SAG Awards will feature only women presenters at 2018 ceremony

Article here. Excerpt:

'Talk about girl power.

In a year where women have fought to have their voices heard, the Screen Actors Guild announced that in January the annual award ceremony will feature only female presenters for the first time in history, Entertainment Weekly announced.

Executive producer of the SAG Awards Kathy Connell said the idea was to "salute our women" in a year where they have "very, very brave."
...
"We thought it was an opportunity to salute our women because it's not just about one issue," she said, referencing how so many women — famous and not — came forward with their stories of sexual harassment and assault.
...
Time Magazine named its "Person of the Year" as the whole "MeToo" movement — or the silence breakers — and Merriam Webster's dictionary named "feminism" as its word of the year.

So, it is only fitting that the guild, which so many silence-breaking women belong to, will be have its ceremony without a man as a co-presenter come 2018.
...
Men will still appear on stage as they introduce the clips for nominees in the film ensemble category and, of course, there are still male nominees.'

Watch the decline

All the more reason to reject Hollywood and public movie theaters. The rise of Chinese Studios and Netflix.

Stupid.

I guess they conveniently forgot that the #MeToo movement contains men as well. But, heaven forbid we ever acknowledge the male victims. #MeTooButNotMeToo
