The 90th Academy Awards took place on March 4, and there were many moments that contributed to the #Metoo and Time’s Up movements. Some included Jimmy Kimmel’s opening monologue that paid tribute to the Time’s Up movement, and a short film was presented by Salma Hayek, Ashley Judd, and Annabella Sciorra. The short film conveyed an influential message on sexual harassment in the entertainment industry. The most noteworthy moment; however, was Frances McDormand.

Frances McDormand was the lead actress in Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri and was nominated and won the Best Actress award. During her acceptance speech, McDormand placed her Oscar on the floor as a sign to say she had more important things to do at the moment. Then, she followed by asking every single woman in the room who was nominated for an award to stand up. The crowd then broke out into applause, and McDormand concluded with an unforgettable note. “Look around, women, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed. Don’t talk to us about it at the parties tonight. Invite us to your offices in a couple of days, or you can come to ours, whatever suits you best, and you can hear all about them.”
