"Golden Globes" 2018: Impassioned calls for women to speak up


Sexual harassment (mostly heterosexual) and #MeToo was a major theme tonight on NBC’s “Golden Globes” ceremony, especially with a keynote speech from Oprah Winfrey.  The NBC News principal story is here. Many observers saw her speech as indicating she would run for president in 2020. 

One director said he gave back some of his salary so that female directors could be paid more.
  
There were also calls for more directorial roles for women.


Here is the New York Times complete list of winners in “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri” and “Lady Bird”.

I didn’t notice any awards for “The Good Doctor”. 

There was also a nasty incident of "virtue signaling" (and shaming people into conformity on supporting a politically correct cause openly) involving Blanc Blanco, as explained on "Intellectual Takeout" by John Miltimore.
