The 75th Annual Golden Globes launched the 2018 Awards Season with a bang with powerful statements for social change and a whole lot of girl power.
On the red carpet, the question shifted from “Who are you wearing?” to “Why are you wearing black?” as celebrities and activists arrived in black dresses and black suits in a fashion statement of solidarity for #TimesUp. The movement is intended to show support for those who have experienced sexual harassment, abuse, and discrimination in all industries and to demand safety and equality in all workplaces. By turning the color of mourning into a color of awakening, the #WhyIWearBlack conversation is a step forward in ensuring that the time is now for social change.
Here’s a recap of some more of the most memorable Golden Globe moments that honored the best in film and television in 2017.
Happy New Year! May good times, good vibes, and good people reign free in your 2018!
As you may know by now, I like to look towards the stars and the colours to see what the upcoming year will behold in terms of overarching themes and important changes to look out for as I live out the next 365 days. Here’s what the astrologists and colour psychologists predict for 2018…
I remember feeling so tired and jaded by the end of 2016. I even declared that year as “the dawn of the apocalypse”. And yet, I was still hopeful that 2017 would be an upswing in the right direction.
As I had anticipated, 2017 was a true test of our collective strength and our personal resilience. These past 365 days were flooded with major shifts, disappointments, frustrations, heartaches, and negativity on a scale I had never witnessed before. Without rehashing all of the awful things that happened this year (because why would we want to relive all of that again?), I am choosing to focus on celebrating the milestones (traveling to Italy, having amazing concert experiences, building unforgettable friendships, accomplishing career goals, and becoming more self-assured) and reflecting on how the good and the bad experiences will inform how I approach the present and the future. Nevertheless, I will persist, and you shall too.
As we gear up to say GTFO to 2017, I’d like to share the moments that made this year an unforgettable one…
Throughout the year, I’ve been compiling a page of memories from 2017 — including notable experiences I had, concerts I attended, music I listened to, movies I watched, television shows I followed, and books I read — and now the time capsule is complete! Check it out here at Scrapbook 2017.
After the topsy-turvy year the world has experienced in 2017, we all deserve a few moments to unwind — preferably for two hours with a great film (and a bag of popcorn) to digest. From musical affairs to socially-relevant dramas, this holiday season’s motion picture releases offer a variety of options for movie-goers to suit whatever viewing mood they may be in, be it fun escapism or thought-provoking fare.
