Golden Globes: #TimesUp and More

Over the weekend, the 75th annual Golden Globes, an award show hosted to honor American film and television, was held in Los Angeles, California. This year the majority of the attendees wore black in honor of the #TIMESUP movement which focuses on standing up for women who have come forth after facing sexual harassment, abuse and gender bias. Throughout the night many celebrities gave inspiring speeches about the movement using their on stage to provide insight and spread the word about sexual harassment and abuse.

“I loved how all the celebrities wore black in honor of the #TimesUp movement, but what I did not appreciate was how many celebrities who still work with directors who were accused of sexual miscunduct, like Woody Allen, still decided to wear black. In my opinion it was a tad bit hypocritical,” said junior Nelsa Tejada.

One of the most inspiring speeches given that night was Oprah Winfrey’s, which she delivered after accepting the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille award. She is the first African-American woman to win this award, something she realizes could serve as profound inspiration for he younger audience. “It is not lost on me that, at this moment, there is some little girl watching as I become the first black woman to be given the same award,” said Winfrey.

Throughout her inspiring speech, she mentioned that she hopes that the bravery of every woman who has stood up for herself will help foster a society where people will no fear coming forward. Many actresses, apart from wearing black, showed their support by bringing activists as their plus-ones. Actresses such as Emma Stone and Meryl Streep decided to bring along activists to show support for the #TimesUp movement.

“Oprah’ s speech was so inspiring. Like Winfrey implied in her speech, our history, the history of women, is being written now, right at this moment, and this was such an inspirational and important message,” sophomore Sophia Martinez said.
