#GoldenRobes

2017 was a banner year for women and minority filmmakers: films like Lady Bird, Get Out, Wonder Woman, Girls Trip and Mudbound enjoyed phenomenal critical praise and box office success. These films were amongst the most beloved and talked about films of the year... but the Golden Globes snubbed their directors and nominated instead 5 (mostly white) male directors for the 2018 awards. We say: enough! We have decided to throw a Twitter party the weekend of the Globes to celebrate the achievements of women and minority directors... You can join and follow the discussions using the hashtag #GoldenRobes. We also want to keep the pressure on other award shows and we're keen to find out who will be nominated for the Academy Awards – their voting process starts, incidentally, on Friday January 5th. Please help us make some noise and celebrate the work of those who have been egregiously neglected by award show juries.

  • Thank you for making #GoldenRobes a big success + what's next

    January 23, 2018
    Dear #GoldenRobes ambassadors,

    A WHOLEHEARTED thank you to each and every one of you for helping us spread the word about our #GoldenRobes awards.

    Here are some highlights from our campaign:
    • Following our Thunderclap, we had more than 2 million impressions on Twitter
    • 264 people voted for the #GoldenRobes (which is 171 more votes than the jury of the Golden Globes)
    • Get Out's Jordan Peele was the winner, with just ONE vote more than Mudbound's Dee Rees... 
    • Women and Hollywood wrote this amazing write-up about our campaign
    • As a result of this piece and a recommendation by Women and Hollywood's founder Melissa Silverstein, I was interviewed by BBC Radio Solent the day after the Golden Globes and I had an opportunity to speak with radio host Louisa Hannan about the need for more diversity in Hollywood! (Thank you Louisa & Melissa!)
    Cherry on the cake: at the actual Golden Globes ceremony, Natalie Portman called out the lack of female directors on live TV, announcing the Best Director nominees with the line: "And here are the all male nominees." This jab made headline news all around the world (we love you Natalie!)

    You may be wondering what is next. Well, Oscar nominations are announced today at 5:22 PST. We are keeping an eye out for who is nominated in the Best Director category, as well as best Cinematography. Rachel Morrison, who shot Mudbound, could become the first female cinematographer nominated for an Oscar. Yes, you read that correctly, in the 89 preceding editions of the Academy Awards, there has NEVER been a woman nominated for "Best Cinematography". It's about time!

    You can follow our reactions to the Academy Awards nominations on Twitter:
    Thank you again for your fantastic help!

    - Elena (+ Marley + Emma + Pierre)
