Kirk Douglas, 101, has had a long and storied profession in the motion pictures, and he was honored with a standing ovation Sunday night at the Golden Globes. The” Bad and the Beautiful” and”Spartacus” actor provided this year’s Globe for Finest Movie script with daughter-in-law Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The #MeToo movement aiming to provide victims of unwanted sexual advances and assault a voice was a huge theme at this year’s awards ceremony, with males and females putting on all-black to show their solidarity versus sexual misconduct and abuse in Hollywood.Hollywood’s stars should repent that they looked the other way for so long and glorified effective men like Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey in spite of several reports that Weinstein attacked women and Spacey preyed on teenage kids.”If Hollywood was in fact real in their interest to stop sexual attack, they would ask a great deal of people to stay at home,”Glenn said.”They must be humiliated to go to the Golden Globes after the years where they excused the actions … that everyone knew and never said a word.”EDITOR’S KEEP IN MIND: This article supplied courtesy of
TheBlaze. Kevin Winter/Getty Images This is a rush transcript and might consist of errors.GLENN: Justin Timberlake, Reese Witherspoon,Natalie Portman, and mostly everyone at the Golden
Globes last night, all wore the very same thing: lapel pins with the
words” Time’s Up”on them. They wore the pins to reveal their assistance for all those who have experienced sexual misconduct, particularly in the show business. How very brave of these celebrities to jeopardize the stability of their designer clothing with a lapel pin!It’s simply another empty gesture by the Hollywood elite.They attempted to make
an useless, indulgent award reveal into something more than simply an useless, indulgent award show and failed badly. If Hollywood was genuine in their interest to stop sexual
attack, they would have stayed home. They should be humiliated to participate in the Golden Globes after all the years they excused the actions of their peers and never ever uttered a word.But they can’t turn a possibility to celebrate themselves down. And when the host, Seth Meyers, joked about Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey’s death, they boo-ed him. They provided Kirk Douglas a standing ovation and unique award although he has long been rumored to have raped actress Natalie Wood when she was 16 years old. Meryl Streep might
n’t say one bad feature of Weinstein all night, just vaguely referencing him by informing Ryan Seacrest,” I think that
individuals understand now of a power imbalance and it’s led to abuse and we wish to repair that.”It just goes to reveal that Hollywood has apparently not discovered its lesson.
They can wear black and wear lapel pins, however that’s not appropriate contrition for their sin of silence.”Time’s Up “on your hypocrisy, Hollywood.
