sitting there waiting for their turns?

    I can understand people wanting to leave traumatic things in the past and just move on, and people like Rose McGowan not giving out a name years ago when she told her story, but some women are big enough to have done it and not be hurt by him. And help others in the process.

    Is this way too naive of me when talking about Hollywood? (Yes.)

    Like many others, I have mixed feelings about this whole situation.

    It is. Hollywood is a cruel industry for women especially. If it wasn’t an elaborate report with a lot of women sharing their experiences no one would’ve believed any one person no matter how big they are. Because as big and powerful as some of those women are Harvey’s power would’ve still triumphed over them.

    The New York Times is reporting Twitter has banned Rose McGowan’s account.

    She is not “banned.” Her account was temporarily blocked because apparently one of her tweets contained someone’s personal phone number, which is against the rules.

    LOL…Some people are really nieve. If you’re going to start blaming/boycotting/judging people, you might as well shut down this site, as most of Hollywood is dirty and guilty of looking the other way, or even knowingly benefiting from bad behavior, sexism, homophobia and racism. It’s a fucking shitty place that just happens to produce some fine art sometimes.

    Think about all of the horrific stories that haven’t been outed yet.

    I have an issue with all of this. These women decided to stay silent for fame and fortune, allowing other women to become victims. Angelina is a very powerful person, but she chose to be silent to the public about something like this. I am not saying they are lying, I am just trying to get a better understanding of this. Now they speak up???

    That’s exactly how I feel, It’s disgusting, but, it’s not shocking since several of these actresses that say “I didn’t knew” used Harvey to get Oscar and roles. I mean, not for a second they thought about their competitors while doing this dirty game. But, today, they are here “supporting women“. It’s a show of hypocrisy, lies and opportunism.
