There was something clearly funereal about the Golden Globes this year.No, not 101-year-old Kirk Douglas being rolled onto the phase in a wheelchair. All the black. All over you looked, women in black dresses, males in black tuxedoes– lots of with black shirts and black bow ties. The entire affair looked like a wake for Hollywood, which, on second idea, seems about ideal for the year Tinseltown simply had.But the red carpet was still red (how disgraceful! The color of strumpets!), and the stars simply couldn’t wait to get on their (most likely black) soapboxes to decry everything about Hollywood (as they wore millions in jewels, dined on roasted sea bass and swilled champagne into the night in the extravagant Beverly Hills Hotel).
Hosts on E! during the red-carpet pre-show said they weren’t asking the basic concern: “Who are you using?” Rather, they boasted, they were asking starlets “Why are you wearing black?” They understood the response, obviously, however they asked nonetheless. Every elite starlet said they wore the color of grieving to commemorate the empowerment of females (duh).
One very powerful woman discovered the entire exercise to be unimportant fakery.Actress Rose McGowan
— who began the whole movement versus motion picture mogul Harvey Weinstein– was seeing the affair. She saw a post on Twitter from fellow starlet Asia Argento, one of the ladies to speak out against Weinstein.”Nobody needs to forget that you were the very first one who broke the silence,”Asia wrote. “Anybody who attempts to diminish your work is a giant and an enemy of the movement. You provided me the guts to speak out. I am on your side until I die.”Said McGowan,” And not one of those expensive individuals wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. “– rose mcgowan (@rosemcgowan )< a href ="https://twitter.com/rosemcgowan/status/950174820498522112?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw" > January 8, 2018″Hollywood fakery.”Nailed it.Some of the night’s top stars are certainly guilty of that. Meryl Streep, who worked with Weinstein many times
prior to lots of women accused him
of whatever from unsuitable touching to rape, claims she didn’t understand a thing about the powerful producer’s proclivity to abuse women.mms.jpg And the star of the night, Oprah Winfrey, also worked
times with Weinstein. Photos of her with the supposed sex abuser rapidly made the rounds on the web, like this one:op. jpg McGowan made headlines last month for slamming actresses such as Meryl Streep for deciding to wear black in protest of sexual harassment. Before the flashy celebration, McGowan took direct target at Hollywood’s most well known icon.”Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who gladly worked for The Pig Beast, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent demonstration,”she tweeted.” YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no genuine modification. I despise your hypocrisy.”Pertain to think about it, forget Oprah in 2020. Possibly McGowan should make a run for the White House.
