Frances McDormand won the 2018 Oscar for Best Actress for her leading role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. During her acceptance speech, she placed her statue on the floor next to her, and then ordered all the other candidates in the room to stand in the audience in solidarity.
"If I could get all the women to stand up with me right now," he said, motioning for them to stand up. "Look, everyone, look, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell, and we all have projects that we have to finance."
He encouraged people to seriously discuss future projects focused on women during meetings, rather than during tonight's drinks. "I have two words to go tonight: & # 39; inclusion cyclist & # 39;" he said. The words refer to the actors who put diversity requirements in their contracts on the other crew and the positions of the actors for a film in which they choose to act.

An "inclusion broker" is a clause in an actor's contract that requires the cast and crew to be diverse in order to retain the actor. It's something brave to say in such a big scenario. Phillip Atiba Goff (@DrPhilGoff) March 5, 2018

McDormand had previously won the award for best actress for her work in Fargo. This was his fifth nomination in the category. The other nominees in their category were Meryl Streep in The Post, Margot Robbie in I, Tonya, Sally Hawkins in The Shape of Water, and Saoirse Ronan in Lady Bird.
