Three Harvey Weinstein accusers present together at Oscars

Judd, Sciorra and Hayek Pinault are among the more than 80 actresses and entertainment personnel who've accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault or rape in the past year.

Later that evening, Judd, Annabella Sciorra, and Salma Hayek took to the stage to introduce a reel of "trailblazers" discussing the need for more diversity in Hollywood.

Time's Up got its Oscar moment, as actresses Annabella Sciorra, Ashley Judd and Salma Hayek took the stage to declare the moment has come for new voices to be heard in cinema.

Judd and Sorvino were among the first women to make allegations against Weinstein. News pre-Oscars red carpet show, the network also reportedly set up a 30-second delay to protect him from any tough questions or awkward moments.

"I recall Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs".

He also evoked the now-disgraced name of Harvey Weinstein, whose sexual misconduct - revealed late previous year - launched the stunning reckoning that quickly spread to other areas of society. The Oscars is a great platform to talk about such an important issue in its broad strokes and I don't doubt that the majority of reporters have good intentions when asking actors about their experiences.
