This Is the Shocking Way Actresses Will Be Making a Statement at the Golden Globes
f you're at all plugged into the goings on of Hollywood, you probably know that the Golden Globes nominees were revealed earlier this week. Now's the perfect time to catch up on all the movies you haven't seen yet and start preparing for all the incredible red-carpet looks. However, there's a rumor going around that several actresses are collaborating on their outfits for the Golden Globes in order to make a very powerful statement. We love the plan!
Apparently, a number of actresses are going to be attending next year's Golden Globes wearing black.
According to Us Weekly, a small group of actresses planned to wear black at first, but as word got around more actresses have joined the black dress roster.
But why black?
Don't worry. It's for a worthy cause.
The black dresses will be a symbol of protest against the sexual harassment and assault that most of us laypeople learned this year has plagued the entertainment industry for years.
If they go through with their protest, it'll certainly be a striking display.
Obviously, stars have worn black outfits for years without it being tied to any sort of statement, but the additional meaning behind their garments this year will definitely have us paying attention to who is participating (and who isn’t).
As you'll no doubt remember, the revelations of the sexual harassment and assault issues within the entertainment industry were revealed back in October.
That was when The New York Times published a bombshell report revealing Harvey Weinstein’s decades of abusive behavior toward women in the industry.
Since then, dozens of men in Hollywood and other industries have been revealed as sexual predators. And you’d have to be living under a rock to miss the #MeToo movement that was sparked as a result of the news. The landscape of the world has changed drastically over the past few months, and it doesn’t appear to show any signs of stopping.
The news of actresses wearing black to protest sexual harassment comes on the heels of another inspiring award-show announcement, this one about the SAG awards.
Earlier this week, it was reported that next year’s SAG awards will be presented only by women.
The awards will also be hosted by Kristen Bell. A woman!
Reactions to the news that actresses will be wearing all black to the Golden Globes have been mixed, but largely supportive. Here’s what the Internet had to say…
