Times Up Returns to The Golden Globes... and the Stars Get Tricked!

One Year On - and on the Golden Globes Red Carpet the times up movement continues.

Debra Messing's Instagram shows the wristbands some stars will be wearing.

"A year ago, we embarked on a campaign to create safer work places," she wrote. "We won’t stop fighting until there is gender balance in leadership and all women have opportunity to reach their full potential at work. It’s been a record year for women, with a landmark number elected to Congress and a slew of diverse firsts, but we still have so far to go."

A year ago, we embarked on a campaign to create safer work places. Since then, thousands of survivors have been provided resources through the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund. We created the Fund because all people deserve to be safe at work, but safety alone is far from our end goal. It’s the bare minimum. Sexual harassment stems from an in balance of power. Issues of workplace safety for women, and especially for women of color, are but a symptom of the power inbalance that plagues nearly every sector. We won’t stop fighting until there is gender balance in leadership and all women have opportunity to reach their full potential at work. It’s been a record year for women, with a landmark number elected to Congress and a slew of diverse firsts, but we still have so far to go. And it’s not because women aren’t working hard enough or aren’t capable enough. The system is fundamentally broken. Women are over represented in many low paying jobs but under represented in leadership positions across nearly every industry. We shoulder greater caregiving responsibilities for children and elderly parents and are more likely to live in poverty. This picture is not acceptable. That’s why, at the beginning of our second year, we are launching #TIMESUPX2, to double the number of women in leadership and across other spaces where women are under represented. Please join us on this journey. 👊🏼TIMESUPnow.com/TIMESUPX2 #TIMESUPX2

Meanwhile the stars have been duped by a party crasher ahead of the awards - when a man tricked celebrities into handing over their tickets to a fancy pre-Golden Globes party in LA.

As the nominees arrived at Chateau Marmont Hotel and waited for the lift to the penthouse where the party was on, Variety has reported that a tall white man in a black suit and white shirt was seen asking guests to hand over their tickets before ascending.

Among the stars tricked were comedian Keegan-Michael Key and Modern Family's Sarah Hyland.

The stars were confused when they got up the party and were once again asked to hand over their tickets - by this time the man had already vanished... probably to sell the tickets!
