Early Weinstein accuser Asia Argento on Golden Globes: 'I was excluded'

8 thoughts about the 75th Golden Globes

People were quick to point out that Donald Trump has been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct by as many as 17 women.

Every major female celebrity wore black on the normally colorful red carpet to show support for the Time's Up $15 million campaign launched last week to support victims of sexual harassment in the workplace. They're part of the word of tech and politics and business. That job fell nearly entirely to women.

Television viewers enjoy watching the pre-Golden Globe Awards show, and this portion will start at 3 PM Pacific. Here is a summary of the awards given out and the great moments shared. Namely, that the burden of fighting sexual harassment and abuse continues to fall upon women.

Nicole Kidman, who also picked up a Golden Globe for her role in "Big Little Lies", told the audience: "I do believe and I hope we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them".

It was a lead that few men followed. We are all overcoming.

On another note, Oprah will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award this year. In their speeches, James Franco, Ewan McGregor, Guillermo del Toro, Aziz Ansari and Sam Rockwell were among the winners who avoided the movement that otherwise dominated the evening. "I don't, I don't", she reportedly said backstage when asked if she planned to run. "The Handmaid's Tale" later added the award for best TV series, drama.


Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King, is downplaying any suggestion that Winfrey might run for president.

Late night comedian and Golden Globes host Seth Meyers promised to address the issue of systemic sexual harassment prior to the awards show, while also celebrating achievements in Hollywood throughout the past year.

She took us into her mother's living room, where she watched the 1964 Academy Awards in the "cheap seats".

Oprah Winfrey on Sunday declared a "new day" for women and girls facing down abusive men as she delivered a stirring speech at the Golden Globes. "What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool that we all have", Winfrey said, expressing her appreciation for the women who have come forward but also pointing out the voices of women whose "names we will never know". We have people who appreciate you and others that don't", she added."The designer Atria Couture did an unbelievable job with my dress and I appreciate them for dressing me. Many of them were accompanied by activists; women who had made powerful impacts on their respective causes.

The industry's elite turned the red carpet black for the Globes, eschewing bright colours in a fashionable repudiation of disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein and others ensnared in allegations of misconduct. "I know it's hard but #TIMESUP for your dad too". In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Williams repeatedly turned the conversation to Burke and her work, even as Seacrest tried to turn the conversation to Williams' nomination. Spielberg said: "I think we need a mindful, empathetic human being in the White House who understands people and puts people ahead of their own ideas of power and self-aggrandizement - and I think Oprah has already proved her capacity for selflessness".
