Could #Hollywood’s sex crimes force the #Oscars to cancel?

Screenshot 2017-12-10 at 08.04.01As movie fans have been hit by an onslaught of stories about powerful Hollywood men sexually harassing and abusing others, one entertainment critic suggested a radical idea: Just cancel the Oscars.

“If the ceremony goes on as planned, everything about it is going to remind us of the ‘Pervnado’ that has left Tinseltown reeling,” wrote Kyle Smith, a critic for the New York Post and the National Review.

Maybe Smith was just being cheeky. But I have to admit, I’ve been in enough of a down-on-Hollywood mood lately to wonder if it would be the right thing to do.
