The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science announced Wednesday that it has adopted its first code of conduct for its 8,427 members.
The new code of conduct stipulates that the academy is no place for "people who abuse their status, power or influence in a manner that violates standards of decency."

The Hollyweird idiots would have to toss at least 90 percent of their members if they were really were serious about adhering to "standards of decency."
Standards of decency..
Oh, gad, I think I broke something...
And just what are those “standards of decency”.
So no bimbo eruptions?
Oh my, Hollywood might veer into the 10 commandments before long.
“standards of decency”
I like to say, there ought to be an app for that. They vary with time and place and person and circumstance. That is to say, their “standards” aren’t standard at all. They’re just what the people in power at the moment want you to do.
This reminds me of the actions of a company I used to work for, that got into trouble with the feds because it got caught participating in a boycott of Israel. They produced a little booklet of corporate business ethics, impressively put together in multiple colors on beautifully-textured paper. Of course, I was so far down the totem pole that none of it would ever apply to me, but to read it you would think that Moses had delivered it from the top of the mountain. There was nothing in it, though, that anybody with a decent upbringing and personal integrity would not have already known and put into practice.
Let’s call it the ‘No squeezing the Charmin’ rule . . .
This is all for show.
Good. That wipes out all of Hollyweird.
They've tried that already...
Just make sure the last person out turns off the lights.
As to the women...Half of them dress like sluts....the rest of them are sluts.
“Academy - a society or institution of distinguished scholars, artists, or scientists, that aims to promote and maintain standards in its particular field.”
“Academy” of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences? Standards?
The greatest talents within this so-called “academy” are the folks behind the camera. Cinematography, effects, sets, costumes, music. Those folks deserve to be called artists and scientists, and deserve rewards for talent and ingenuity.
As for the actors, heh, well, they can do scripts. Nothing else.
Hee hee! I loved that bit.
99% of their movies fail the new standard.
HOLLYWOOD'S CERTIFIED DEMOCRAT DEGENERATES
FINANCED BILL CLINTON'S LEWINSKY SEX MESS
According to FEC Info, an Internet Web site (www.tray.com) that tracks federal political contributions, 176 individual donors actually contributed $10,000 or more to the lewinsky-era Clinton Legal Expense Trust fund through Dec 1999. Another 21 donors gave $10,000 in the first six months of 2000.
Thanks to Hollywood's generosity, a total of more than $2.2 million was raised in six months, which was notably more than was collected in funding during the previous four years of his presidencycombined. Hollywood producers and stars made up the bulk of the most generous givers. They included:
<><> Universal Studios tycoon Lew Wasserman and his wife, Edith, who have given $60,000;
<><>DreamWorks trio Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg, $20,000 each;
<><> producer Ron Burkle and his wife, Janet, $40,000;
<><> producers Peg and Bud Yorkin, $30,000;
<><> TV producer Norman Lear, $20,000.
Entertainment celebrities and executives giving $10,000 included:
<><> singers Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand;
<><> actors Michael Douglas and Tom Hanks;
<><> director Ron Howard; producer Gail Zappa;
<><>Black Entertainment Television founder Robert L. Johnson.
When Bill Clinton was at the height of the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal, Hollywood was by his side, offering donations for his legal fees, and one significant donor was a man who is now going through his own sex scandalHarvey Weinstein.
Billionaire Harvey Weinstein raised $1,422,683 for federal candidates and political entities between 1990-2016. Thats small potatoes for his 27 years of rank Democratism, sucking up to feminism and upholding so-called abortion rights as he rampaged and assaulted young women. Adds up to about $5300 a year. Something tells me there are a lot of cash payments off-the-record being paid. (hat tip outpostinmass2) Crunching the numbers as outpost did does give us a sharper look at the political money game as played by the conniving Clintons.
Harvey also gave a bundle to the nefarious tax-exempt Clinton Foundation and perhaps to offshoots of the Clintons tax-free entities.
Did Harvey's donations to the C/F go to "do-good projects"? Or did they make a circuitous route? Maybe landing back into the Clintons eternal political scams?
<><> How did the Hollywood elite list payments to Clinton's sex defense fund on their tax returns?
<><>How did the "DreamWorks" trio, Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg, list their 60,000 dollars to Clinton's sex defense fund?
<><>How did BET list its contribution to Clinton on its corporate statements?
<><> Did Harvey's company list these payments as "business expenses?"
The biggie is the tax element.
<><> Did donors deduct it as a business expense,
<><> was it included in assets, payments listed on organization balance sheets as a "liability?"
<><> Did Clinton document it as "income"?
<><> Were the donors given a tax-free certificate from the Clinton Foundation?
standards of decency”
