Other actors who sported black on the red carpet to show their solidarity against discrimination everywhere were also vocal about the red carpet blackout.
“I think a lot of people talking about wearing black, it can be construed as a somber color,” Golden Globe nominee Alison Brie said. “But actually the atmosphere is so celebratory and powerful. That’s what I’m all about baby!”
More than 300 people in the entertainment industry signed on to the Time’s Up initiative (spearheaded by Reese Witherspoon, America Ferrera, Eva Longoria and more) to fight sexual harassment, assault and inequality for women in all kinds of workplaces. It has raised more than $15 million for a legal defense fund for people who have experienced workplace harassment and encourages people everywhere to wear black to display unity and power.
The 75th annual Golden Globes were presented live on NBC from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on Sunday.
