Ridley Scott’s latest film chronicles the kidnapping of grandson J. Paul Getty’s grandson, and had to be back in a rush due to a scandal involving his actor Kevin Spacey.

The Golden Globes, awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), a small club of some 90 members compared to about 6,000 Academy members who vote in the Oscars, are less representative but still among the film awards and the most popular television.

They will be handed out on January 7th and are an indicator of films with good chances for the Oscars.

The glamor of these worldwide ceremonies, however, will be tarnished by the series of sex scandals unveiled in Hollywood since the beginning of the case of Harvey Weinstein, the producer accused by a hundred women of harassment, sexual assault or rape.

Filmmaker Brett Ratner, comedian and comedian Louis CK, and studio executives John Lasseter (Disney animated films) and Roy Price (Amazon) have also been charged with various abusive sexual behaviors, among many other personalities.
