12-10-2017


The hosts of the Oscars are to hold emergency talks to consider the future role of film mogul Harvey Weinstein following claims of sexual misconduct. 

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said the allegations of sexual assault against Weinstein were "repugnant". 

Bafta, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, has already suspended his membership. Weinstein strongly denies the allegations against him.
