Kevin Spacey Loses Prestigious Award After Accusation That He Tried to Seduce a 14-Year-Old

Kevin Spacey has lost out on a special lifetime achievement TV award after allegations that he made sexual advances to a teenage boy 30 years ago.

Spacey, who has had a long acting career and most recently won acclaim for starring in Netflix’s “House of Cards,” was slated to receive the International Emmy Founders Award in a ceremony next month. The International TV Academy has said that the award is being withdrawn “in light of recent events.”

After Harvey Weinstein’s long history of sexual harassment and rape allegations recently became public, more people in Hollywood have been coming forward with accounts of attempted assault or worse.

Fellow actor Anthony Rapp has claimed that when he was 14, a 26-year-old Spacey invited him to a party and later in the night, got him alone and tried to get him into bed.

Netflix has since announced that “House of Cards” is ending after its sixth season.

GLENN: A martyr for social change. That's apparently how Harvey Weinstein sees himself. Not as an alleged rapist, serial molester, but as some sort of warrior for change all of a sudden. According to the Hollywood Insider, Weinstein is trying to spin his disgrace into a teachable moment. He's allegedly telling his friends, you know, I was born to take a fall like this, for this behavior, in order to change the world.

Wow. Sociopath? Perhaps. Completely ridiculous, absolutely.

But he is right in this: He did change the world. Every day since his scandals came to light, it seems like another Hollywood figure is outed for their inappropriate behavior. I'm waiting for this to spread to other dirtbag places, like, oh, I don't know, Washington, DC.

But it remains in Hollywood right now. This week, Kevin Spacey was accused of making sexual advances on a 14-year-old in the 1980s. And the fallout from this accusation could destroy his career.

Netflix quickly announced, next season of House of Cards -- deeply troubled by last night's news concerning Kevin Spacey, and we're going to cancel it.

Now they're saying that they made that decision long ago. But it didn't stop Netflix from taking the opportunity to create the image that they made this announcement based on his behavior.

Nobody wants to be associated with somebody who assaults another person. Ever. Spacey's behavior is unacceptable, if it's true. Weinstein's behavior, wildly unacceptable. And hopefully, Hollywood has learned a hard, painful lesson, and all of us have as well, there are no secrets left in the world. However, we really need to learn something called due process. Due process exists for a reason.

And I'm afraid that especially on Halloween, if we're not careful, this is going to turn into a witch hunt.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.
