In solidarity with the “Time’s up” campaign to fight sexual harassment at workplace, Hollywood film and television stars dressed up in their finest black dresses at the Golden Globes 2018 – it is something that has never happened ever before.
The 75th Golden Globes red carpet for 2018 turned out to be a bigger deal than the actual event because everyone wore black, the women, the men, the film stars, the television stars, the press – everyone. Everyone present at the Golden Globes decided that they all believed in gender equality as a human right and Hollywood stood up against sexual harassment at workplaces – supporting the Time’s up campaign. Golden Globes are generally showcase of art, glamour and stardom, however, female empowerment was the theme of last evening and Hollywood, for once, halted and said “time’s up”.
From posh tailored tuxedos to flowy gowns, everyone was wearing black, and at the award ceremony, there was one thing that was unavoidable: voicing against Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment cases and many that came after that. It all started with the idea of #MeToo moment, which was considered to be a toothless gimmick in the beginning – but we all know what it has revealed today. Some 300 actors and actresses, entertainment legends, directors, producers and media people together called for an ambitious and strong fight against sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry, in the country and all across the world.
Time’s Up campaign received support of superstars like Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Zac Efron, Gal Gadot, Patty Jenkins, Kit Harington, Kendall Jenner, Emma Stone, Nichole Kidman, Emilia Clarke – just to name a few. The show has ended, everyone headed to their homes – but the memory of 75th Golden Globes will linger, it will remind the entire world of how we need to fight against abuse and harassment in any form at workplaces and pretty much anywhere. Black will remind us, that we all have tolerated enough and now the “time’s up”.
