When tuning into the Golden Globes this year, be prepared for a whole lot of black on the red carpet. While Time Magazine may have named The Silence Breakers speaking out against sexual assault and harassment as Person of the Year for 2017, the movement is only just getting started and many of our favorite actresses are ready to shepherd it into the new year.
E! News has reported that at least 30 actresses are planning to wear all-black to the 2018 Golden Globes ceremony to make a statement against sexual assault and harassment in the entertainment industry. Jackie and Claudia Oshry also confirmed the news on their show The Morning Breath.
While none of the actress have been specified, many of the nominees, including Jessica Chastain, Saoirse Ronan, Meryl Streep, and Reese Witherspoon, have all shared experiences with or have spoken out against sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood. E! News added that the women taking part in the statement — nominees, attendees, and presenters — see it as an act of solidarity, standing with those who’ve been sexually assaulted or harassed.
Since The New York Times and The New Yorker first published numerous allegations against Harvey Weinstein, many others, including Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K., Brett Ratner, Amazon’s Roy Price, James Tobak, Jeffrey Tambor, Russell Simmons, and numerous others have faced sexual assault and misconduct allegations.
We’ll find out who is wearing black in solidarity when the Golden Globes are held on January 7th.
