The Golden Globes delivered a powerful, concerted message about and from women, addressing sexual harassment and gender inequity. Social media analytics experts at Talkwalker offer metrics on last night’s ceremony, dominated by messages of solidarity with people who have been victims of sexual abuse and the opportunity to champion Time’s Up – Hollywood’s new initiative to get victims of sexual harassment in low-income jobs legal help, and push anti-harassment legislation.
Oprah Winfrey’s stirring and powerful acceptance of the Cecil B. DeMille Award delivered the peak buzz on social media and made us wonder if we were watching a preview of Oprah 2020. As the first black woman to take home the award, she honored the past – like the late civil rights hero Recy Taylor. And made us hopeful for the future – when no one has to say #MeToo.
