Two women who made sexual assault accusations against Harvey Weinstein, sparking the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, ripped the Golden Globes Awards on Sunday night for not being invited.
However, despite the big roles they played in why women wore black to Golden Globes on Sunday night, the women were not in attendance. Both McGowan and Argento admitted that their invitations to the high profile awards show might have gotten lost.
“I can only speak for myself but not only I wasn’t invited to the #GoldenGlobes: nobody asked my opinion about #TIMESUP or to sign the letter,” Argento, 42, tweeted Monday morning. “I support @TIMESUPNOW even though I was excluded from it. Guess I am not POWERFUL or HOLLYWOOD enough. Proud to work behind the scenes.”
On Sunday, Argento tweeted to McGowan,
“No one should forget that you were the first one who broke the silence. Anyone who tries to diminish your work is a troll and an enemy of the movement. You gave me the courage to speak out. I am on your side until I die.”
“And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. I have no time for Hollywood fakery, but you I love, @AsiaArgento.”
Actress Rosanna Arquette, who also accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, tweeted to a follower,
“No we weren’t invited. Annabella [Sciorra], Daryl [Hannah], Mira [Sorvino] … none of us were.”
Arquette’s sister, Oscar winner Patricia Arquette, replied,
“That’s not cool-All of you should have been included.I wasn’t asked either but who cares! It’s great they are doing it & we will too!”
Womanhood and safe work environments were celebrated at the 75th Golden Globes. Many are still praising Oprah Winfrey’s speech where she called out sexual harassment in politics and in Hollywood.
