MUMBAI—Actress-activist Dia Mirza has lauded the 75th Golden Globe Awards ceremony for highlighting issues that matter to drive change.
"This is how change happens! When a collective voice of reason unites to speak and stand by the truth. What a powerful, meaningful Golden Globes! Times Up, Me too. Oprah, thank you for speaking for every woman," Dia Mirza tweeted on Jan. 8.
The awards ceremony, held in Los Angeles on Jan. 7 night, saw several celebrities speak up against sexual harassment and gender inequality – issues that have been raging in Hollywood in recent times. Celebrities also chose to flaunt all-black ensembles and wore 'Time's Up' badges to signify a silent protest.
Oprah Winfrey, who became the first black woman to receive the Cecil B. DeMille award, delivered a rousing speech calling for a world free of sexual abusers where nobody ever has to say 'Me too' again.
