Rose McGowan and Asia Argento accused Harvey Weinstein of rape, which acted as a catalyst for the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements — but they, like Marchesa gowns, were conspicuously absent from the 2018 Golden Globes.
The women, along with several of Weinstein’s other accusers, claim they weren’t invited to the event.
“I can only speak for myself but not only I wasn’t invited to the #GoldenGlobes: nobody asked my opinion about #TIMESUP or to sign the letter,” Argento, 42, tweeted Monday morning. “I support @TIMESUPNOW even though I was excluded from it. Guess I am not POWERFUL or HOLLYWOOD enough. Proud to work behind the scenes.”
On Sunday, Argento tweeted to McGowan, “No one should forget that you were the first one who broke the silence. Anyone who tries to diminish your work is a troll and an enemy of the movement. You gave me the courage to speak out. I am on your side until I die.”
McGowan, 44, replied, “And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. I have no time for Hollywood fakery, but you I love, @AsiaArgento.”
Rosanna Arquette, who accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, tweeted to a follower, “No we weren’t invited. Annabella [Sciorra], Daryl [Hannah], Mira [Sorvino] … none of us were.”
Arquette’s sister, Oscar winner Patricia Arquette, replied, “That’s not cool-All of you should have been included. I wasn’t asked either but who cares! It’s great they are doing it & we will too!”
Sorvino — who accused Weinstein of not only harassing her, but of blacklisting her from the industry for rejecting his advances — thanked Patricia and Sciorra for their activism, writing, “Love you dear heart @PattyArquette, and all my sisters in this fight! Special shout out to my shining friend @AnnabellSciorra whose continued bravery and honesty is contagious and inspiring.”
Argento had a bit more pessimistic opinion of the omission.Well, we couldn't have actual Weinstein victims detract attention from Oprah's campaign announcement, could we?
“It would have been too much of a downer… an embarrassment,” she wrote. “Victims aren’t glamorous enough.”
