“We are honored to be a part of this supportive and artistic group and we’re impressed that so many highly effective voices are now not silenced by the concern of retaliation,” she mentioned Sunday night time earlier than introducing the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries.
Arquette is one in all many ladies who came forward last fall with a story of Harvey Weinstein’s predatory behavior. The actress advised The New Yorker she met the movie producer within the early ’90s on the Beverly Hills Hotel, the place he allegedly grabbed her hand and put it on his penis.
Arquette claims Weinstein later retaliated by by no means placing her in one in all his movies once more ― she solely starred in “Pulp Fiction” ― and by no means publicly accused him for the sake of her profession.
“Rosanna, you might be one of many voices,” Tomei mentioned Sunday night time. “You are one of many silence breakers and all of us owe you a debt of gratitude.”
Arquette was named as Time Magazine’s Person of the Year as a part of group of “silence breakers” who sparked a nationwide dialog about sexual harassment and assault.
The actress went on to share that she was on the ceremony supporting the women and men who’ve spoken out about their abusers, together with Asia Argento, Annabella Sciorra, Ashley Judd, Daryl Hannah, Mira Sorvino and Anthony Rapp.
Many of Weinstein’s accusers, together with Arquette, claimed they were not invited to the Golden Globes earlier this month, the place actors and actresses blacked out the red carpet in solidarity with the Time’s Up motion.
