And the award for ultimate hypocrisy goes to . . . the Hollywood class of 2018. This year’s Golden Globes were meant to be a defiant, vibrant celebration of a post-Weinstein industry, an awards ceremony about so much more than meaningless awards. We were promised a reckoning, the leveling of a male-dominated industry that institutionalized the rape, abuse and harassment of women for decades. Like so much Hollywood product, advance buzz was greatly exaggerated. Not one actor or actress, on the red carpet or on stage, made direct reference to their industry’s greatest monster — the one they boast of slaying yet still want to appease. In perhaps the night’s most twisted hosanna, 101-year-old Kirk Douglas was honored with a standing ovation and special award. It didn’t take long for Twitter to light up over Douglas’s long-rumored rape of Natalie Wood when she was just 16.
