Harvey Weinstein, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, has been fired from his own company after allegations of an ongoing pattern of sexual harassment and assault against young women looking for their big breaks were exposd. An appalling report in the New Yorker details the accounts of at least seven women who say Harvey forced them into explicitly sexual situations, often after they repeatedly told him no.

Sunday night’s 2017 Teen Choice Awards almost had a lot of awards to hand out. The show on Fox had tons of categories with big name nominees, and some of the winners walked away with a lot of hardware.
Ariana Grande muscled through a tight field to win Choice Female Artist. The “Dangerous Woman Tour” won Choice Summer Tour. Ariana was crown Choice Snapchatter and Choice Changemaker, as well. The mix of love for Ariana on- and off-stage makes her a clear winner with choosy teens. Emma Watson didn’t fare as well in social categories, but she won plenty of trophies for her on-screen work.
Her role as Belle in “Beauty and the Beast” was a TCA powerhouse, with a win for Choice Fantasy Movie and a win for Emma as Choice Fantasy Movie Actress. She split two wins with her beastly co-star Dan Stevens for Choice Movie Ship and Choice Lip Lock. Luckily, Emma didn’t make it into the Choice Summer Movie actress category, where Zendaya got the win for “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
But the night’s real showdown was anything but kissing and shipping. Camila Cabello and Fifth Harmony didn’t go toe-to-toe in any categories, but both were nominated for plenty of trophies. Who pulled out the biggest win–the “Havana” singer or her former girl group?
The nominations are out for the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Fox, and it looks like one star’s Hollywood dreams are coming true. Bella Thorne campaigned hard for a 2017 nod, and she got one.
Bella is the only actress not from the show “Pretty Little Liars” who is nominated for “Choice Drama TV Actress” for her work on “Famous In Love.” Hopefully, it goes better than last year for her.
But Bella can’t hold a candle to Hailee Steinfeld, who’s up in the categories for “Choice Female Artist,” “Choice Song Female Artist” for “Most Girls,” and “Choice Drama Movie Actress” for “Edge of Seventeen.”
Other notable nominees include Harry Styles for “Choice Rock Artist,” Emma Watson in two actress categories and Rihanna for “Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Artist.” But the real fun will be the showdowns that come when it’s time to hand out the surfboards.
Emma Watson’s political leanings merged once again with her film career on Sunday night as the actress found herself at the center of the latest culture war over gender, feminism and the arts. As the winner of “Best Actor in a Movie” award from the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, Emma kicked off debate over the award’s new gender neutral status with her acceptance speech.
“The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience,” Emma said to open her speech.
“MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone,” she continued. “But to me it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories.”
The Emma that no one pays attention to has started her own book club–like another actress that goes by the same name. Early Thursday morning, Emma Roberts announced the first book that would be featured in her online book club which officially launched on Wednesday.
Emma Watson is taking girl power to the bank. According to Marie Claire, the outspoken feminist star of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” was paid $3 million up front to play Belle in the movie. But she could make five times that if that the movie does well enough at the box office.
