Emmy Rossum tweeted her pleasure with the decision, writing, “Amen, the academy!!!”
Josh Gad also addressed another perceived obstacles, tweeting, “So now that we’ve dealt with Weinstein what are we going to do about Trump?”
“Proud of the Academy!” wrote Mia Farrow, whose son Ronan authored the New Yorker expose. “There are others- but hopefully we are witnessing the end of an awful era.”
Ron Perlman wrote, “As a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences I am proud of their decision to expel Harvey Weinstein.”
Rene Auberjonois wrote, “Now that the Academy has acted, it’s time for Congress to step up and remove the Predator in Chief.”
