Bill Cosby, Roman Polanski expelled from US film Academy

Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski have been expelled from the US Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

TV star Cosby was convicted of sexual assault last month. 
Director Polanski admitted statutory rape of a 13 year-old in 1977.
Producer Harvey Weinstein was kicked out last year, following numerous allegations of sexual assault.
The academy said its board members made the latest decision after a vote on Tuesday.
