Frontline's'Weinstein documents mogul's history on eve of Oscars

"With the Oscars on Sunday, you know there's going to be people arriving at the awards ceremony that may have covered up Harvey's deeds".

Ahead of the 90 Academy Awards on Sunday, a Harvey Weinstein statue entitled "Casting Couch" has appeared on Hollywood Boulevard.

The all-gold statue features Weinstein sitting on his infamous casting couch, which is propped on top of a red carpet.

Called Casting Couch, the statue was unveiled on Thursday by Los Angeles-based street artist Plastic Jesus.

The aim of the installation was to place the spotlight on the crisis of sexual abuse in the Hollywood entertainment industry and on the disgraced film producer.

You might also know of someone who had weight loss success on one of these diets and another who didn't lose a single pound. The other group went low-fat, starting with no more than 20 grams of fat per day, the equivalent to a handful of nuts.

"Casting Couch" follows conservative street artist Sabo's contributions earlier in the week: three billboards saying, "And the Oscar for biggest pedophile goes to..."; "We all knew and still no arrests" and "Name names on stage or shut the hell up!" "There may be people there that are victims of Harvey that still haven't spoken out". "But as everybody knows, Hollywood, like so many other industries, has this dark underbelly which often goes ignored, or in this case has even been covered up and worse", he said.

Alongside fellow artist Joshua "Ginger" Monroe, the project took Plastic Jesus two months to complete.

It will be on display this weekend, weather permitting.

Harvey Weinstein's perpetual Oscars presence will obviously not happen this year after a mountain of sexual misconduct allegations surfaced against the cinematic mogul. He has denied allegations of non-consensual sexual contact.

Plastic Jesus and Monroe were also responsible for producing naked statues of Mr Donald Trump that appeared in various American cities in 2016, before he was elected United States President.
