Ils ont aussi assuré que la guilde allait prendre les mesures nécessaires pour s'assurer que « le harcèlement et les abus sexuel soient éradiqués de l'industrie du cinéma ». Le même jour, l'Académie américaine du cinéma, responsable de la remise des Oscars, a décidé d'exclure le producteur qui avait contribué à faire remporter 81 statuettes aux films qu'il a produit. Dans le même temps, Le New York Times, qui est le premier journal a avoir sorti le scandale, poursuit son enquête et vient de dévoiler que l'ancien baron d'Hollywood avait payé de grosses sommes à certaines actrices qu'il avait harcelées ou abusées afin d'obtenir leur silence.
