Monday Muse: the Women of the Golden Globes

The Golden Globes was a truly special night for women. In addition to almost everyone showing up in all black as part of the #MeToo movement, women from Laura Dern to Natalie Portman made their voices heard about speaking the truth, fighting for power, and supporting one another. It was definitely the most empowered I’ve felt after watching an awards show, though that isn’t saying much!

Some of my favorite looks:

And some of my favorite moments:

Barbara Streisand reminding us all that a woman hasn’t won for Best Director in 34 years, which is nuts. When she won for Yentl in 1984, she became the only woman to win Best Director ever.

Natalie Portman calling out HFPA for the all-male nominees for Best Director:

Laura Dern’s acceptance speech about silence, truth, and support:

Frances McDormand’s ballsy, no-f’s-given acceptance speech for her role my favorite movie of the year, 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri:

Every second of Oprah’s speech when she became the first black woman to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award. She’s a tv personality I’d actually vote for to be our president…

Please consider making a donation to Time’s Up, the legal defense fund that will “provide subsidized legal support to women and men who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace and while in pursuit of their careers.”

Time is up for men like Harvey Weinstein, but ladies, our time is now.
