Illness Didn't Stop These Powerful Women From Showing Their Support At The Golden Globes

While many famous faces walked the red carpet on Sunday wearing gorgeous gowns and suits, there were a few celebrities that were missing in the crowd.

Many members of the Hollywood elite were wearing all black at the awards show on Sunday night in a statement about sexual harassment in the industry.

Actresses including Eva Longoria, Tracee Ellis Ross, Emma Stone, Meryl Streep and Kerry Washington showed up in a coordinated wardrobe to support the Time's Up movement during the banquet.

The Time's Up movement was started by Meryl Streep, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Shonda Rhimes who each donated $500,000, while Taylor Swift and Oprah Winfrey added $100,000 to the pot each. Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain and Cate Blanchett each contributed $50,000 to the money raised to help lower-income women and men pursue their cases to help fight sexual harassment.

"Time's Up Legal Defense Fund will provide subsidized legal support to women and men who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace and while in pursuit of their careers," reads a statement on the donation's page.

These prominent actresses took their message to the red carpet where they all dressed in the same color, black.

And they were all smiles while they did it.

And it wasn't just women that were supporting the cause.

But a few famous faces were forced to stay home on the big night.

The movement was just too important for some celebrities to miss out on, even though they had to miss the event.

"In Solidarity from my sick bed #TIMESUP #WHYWEWEARBLACK #GoldenGlobes," Anne Hathaway wrote with an Instagram photo of herself wearing a black dress.

Olivia Munn was also missing from the crowd, like Hathaway she also shared her voice in support of the Time's Up campaign.

"I'm staying home today sick with the flu," Munn tweeted. "But so appreciative of everyone who has rallied around to support. I'll be watching from home❤️"

Congratulations to everyone who supported the movement, whether it was at the show or from home.
