The Oscars Now Have A Code Of Conduct Following Weinstein Scandals
This week, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences said that’ve adopted its first code of conduct for its nearly 8,500 members.
The new code stipulates that the academy is in no place for “people who abuse their status, power or influence in a manner that violates standards of decency.”
The standards of conduct were drafted by a task force launched by the academy in October. It was formed after Weinstein was accused by dozens of women of sexual harassment and abuse.
Film academy chief executive Dawn Hudson introduced the new rules to members in an email.
