NEW YORK — The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science announced Wednesday that it has adopted its first code of control for its 8,427 members.
Film academy arch executive Dawn Hudson introduced the new manners to members in an email. In October, the academy pennyless with tradition and donejust the second person ever diminished from the Oscars’ ruling body.
The new code of control stipulates that the academy is no place for “people who abuse their status, energy or change in a demeanour that violates standards of decency.”
The academy’s house may now postpone or ban those who violate the code of control or who “compromise the integrity” of the academy.
The standards of control were drafted by a charge force launched by the academy in October. It was shaped after Weinstein was accused by dozens of women of passionate nuisance and abuse. Weinstein, who won an Academy Award for “Shakespeare in Love,” has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
Hudson told members that some-more sum on the routine by which offending members will be judged will be announced later.
