You might have noticed that award season was a little different this year. Instead of the focus on the films, shows and the performances, the centre of attention was firmly on the #MeToo movement, industry sexism and female empowerment.
Hollywood might be combating sexism, but it definitely isn’t stopping calculation any time soon.
I’m told many public relations firms and entertainment industry agents were said to admire the way Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon handled the situation and felt that the way they delivered their award speeches was the perfect balance of graceful and meaningful without ever falling into preachy or entitled territory.
Apparently nominated clients were instructed to “follow Nicole and Reese’s lead” and the vast majority listened with the exception of this one A list actress, who may or may not have won the big one.
So, tell me, Gossipers:
Who is the one that didn’t listen?
Who are ones that did?
