Darren's Miscellaneous Projects and Events for 2018 - Mon Jan 08, 2018 1:05 pm
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). 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?

If you read the article, it identifies Mia as his wife. That is what Darren Criss Army is hinting at.

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. )

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.
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
jessicaradloff14: So many interviews at once, barely any time to post. But last night’s #GoldenGlobes were one of the most refreshing red carpets in years. Starting with @glownetflix’s kickass @alisonbrie . Head over to @glamourmag for all the coverage!
This is a really nice pic of Darren.
