The Golden Globes have traditionally been a celebration, a good time and, frequently, a punchline. But they have had their political moments as well, like last year’s speech by Meryl Streep, when she spoke forcefully against then President-elect Donald Trump, who the next morning tweeted that Streep was “overrated.”
This year, there’s something else brewing – in BLACK. The 75th Golden Globes on Sunday night are shaping up to be the most prominent and public display yet for the “MeToo” movement that’s swept through the entertainment world and left a trail of disgraced men in its wake. Out of solidarity with the victims of sexual harassment and assault, many women have said they will be dressing in black for the Globes.
Allison Janney, a supporting actress nominee for the Tonya Harding tale “I, Tonya,” said earlier this week. “I will be in a black dress and be proud to be standing there with the other actresses.” The aim is to ensure that the spotlight remains on the film industry’s endemic gender imbalances.
