Kevin Spacey Stripped Of Upcoming Emmy Award Honor


Kevin Spacey‘s day just continues to get worse.

After disturbing allegations surfaced last night, followed by even more today, Netflix announced that it would be pulling the plug on House of Cards after its sixth and final season. Granted, sources say that this decision has been long on the cards (pun intended!), but the timing is certainly suspicious.

Other Spacey-related projects remain in play for now – though we’re hearing that some of them may be in trouble – but one thing that certainly won’t be happening anymore is the actor receiving an upcoming honor that was set to be awarded to him at a ceremony on November 20th.

The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences was supposed to honor Kevin Spacey with the International Emmy Founders Award, recognizing him as “one of the great multi-dimensional talents” who “crosses cultural boundaries to touch humanity.” Now, however, they’ve changed gears – unsurprisingly – releasing the following statement to explain their decision:

“The International Academy has announced today that in light of recent events it will not honor Kevin Spacey with the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award.”

At the time of writing, Spacey has yet to issue a response to any of this, addressing only Anthony Rapp’s story late last night. As the storm continues to swirl, however, and the situation gets worse and worse, we imagine that we’ll hear from him quite soon.

Until then, however, feel free to chime in below with your thoughts on Kevin Spacey and the allegations he’s facing.
