Fox’s Roger Ailes’ notoriety is well earned. He created a news channel that forever changed the TV landscape, and so any scandal tied to him is worth examination. Over 25 women came forward with claims, including on-air talents Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson, who was the first one who made allegations.
Weinstein and #MeToo.
Interestingly, Harvey Weinstein’s long-awaited trail starts tomorrow in New York City. Compared to Ailes, the rumors about Weinstein were endless. Dozens and dozens of stars, both big and small, had personal stories to share about Weinstein’s predatory ways. Why no movie about Weinstein?
The Golden Globes.
And even more interesting, the first of many seasonal awards shows is on tonight. Hollywood is looking at other industries (e.g., television) rather than it’s own industry for complicity in sexual harassment.
Who’s the real Margot Robbie?
Good question since she doesn’t play a real person in Bombshell. Robbie was born and raised on a farm in Dalby, Queensland . She studied drama at Somerset College. She began her career in Australian independent films in the late 2000s, before working in the soap opera Neighbours (2008–2011).
Robbie’s fame continued to grow with leading roles as the superhero in the film Suicide Squad (2016) , the disgraced figure skater in the biographical film I, Tonya, and as Sharon Tate in the comedy-drama Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019).
