If Harvey Weinstein thought that the New Year would distract people from his monstrous behavior, he was very wrong. While 2017 may have been the worst year of the 65-year-old movie mogul's life to date, 2018 already looking worse.
It all started with the Golden Globes - an event that had helped bolster his 30-year career. Because of his alleged sexual misconduct, the disgraced movie producer was the name on everybody's lips, and, for once, it was for all the wrong reasons.
