"All of the female actresses and attendees, or majority at least, who are going to the Golden Globes, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest". The Red Carpet will be all-black at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards will be voicing its support for victims as well.

"All female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns", a source told PEOPLE in response to rumours that female stars were planning to challenge the current status quo.

Hollywood has been rocked this year by accusations of assault against some of the industry's biggest names.

"This movement is spreading rampantly and pretty much all the nominated women and others attending are participating". Stylists who have already dealt with their clients's requests and fittings for dresses are reportedly scrambling to find black dresses.

Many Hollywood actresses have been vocal in rallying against sexual harassment since the story about allegations against famed producer Harvey Weinstein broke out.
