High-profile British performers are planning to wear black to this month’s British Academy Film Awards – to support the Time’s Up campaign against sexual harassment.
Emma Watson, Keira Knightley and Emma Thompson are among those backing the move – which follows a similar campaign at the Golden Globes in Hollywood last month.
When the nominees for the awards were announced last month, organizers said the disturbing revelations about a host of powerful men in the entertainment business – should become “a catalyst for real, lasting change.”
Joanna Lumley is set to host the ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
