Analysis: Harvey Weinstein thanked in Oscar Speeches more often than God



A 2015 survey of nearly 1,400 Oscar acceptance speeches found that Harvey Weinstein is thanked more frequently than God on Hollywood’s special day.

According to the study conducted by Vocativ, Weinstein came in with the second most nods in Oscar speeches after Steven Spielberg. God came in at No. 6 on their list.

God came in at No. 6 on their list.

“Sixth on the list is God, who’s never produced, directed or acted in a film, unless you think he was working through Morgan Freeman in Evan Almighty,” Vocativ reported.

Weinstein was fired Sunday from the company that bears his own name after a massive scandal broke about the major Democratic donor’s history of sexual harassment and misconduct. Harvey’s younger brother and co-Chairman Bob Weinstein and COO David Glasser are now temporarily running the business.

“In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of The Weinstein Company – Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar – have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately,” the board of the company said in a statement.

In a statement last week, Weinstein had apologized for the way in which he “behaved with colleagues in the past,” admitting that it “caused a lot of pain.”

Among Weinstein’s accusers is actress Ashley Judd, who notoriously went on an unhinged rant about President Donald J. Trump after the inauguration — but maintained her silence for two decades about the creep who could assist her career.

In fact, Judd proved Trump’s point about how when men are rich and powerful there are some women who will allow them to have their way with them — telling Weinstein that if he “wanted to touch her, she would first have to win an Oscar in one of his movies,” the New York Times reported.

The Weinstein Company is reportedly set to change their name, after it was “irreversibly tainted,” Fox News reported early Monday morning.
