Last night's protest supported victims, whistleblowers and legal solutions to sexual assault.

The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards were held last night (Jan. 7) and to protest harassment and mistreatment in the workplace, stars wore black in support of the newly formed #TimesUp legal defense fund. The ceremony was peppered with references to disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein, actor Kevin Spacey and other high-profile men who stand accused of illegal and offensive behavior.

On Twitter, artists who attended the event and those who weren’t part of this year’s ceremony shared their support for #TimesUp with blackout photos of their own. Madonna wore a mask reading “Time’s Up…B——” and wrote, “I’ve been saying this for years!!!! Finally some solidarity!”

Mariah Carey, who attended the Globes as a nominee for The Star, wrote that she’s “very proud” to support the movement. Actors, directors, composers and more made the Globes’ diamond-and-gold anniversary one to remember — culminating during Oprah Winfrey’s powerful Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech.
