That sucks, but it's nice to see him take action right away to try and help her out. And yes, the way I understand it she was at the Golden Globes - "at the end of the carpet" as she mentions in another tweet - but was denied press credentials for the LA premiere of ACS today, and she's used to that in general but it was more upsetting in this case.

Here are some replies from her Twitter:

Yong Chavez‏ @yongchavezLA 13 hours ago
Replying to @takeyourlove @AsiansInHollywd @CAPEUSA
At this point I’m not expecting. They have limited space & mainstream has dibs on the slots. It’s just the way it is. It just hurt this time because of the Filipino aspect of the show but w/ Darren doing this, I’m more than OK now.

Yong Chavez‏ @yongchavezLA 16 hours ago
Replying to @StaceyHallman @AsiansInHollywd @CAPEUSA
No, I haven’t heard back so that’s not a sure thing - but work-wise, it’s okay now because Darren discussed the show during the interview

and from a few days ago after she originally tweeted about it:

Yong Chavez‏ @yongchavezLA Jan 6  
Replying to @bee_panelo @ACSFX
Such is life. Sigh. But it’s OK, Darren spoke at length about ACS in our last interview. He & his publicist are good people so I have nothing but love for him & will still support the show. The red carpet is handled by a PR agency so different situation.

Thanks Lin for clarifying that Yong was at the end of the Golden Globes red carpet.  Thanks also for posting those tweets.  It's nice to see Darren being supportive and doing what he can.  He's a good egg (a major reason why I'm a big fan).    heart I hope Darren's email works and she gets the needed credentials to cover the premiere tonight.  So Lin, do you know if the premiere tonight is just for invited guests, mostly important Hollywood folks and media and friends/family?

Both Darren and Edgar make wonderful points here.  Both so articulate.  I am hoping that Versace will open some doors for Darren.  He's been doing great since Glee ended, with all his music and acting projects, but I think there is a good possibility that his career will pick up speed because of Versace (and we will be so happy for him!).  So given that he will be doing (hopefully) more projects (some, I hope, will be projects with a good amount of buzz) and thus doing more marketing for those projects, one thing he can work on is avoiding interrupting another person.   He is an adorably talkative person, but it's something to keep in mind.  (Sorry--it's one of my pet peeves, especially when I see someone whose first language was not English, taking a little more time to find his words in English, being interrupted.  Ok, jumping off my soapbox now.  :talking   )

Darren Criss on 'Why black?'

January 7, 2017

I thought the night would have a somber overtone but it feels like a battle cry, it means something. When you are an industry at the forefront of consumption, it’s important to show we’re not going to stand for this.
Source:  http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-et-golden-globes-2018-live-updates-darren-criss-on-why-black-1515369641-htmlstory.html







teenvogue: As the #TimesUp movement takes the spotlight at tonight's #GoldenGlobes, urging people everywhere to take notice (and action!) when it comes to gender equality, it’s important to hold men accountable for their part in creating a more level playing field. Asking male celebrities to wear black may not seem like a lot — they already wear black tuxes to most events — but it’s crucial that they serve as allies and upstanders, and call out inequality when they see it. The fact that most men were not asked about #MeToo on the red carpet is disappointing, and we hope the men who showed up in all-black take ownership in driving the conversation forward, and do their part in checking the industry when it fails.






I'm very proud of Darren for being educated about the issue of the He For She solidarity campaign for the advancement of women, initiated by UN Women.  I didn't know about it until I saw his video.  Thank you, Darren!

What Pin Is Darren Criss Wearing At The 2018 Golden Globes? The HeForShe Pin Spotlights A Critical Issue



The 2018 Golden Globes kicked off Hollywood’s awards season in serious style, including actor Darren Criss, who made a statement with a unique lapel pin with an important message.

The biggest fashion and culture story of the evening was the fact that celebs wore black dresses and suits on the 2018 Golden Globes red carpet in a show of solidarity, unity, and support for survivors and accusers of sexual harassment, assault, and abuse. It was a moving display, and Criss took part in the action.

The Time’s Up pin was also a popular accessory of the night, as it called attention to the fact that as a society, we can no longer stay silent and allow this to happen across industries. But there was another fashion accessory which signaled change at the ceremony. Criss’ pink and black pinrepresents the HeForShe movement, which is a United Nations campaign for gender equality. The campaign also seeks to end sexual harassment and gendered violence.

The HeForShe campaign states on its website that gender equality is “not just a women’s issue, it’s a human rights issue. And when these powerful voices are heard, they will change the world.” It looks like Criss wants to show he’s part of that change.


There it is! Criss, who stars in the upcoming The Assassination of Gianni Versace, also posted a video on Twitter about why he was opting to rock this pin at the ceremony. He was invited to do so by his friend, singer Ricky Martin. He then passed invites along to his former Glee castmates. You can watch Criss’ video below.

“I am hoping to be a small part for a bigger change in whatever way I can,” said Criss in the video. It was a simple but powerful statement.

The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus slayed his black bowtie and a delightful disheveled bedhead. He also paired his Time’s Up pin with the HeForShe pin, showing three levels of support. It was a beautiful thing.

This is how fashion works on a critically important level. So many viewers undoubtedly tuned in to see the ensembles — and were ultimately further educated about important issues.

On its site, HeForShe also reaches out to those who want to donate to the cause, stating that it is working to build “a world where no one has to be afraid simply because of who they are.”

Currently, the HeForShe pin is not available for purchase in the merch section of the site. It was previously available via Amazon, but that is no longer the case. That could change, however, as the movement picks up steam and as more people inquire about it based on the fact that Criss and Reedus wore it to the awards show.

While wearing a black tux is pretty standard at awards shows, it’s nice to see actors like Criss take deliberate action to stand in solidarity with women and survivors. Now that’s allyship

Golden Globe Awards January 7, 2018


From Darren Criss Army:




Again, I found both Darren and Edgar to be extremely eloquent on the points they were making.   This Teen Vogue article also quotes Emma Watson (who was appointed UN Women Goodwill Ambassador), and I agree with all her points which line up with what Edgar was saying. 
Teen Vogue wrote:
Darren Criss Called on Men to Hold Each Other Accountable for How They Treat Women

The Golden Globes red carpet was a significant one this year, as attendees marched down the red carpet wearing black to show solidarity with the #TimesUp initiative. Women and men alike donned black outfits on the carpet, and wore pins signifying their support of the movement, but for some reason, women seemed to be the only ones asked questions about #TimesUp and gender equality in general — and people took notice. In an interview with E! News’s Giuliana Ransic, actors Darren Criss and Edgar Ramírez took it upon themselves to bring up why they wore black, and the work they’re doing to support gender equality.

After being asked what the evening means to them, Edgar brought up the #TimesUp initiative, saying he’s proud to be wearing black to support it. While Darren said the reason for wearing black on the red carpet was sort of an “ominous cloud” over the evening, he said the show of solidarity is ultimately one of resilience.

“It’s actually kind of a celebration of resilience. I think it’s a great representation of our solidarity and our community, that hopefully will reflect positively on the people tuning in.”

And because Edgar pointed out that sexual harassment, misconduct and gender inequality “is not a women’s issue,” but “an all genders issue,” Darren highlighted his support of the United Nations Women’s movement, HeForShe.

“This is a campaign from UN Women called HeForShe. It kind of calls out the boys,” Darren said. “There’s been a lot of strong, inspiring women who have led the way in voicing their outrage, but this is our way of calling out the lads to be held accountable and to voice their own solidarity and say this is something we don’t stand for either.”

This is so important. Women certainly don’t need men to speak on or lead movements on their behalf, but having men uphold, amplify and support the voices of women calling for change is essential. By holding each other accountable, men can make a difference in how women are treated across the country and the world. In a speech to the United Nations in 2014, Emma Watson said it’s not just women who need men to work toward gender equality, men need it too.

“Men, I would like to take this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue too. Because to date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society despite my needing his presence, as a child, as much as my mother’s. I’ve seen young men suffering from mental illness, unable to ask for help, for fear it would make them less of a men—or less of a man,” she said. “In fact, in the U.K., suicide is the biggest killer of men, between 20 to 49, eclipsing road accidents, cancer and coronary heart disease. I’ve seen men made fragile and insecure by a distorted sense of what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either.”

Ultimately, Edgar summed it all up. Anyone who has ever felt burdened by gender stereotypes needs to work toward shattering them, he said.

“It’s not only liberation movement for women, it’s a liberation movement for all genders,” Edgar said. “Everyone who has felt the burden of a gender stereotype or the pressure of fitting into an uncomfortable mold, or being intimidated against.”
