Golden Globes 2018: Bow Down to Frances F-ing McDormand

Posted on January 08, 2018

This woman is a take-no-bullshit force of nature and an actress of breathtaking talent when given the right role and material.

So, no. We’re not going to rip apart her nun’s habit. It’s fine. It’s who she is. We would never expect diamonds, stilletos and a smokey eye coming from her corner. She stood up there and was 110% herself. High fashion and frills would have been a mistake to attempt. Granted, we think she could’ve worn a comfy pantsuit and come off a little more chic in the process, but whatevs. She is who she is and for once, a major awards show wasn’t about the fashion.

She appears to be wearing navy blue, although that could be an effect of the harsh lighting on a black fabric. But the #TimesUp dress blackout shouldn’t be considered about enforcing rules and taking choice away from women. We don’t particularly feel comfortable judging anyone for not wearing black or attempting to conjure up reasons why they didn’t. At the end of the night, every woman should be considered free to make her own choices about how to signal her support – or whether she even wants to. For us, the speech more than made it clear where she stands on these matters.
