Zoe Kravitz, who is supporting her show,Big Little Lies, as it was nominated for Best TV Limited Series or Motion Picture made for TV, joined the sea of black in a simple, strapless number. She accessorized the look with emerald earrings, joining a number of women on the red carpet who did so, which was thought to be a symbol of hope. The 29-year-old has long been a proponent of women in Hollywood, telling Elle in 2015, "This is an industry that has been run by men for so long and we can't expect them to speak for us, because they really don't know. It's time for women to start writing our own sh*t, directing our own sh*t, producing our own sh*t. We have to start doing it."
TheBlack-ishstar, whose show was nominated for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy and whose on-screen husband, Anthony Anderson, was nominated for Best Actor Television Series, Musical or Comedy, wore black from head to toe. She has been supporting the Time's Up movement on social media, , "The clock’s been ticking on the abuse of power. I stand in solidarity with women across every industry to say #TIMESUP on abuse, harassment, and assault. #TIMESUP on oppression and marginalization. #TIMESUP on misrepresentation and underrepresentation."
Jessica Chastain, who was nominated for Best Actress Motion Picture, Drama for her role inMolly's Game, headed to the show with her bestie, and former co-star, Octavia Spencer (who also wore black). On the way to the show she explained her outfit choice on Instagram Stories. “So we are wearing black to stand in solidarity with our sisters – women and men all over the world who suffered sexual harassment in the work force," she said. "Time’s up on the abuses of power!”
Meryl Streep, nominated for her role inThe Post, brought Ai-jen Poo, the executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, as her date to the show. "I think people are aware, now, of a power imbalance, and it's something that leads to abuse," Meryl told E!. "It's led to abuse in our own industry, and it's led to abuse across the domestic workers' field of work. It's in the military, it's in Congress, it's everywhere. And we want to fix that. And we feel sort of emboldened in this particular moment to stand together in a thick black line dividing then from now."
TheBig Little Liesactress, who was nominated for Best Actress, Limited Series or Motion Picture made for TV, spoke about her decision to spearhead the initiative on the red carpet, telling NBC, “It’s just became clear that with all of the news that’s been coming out about our industry and every industry that it couldn’t just be business as normal,” she said. “We really wanted to stand up and do something for all people and say that time’s up for abuse in the workplace.”
Viola Davis, who wore a sleek, black, Brandon Maxwell dress, walked the red carpet with her husband, Julius Tennon, who also wore black. “I’m here because I hear the voices of women who said, ‘Me too,’ — which, one of them was me,” theHow to Get Away With Murderstar told Al Roker. “I hear those voices, those people who nameless faceless, every day, who don’t have a platform … to talk about their sexual assault and rape."
Ava DuVernay proudly wore all black on the red carpet. "Last time I was at the Golden Globes, it was as a Best Director nominee for SELMA and it was all about #OscarSoWhite," she wrote on Instagram. "Tonight, it’s to celebrate @oprah and it’s all about #TimesUp. Let’s keep these conversations going. It’s a start. And we have to start somewhere. Here’s as good a place as any."
Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones posed with their date, activist Saru Jayaraman. On the red carpet, Amy explained to The Los Angeles Times why she wore black, saying, "Sometimes it represents the ending of something, [but] we’re showing solidarity and leaning into the beginning of something." Saru added, "Black is the most powerful color. Black is power. Woman are powerful."
TheWonder Womanstar praised all of the black on the red carpet, gushing, “This is wonderful. We should all wear black always… it just looks so beautiful.”
