Stars take stand against harassment at Golden Globes

Golden Globes blackout

Red Carpet blackout at the 2018 Golden Globes

The answer? The issue will not be ignored - quite the opposite - and will be tackled in a variety of ways, as the Golden Globes are already showing tonight (January 7).

They are so amusing when they team up, and they basically showed everyone that they should be Golden Globes co-hosts next year.

"It's 2018 marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't".

This year's ceremony is seen as the first big opportunity for Hollywood to speak with one voice against a pervasive culture of misconduct brought to light by the downfall of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, unmasked as a serial predator.

Couples took to the red carpet at the event to show their support for the cause, and incidentally gave us some cute shots while they were out there.

Others have questioned what a uniform palette will actually achieve, forgetting the political power fashion can have - especially within the women's movement. In the early '30s, actors like Katharine Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, and Greta Garbo were all renowned for wearing pants, despite the fact that it was illegal for women in the USA to do so at the time.

While many fields are wide open, James Franco ("The Disaster Artist") is nearly certain to win best actor in a musical/comedy movie, according to Gold Derby, ahead of Daniel Kaluuya ("Get Out"). The suggested attire is being encouraged by the more than 1,000 women in entertainment behind the Time's Up initiative to combat sexual harassment and assault, which launched earlier this week.

You might not recognise some of their names, but, if anything, that makes this gesture more important.

This year, however, it was United States comedian's Seth Meyers' turn to take the reins (although he did enlist the help of a few of the stars to deliver some of his punch lines). But I have to admit when I first heard about a film where a naive young woman falls in love with a disgusting sea monster, I thought, "Aw, man. not another Woody Allen movie".

"The show goes on".

Actors Reese Witherspoon (left to right), Eva Longoria, Salma Hayek and Ashley Judd stop on the red carpet.

As Meyers himself acknowledged, this was a year that might have been better served by having a woman host.

At an awards show that saw red carpet protests and social activism aimed at gender and racial equality, Meyers took aim at the male stars in the room. It was refreshing and hopefully something that will be continued at ceremonies throughout this year and beyond.
