Gary Oldman's ex-wife: The Academy awards abusers

775129933TT00009_90th_Annua

Fiorentino had previously alleged that Oldman was physically and emotionally abusive to her during their marriage - including choking her and beating her in front of their two sons - although the actor was ultimately awarded full custody of both children after their divorce.

"I thought we had evolved", she continued.

He says he hasn't spoken to her since he was 13, explaining, "I was old enough to see that holding on to a relationship with her would damage my future, so stepping away for some time would be the only thing I saw fit". And now, he's an Oscar victor. But the academy came under scrutiny on Twitter Sunday evening after rewarding Oldman and former National Basketball Association star Kobe Bryant during the ceremony. The former Lakers star was charged with sexual assault in 2003.

He said: "I would like to thank my mother, who is older than the Oscars, she is 99 years young next birthday and she's watching the ceremony from the comfort of her sofa".

W. Va teachers strike still on after Senate votes to trim deal
They're saying we can't afford it. "I will not be a party to pitting our state employees against our teachers", Justice stated. But the procedural matters worked out for Senate leaders; the real bill with the 4% raise was voted on again, and passed.

Having for so always been "the biggest actor never to win the most important prize in show business", finally Gary Oldman has received his just rewards, for his lead performance in Darkest Hour.

Police investigated Fiorentino's claims, but no charges were filed. But some were disturbed to see Oldman win the award on a night that celebrated the empowerment of women with the Time's Up and #MeToo movements taking center stage. There was a lot of talk about celebrating women's achievements and honouring the #MeToo and Time's Up movements - but that was all it was.

Gary Oldman's son will NOT let his mother's long discredited accusations ruin his dad's moment of glory! The critically acclaimed Darkest Hour received six Academy Award nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling and Best Production Design. And Casey Affleck, who was essentially blacklisted from this year's ceremony although he was lauded last year in spite of having settled a pair of nasty sexual harassment suits. Breaking tradition, the show's producers asked Jodie Foster and Jennifer Lawrence to present. But many tweeted about the rape allegations instead. This marked the second win for the dystopian movie after previously being named the victor of Best Visual Effects category. But then just days before the Oscar voting closes, accusations of sexual misconduct against him were made public. And while the British actor's performance was raved about by critics, one person is speaking out against The Academy's decision. If you are amusing they go, "I never knew he could be funny". It's obvious many in Hollywood are willing to honour male artists for their art - regardless of their violent pasts.
