The organisation that awards the Oscars has approved standards of conduct for its members. It follows the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voting to expel Harvey Weinstein in October, following allegations of sexual assault made against him. CEO Dawn Hudson told members the Academy has no place for those who abuse their power and status.

All 8,427 members will be expected to abide by the new guidelines. Weinstein, 65, has apologised for some aspects of his behaviour but insisted that any sexual contacts he had were consensual, and he denies accusations of criminal sexual harassment, rape and sexual assault. Hudson wrote the academy members a letter on standards of conduct, which has been widely published and reproduced.
