Time's Up Movement Dominated The Oscars
The 'Time's Up' movement has dominated the biggest event of the awards season.
The 90th Academy awards took place last night, with The Shape of Water winning best picture.
During her acceptance speech, best actress winner Frances McDormand asked every female nominee to stand.
E! presenter Ryan Seacrest was snubbed on the red carpet after abuse allegations came to light.
It is telling that on Hollywood's biggest night, the #Oscars, in the year of #MeToo and #TimesUp, that it will be Ryan Seacrest, a man accused of wrongdoing, who is being protected on the red carpet with a reported 30-second time delay in case attendees challenge him.— Tim Teeman (@TimTeeman) March 4, 2018
Host Jimmy Kimmel made a joke about the Oscar statue in his opening monologue:
While introducing the nominees, Emma Stone referenced the fact that Gretta Gerwig was the only female in the category.
However, many viewers slammed her for seemingly overlooking the significance of Jordan Peele’s nomination - as the only person of colour in the running.
Guillermo del Toro, an immigrant, was also deemed to be a progressive nomination.
Peak white feminism from Emma Stone. Pointing out that 4 of the nominees are men while ignoring that 2 of those men are minorities.— Nik Reed (@REEDandSTUFF) March 5, 2018
Meanwhile, Emma Watson debuted a 'Time's Up' tattoo.
But she's lucky it's temporary because there's an apostrophe missing!
