Following in the footsteps of award ceremonies of the past few months, including the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards, stars wore black in honor of Time’s Up to the 2018 BAFTA Awards. Prior to the ceremony, held at the Royal Albert Hall in London, several activists from the group Sisters Uncut crashed the red carpet wearing t-shirts that read “Time’s Up Theresa,” a reference to Theresa May’s upcoming Domestic Violence and Abuse Bill, which critics have argued will criminalize survivors and cut funding to domestic violence services.

Though police removed the protestors, pointed statements regarding sexual misconduct and gender equality were made on stage throughout the night. Martin McDonagh, writer and director of “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” (which swept up five awards) stated, “our film is a hopeful one in lots of ways but it’s also an angry one, and as we’ve seen this year, sometimes anger is the only way to get people to listen and to change, so we’re thrilled that BAFTA has recognised this.”

Frances McDormand, accepting her award for best actress in “Three Billboards,” built on McDonagh’s statement and addressed the fact that she did not wear black: “I want you to know I stand in full solidarity with my sisters tonight in black. I also want to say that I appreciate a well-organised act of civil disobedience.”
