Gibson should be nominated but the Academy wont based on the usual politics. It's the same as the way they blocked Lucas when the original trilogy was released and Spielberg was shunned for a short time for working with him.

What I don't understand is where are the lesions of the accuser if the couple had oral sex exclusively. I understand that mouth ulcers/cold sores/Herpes Simplex I, can be transmitted through genital/oral contact so does this person have mouth ulcers?

Harvey wants to dismiss a fact abt Dr Adams and other doctors ..they didn't kil, He didn't die under their watch. What others have done is only relevant because he wants to confuse the issue.. the bottom line Mj never had any @ home in a drawer until Murray came along.

Whether or not Mel Gibson is an abuser/deadbeat dad/racist etc., does not impact whether or not he is a good actor. The Academy Awards are supposed to judge a skill, it is not a personality.

Roman Polanski pled guilty to the charge of "Unlawful Sexual Intercourse with a minor" has been nominated for an Academy Award and has won Golden Globes.

Multiple other celebrities have been found guilty of possession, DUIs and so forth but have Academy Awards.

If they fault Mel, they run the risk of saying that certain crimes are okay and others not. I hesitate to believe that they will see child molestation as less bad than drug possession.

What true legal standing does the Herpes case have?

Daks would have sex with a gorilla with herpes for $47.98 and a box of raisenettes.

do you think the amount is so high because it's a woman who contracted herpes, and giving birth is dangerous with an outbreak?
