BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. | Brie Larson advocates for diverse critics at film event
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Frances McDormand never uttered the words “inclusion rider” at the Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards Wednesday night in Beverly Hills, but she did cheekily place a red bumper sticker with the phrase written clearly in black capital letters on her backside. It got the point across.
Not that she needed to do a repeat performance. The concept was made instantly famous through her Oscar speech earlier this year and it proved to be a recurring theme of the evening, which saw Brie Larson making a plea for more diversity in film criticism and ABC president Channing Dungey advocating for diverse voices not just on screen but behind it too.
