We Need to Stop Nominating Sexual Predators Like James Franco for Awards

ward season has descended upon us and with it an amplified discussion of the #MeToo movement and the Time’s Up legal defense fund for victims of sexual harassment and assault. Men in Hollywood are facing a reckoning, and award shows this season have become platforms for this important cause and also reminders about how many men still out there may be walking around with skeletons in their closets.

While new accusations may emerge during this award show season and it’s important that they do, it’s also important that men who have already been accused of harassment or assault are no longer nominated, that abusers are no longer recognized with a statue for a part in a movie.

There is no separating the art from the sexual predator, and organizations like the Academy and the Hollywood Foreign Press need to step up their standards.
