Jane Fonda asked Hollywood to increase the variety of storytelling

While receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes, she celebrated the power of storytelling and how the industry “gives certain people a seat” and how others are “kept away.”

“You know, I’ve seen a lot of variety in my long life, and at times I’ve been challenged to understand some of the people I’ve met, but when my heart is open and I look below the surface, I inevitably feel kinship “She said, talking about the power of films to increase empathy

She shared how the nominations improved her understanding of experiences that were alien to the seasoned actor. Nomadland, Judas and the Black Messiah, “Small Acts”, “US vs. Billie Holiday”, “Ma Rainey”, “One Night in Miami” and most clearly “I May Destroy You” have taught me to think about sexual violence completely new way. “

Michaela Coel’s I May Destroy You was seen as a critical success, and his Golden Globe nudge caused some controversy.

Helen Hoehne, vice president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hosts the awards, said in a speech: “Thank you for joining us tonight to celebrate the work of artists from around the world. We realize that we have our own work to do. “

Fonda has had a long career, spanning nearly six decades, having been involved in a number of classic hits from sci-fi Barberella, revenge comedy 9-5, and even a break on television with Grace and Frankie.

Previous winners of this award are Sidney Poiter, Oprah Winfrey and Tom Hanks.
