The Governors Awards, often regarded as the unofficial opening bell of awards season, took place over the weekend. Though the harassment scandals dominated many of the cocktail hour conversations, they were absent from the evening’s public comments. Is this a preview of what's to come this upcoming awards season? Vanity Fair's Rebecca Keegan was there, and she reminded us that last year's award season hot topic was Donald Trump's election:
"So, people took on a topical issue last year during awards season, this year the issue is right in their own backyard and I think it's going to be really fascinating to see if people feel compelled to speak at these upcoming award shows or if, as at the Governor's Awards, everybody's talking about it behind the scenes but on a mic nobody will say a thing."
Just as the limo traffic cleared from the Governors Awards, a rally got underway at Hollywood and Highland. Sexual assault survivors rallied together to target Hollywood's complicity culture.
And although he's no stranger to scandal, it seems Mel Gibson is having something of a resurgence. "Daddy's Home 2" secured the No. 2 spot at the box office this weekend, begging the question, can Hollywood men come back from anything?
Plus, Louis CK's allegations and admission to sexual misconduct. How his response is rocking the networks.
