1:17 pm
leaving court in december 67 year old harvey weinstein's health appears to have deteriorated sharply in just 2 years after the scandal around him started to unfold . in 2017 weinstein was still a cochairman of the weinstein company alongside his brother bob. together they produced a number of highly successful movies including pulp fiction shakespeare in love and django unchained. in october 2017 several women many of them actresses came forward to accuse weinstein of sexual harassment the allegation the spark for global feminist me to movement which soon spread from the film industry to many other aspects of society weinstein's case continued to bring forward one new account after another he led me to his bathroom pleading that i just watch him masturbate. my heart was racing and i was very scared. i pulled my arm away finally and headed
1:18 pm
to the door he started following me and telling me that he could introduce me to bob weinstein and i could get a 3 picture deal and that he would green light my script but i had to watch him masturbate about 80 women have spoken out about harvey weinstein among them actresses angelina jolie ashley judd and gwyneth paltrow according to paltrow she was 22 years old when weinstein made sexual advances against her. following the accusations the academy of motion picture arts and sciences which awards the oscars expelled weinstein he was fired from his own company in october 2017 mediately after the scandal broke weinstein's wife georgina chapman announced she was leaving him. the criminal trial against weinstein is based on 2 cases of sexual assault and rape dating from 20062013 but prosecutors will call on several other

accusers to establish a pattern of predatory sexual behavior. let me get some perspective now on weinstein strawn and now from a feminist author and activist christina learns she's also a co-founder off the advocacy group the center for feminist foreign policy welcome just to not tell me 1st what will you be watching for in this trial all perhaps around this trial. i hope that we once again will get the longest possible charts long as possible sentence and i also hope that this trial will unlike many of us focus on his behavior on his predatory behavior and. history and that the victims and those who have come forward will not be traumatized and and i really hope that so throughout history like women have come forward and like laid open the wounds of sexualized violence that they've experienced through men and throughout
1:20 pm
history we have seen that the voice in the statement of one men usually tends to weigh as heavy as those of like hundreds even thousands of women and i hope that this will change i hope that when up to 80 in people women have come forward to accuse this sexual perpetrator that their voice is what we have and that we have finally changed how society. listens to women's voices now when the scandal 1st erupted about weinstein it kicked off the me to move into that it was 2 years ago has anything really changed for women in these 2 yes so not enough but at the same time to me to movement has been recognized as one of the most impactful of social movements that we've ever seen throughout history so all the debates that we've seen they are fundamental in changing social norms and behaviors because that's the key fact. a recent study in has come forward in the u.s. that has shown that when boys show
1:21 pm
a progressive attitudes towards genda they're less likely half as likely to commit them violin. afterwards so we really need to realize that it's not only about having a fine station it's about a system of such in the that we have in our society and it's like a pyramid where the bottom it's it's like. bad attitudes towards women and then it's like the turn to pay gap and then this we're raising to the top we see. rape and we see sexless violence and the kind of the peak of the. it's like in germany for example every every day a man a husband or former partner tries to kill his wife or form a wife and unless we recognize that males violence men's violence and toxic masculinity is the biggest security concern in our society and nothing will change so it's not just the celebrities in fear that you have this kind of stuff but also indeed to do life in our societies christina loans thank you very much for
1:22 pm
your insights on this very important issue thank you. on the 2nd look not the 1st big hollywood event of the golden globe awards they often seen as an indication of what to expect at the oscars which are next month it was a night of upsets with several surprise than is taking home the evening's most coveted prizes. the red carpet lit up with smiling celebrities and flashing cameras as the stars of hollywood gathered for the golden globes awards ceremony it's the 1st major red carpet event of 2020. the big surprise when it was director sam mendez found $917.00 which won best drama beating favorites marriage story and joker. quentin tarantino's film once upon a time in hollywood won best comedy. own and in t.v. comedy quirky hit seriously bad scooped the top prize while the show's triple
1:23 pm
talent writer producer and actress phoebe waller bridge to come the award for best comedy actress for what you believe is what we wanted them to make me and also many people ruined my life. tom hanks won a lifetime achievement award for his decades of roles and many well loved films. many recipients use the stage to call attention to current events and political issues like gender equality climate change and the bushfires in australia. that is facing me straight to gather hopefully we can be unified and actually make some changes it's great to vote but sometimes we have to take that responsibility on ourselves we don't have to take private jets to palm springs for the words sometimes we're back with these. comedian and host ricky gervais has closed the ceremony asking the audience to donate to australians affected by the fire to australia right. detainments correspondent scott rocks that are from the
1:24 pm
w culture joins me now welcome scott now let's talk more about the styles using the speeches to get political how significant was that at the golden globes. well i think it's actually quite significant particularly because the globes opened with host ricky gervais's warning the audience not to use the awards as a political platform he's known for being quite cynical and snarky and he deliberately told potential winners to not use as a political platform because people don't care what they think thankfully they ignore them as we just heard there are a lot of political speeches last night led more or less by the topic of climate change that was the biggest issue driven by the disaster of the bush fires in australia and australian our actor russell crowe who except an award in ad stands he set the tone saying that the bush fires were the result of climate change that people had to take action we just heard walking phoenix 2nd that and there are
1:25 pm
a number of other actors and actresses who won last night who specifically pointed to the issue of climate change but for me the most powerful speech was actually from michelle williams who used her award platform it gave her to speak out about women's rights particularly the right to abortion which macy's might be under threat in the u.s. at the moment so it's interesting because i think it shows that hollywood thinks in this very politically turbulent turbulent time that they have to use the platforms they're given to to speak out on the issues that matter to them and not just use the awards thing like the golden globes as a chance to celebrate themselves ok another issue is that fakes taking over the big screen now always saying the film was pushed back. yeah it was interesting netflix led the nominations going to the golden globes both in t.v. and film is supposed to be their big night but they came away with just 2 wins out of $34.00 nominations there's been a big pushback against netflix from the film industry because netflix refuses to
1:26 pm
give their movies a sort of proper theatrical release and the 2 big films irishman from martin scorsese and marriage story didn't really come away with many inspired short just pick up one globe and but i think it's not just the pushback from the film industry but also sort of shows that movies that go out on netflix don't have the same cache as big screen releases i don't think it has the same impact if you see a film like marriage story on your couch in your pajamas on on your smartphone or on a on a computer the films that 117 once upon a time in hollywood those are really proper big epic movies that got proper big epic theatrical releases and i think that has an impact particularly on voters at the golden globes and maybe next month at the oscars they're trying to do have you scott ross but what was it that had to you. here's a recap of the top story that we're following for you and. his arms lead i had to look combination has been leading prayers at the funeral of general qassam so that
