#MeToo is had its own moment at the 90th annual Academy Awards. Actress Frances McDormand earned an Oscar for Best Actress in a leading role, and during her speech she emphasized the importance of diversity and inclusion. She also asked other female nominees in the room to stand up in solidarity. Entertainment Weekly's Senior Editor Katie Hasty explains the significance of this moment.

"At this point I think this was a good show to look forward," says Hasty. "It creates a new energy."

McDormand specifically called for more people in entertainment to push for an "inclusion rider" which would lead to people including diversity requirements in contracts.
