Golden Globes Red Carpet Turns Black in Honor of #MeToo and Time’s Up Movements

Written by Tasneem Khan

Actresses and actors descending upon Sunday’s Golden Globes red carpet are dressed in black to ban together in support of the newly created Time’s Up initiative and the already widespread #MeToo movement. Instead of asking the awards-show staple question “Who are you wearing?” on the carpet, TV hosts and reporters will instead question why the stars are wearing black, to give the nominees and their guests the opportunity to spread the movement’s message. The black gowns represent Hollywood taking a stand against the numerous sexual harassment cases uncovered last year, declaring that time is up on inequality and mistreatment of women. Before the carpet, women in Hollywood encouraged their peers to join them via Instagram and Twitter announcements. Reese Witherspoon, Tracee Ellis Ross, Rashida Jones, Brie Larson and Tessa Thompson created a viral video together to urge those at the Globes to join them in wearing black.

The first Golden Globe award of the night went to one of Hollywood’s most powerful women, Nicole Kidman, for her performance in HBO’s The Big Little Lies.

Angelina Jolie and Catherine Zeta Jones were among the high profile stars to wear black at the Golden Globes in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Tracee Ellis Ross, Dakota Johnson and Jessica Biel all donned black gowns as they joined the Time’s Up protest in response to the Hollywood sex abuse scandal
