Oscars Organizers Say The Show Will Focus On Films, Not #MeToo

Producers showcasing their work at this year's Academy Awards say amid the #MeToo movement, they want this ceremony to be about the films.
Movies may have taken a back seat at recent awards ceremonies.
Many actresses wore black to the 2018 Golden Globe Awards to protest sexual misconduct. And Oprah Winfrey gave an acceptance speech highlighting social issues that was so rousing, it prompted questions of a 2020 presidential run.
