The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced Saturday though a press release that its board of governors had voted “well in excess” of the two-thirds majority needed to kick out producer Harvey Weinstein, dogged by decades of allegations of sexual harassment and assault.

The Academy hopes to send a message that “the era of … sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment” in the movie business is over.

That would be a good start.
