Kelleth Cuthbert Wins the Golden Globes: Meet the Fiji Water Girl!

There was a major upset at the 2019 Golden Globes.

But she wasn’t merely standing on the red carpet.

She was posing over the shoulders of various celebrities, starting seductive daggers into the camera.

We’re not kidding!

Debra Messing Calls Out E! Over Gender Pay Gap on Red Carpet

Like many of the women who came dressed in black to the Golden Globes, a wardrobe of solidarity was only the most superficial part of Debra Messing’s agenda for the evening.

She is now being hailed as one of the evening’s most satisfying highlights. Why?

As you’ll see in the video below, Debra Messing calls out E!‘s alleged gender pay gap … while being interviewed by E!.

Sunday night’s Golden Globes were huge.

Oprah delivered a powerful speech that everyone is still talking about.

Oprah, Aziz Ansari, and Sterling K. Brown all made history with their respective awards — some long, long overdue milestones.

In her role as a presenter, Natalie Portman dragged the “all-male nominees” for Best Director, highlighting the bizarre gender gap and the women who were robbed for recognition of their incredible work.

Debra Messing didn’t wait until the ceremony to grab people’s attention.

She made her stand on the red carpet.

Speaking to Giuliana Rancic, Debra Messing had a lot to say about the #TimesUp movement (which grew out of #MeToo).

“…Its time is up. We want diversity. We want intersectional gender parity. We want equal pay.”

Those are all wonderful things! It’s great that she’s one of countless people demanding change in Hollywood.

And speaking of that whole equal pay thing …

“I was shocked to hear that E! doesn’t believe in paying their female co-host the same as their male co-host.”

Oh wow.

“I miss Catt Sadler, so we stand with her. And that’s something that can change tomorrow.”

See, just last month, Catt Sadler quit working at E! over an alleged pay gap issue.

She apparently learned that, though she’d worked at E! for 12 years, her cohost Jason Kennedy was earning about twice her salary, and that he’d been making that much for years.

The pay gap happens in all kinds of industries, folks. It can happen in entertainment news and anywhere else.

Many people hope that E! will make a fair offer to Catt Sadler that will allow her to return to work with dignity.

No one doubts that Jason Kennedy is worth what he’s making; they just want for Catt Sadler to be paid what she deserves.

And, by extension, for all women to be paid what they deserve rather than what employers believe that they can get away with.

For the record, Debra Messing was not the only star on E!‘s red carpet speaking out about Catt Sadler.

Eva Longoria, gorgeous and pregnant, told Ryan Seacrest:

“We support gender equity and equal pay, and we hope that E! follows that lead with Catt as well. We stand with you, Catt.”

The fact that so many actresses wore black in solidarity and spoke about such important issues is a real sign of progress.

That is not to say that the Golden Globes went off without a hitch, however.

One subject of continuing controversy is creepy James Franco winning a Golden Globe when his reputation is sketchy at best.

In fact, his win on that night of all nights was enough for one actress to hint at sexual misconduct. Others have chimed in, alleging things like an interest in underage teens.

So yes, Hollywood — like the rest of the world — has a long way to go before everything’s as it should be.

But progress can only be made when people speak out. Thank you, Debra Messing.

Oprah Winfrey Delivers the Speech Everyone is Talking About

Oprah Winfrey inspired two things at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night:

  1. An entire nation.
  2. Talk that she will run for President in 2020.

The latter point may be mere conjecture and a complete fantasy.

But the former is simply a fact.

The 63-year-old icon and received the Cecil B. DeMille Award at last night’s ceremony, an honorary award bestowed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.

It’s safe to say Oprah has made a lot of those, isn’t it?

She accepted the trophy on a night whose major focus was on the #MeToo Movement and the topic of sexual misconduct in Hollywood.

“It is not lost on me that, at this moment, there is some little girl watching as I become the first Black woman to be given [this] award,” Winfrey said early on, adding:

“It is an honor and it is a privilege to share the evening with all of them.”

The crowd gave her the first of many rousing ovations after these words.

At one point, Oprah referenced Recy Taylor, an African-American woman who never received justice after being abducted and gang-raped by six white men in Alabama.

She died 10 days ago.

“I want all the girls watching to know a new day is on the horizon,” she continued.

“And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure they are the leaders to take us to the time where nobody has to say ‘me too’ again.”

Emphasizing the theme of female empowerment, Winfrey also said:

“This year, we became the story. But it’s not just a story affecting the entertainment industry, it’s one that transcends any culture, or workplace…

“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men — but their time is up. Their time is up!”

Cue the standing ovation after this line.

And then cue chatter over Oprah running for President in two years.

We aren’t about to speculate on that.

But we will encourage you to watch her speech below. It’s incredible…
