Awards season comes in the wake of Hollywood being rocked by multiple sexual misconduct scandals.
Producer Harvey Weinstein was toppled with a series of stories in October in which dozens of women accused him of various allegations ranging from sexual harassment to rape.
Through a spokesperson Weinstein has denied any allegations of non-consensual sex.
He was fired from The Weinstein Company, which was for a long time one of the more influential film production companies and a frequent player during awards season.
The Weinstein Company does not have any projects in contention this season.
Since then, multiple men in Hollywood have faced similar allegations and the conversation about inequality in the industry has intensified.
“Late Night” host Seth Meyers will preside over the awards ceremony — set to air January 7th on NBC.
