During the red carpet interviews ahead of the Golden Globes Sunday night, E! News' Ryan Secrest and NBC's Carson Daly asked actresses about the "Time's Up" initiative, but were criticized on Twitter for interrupting them.
Most actresses wore black or the "Time's Up" pin to show support for the initiative. It was launched on Jan. 1, following months of upheaval in Hollywood as more men were brought down by sexual harassment allegations.
The initiative aims to stop sexual harassment in the workplace, and also launched a legal fund to help women fight sexism in legal cases. Acceptance speeches were filled with references to the movement, and calling for gender equality in Hollywood.
Daly was criticized for his interviews during NBC's pre-show, as viewers noticed he seemed to be cutting actresses off when they began speaking.
On the NBC preshow Carson Daly seemed off kilter as well and would interrupt an answer prematurely.— Metal Dave (@Metaldave85) January 8, 2018
Carson Daly would interrupt his own murder to get his bullshit lines out of his mouth #GoldenGlobes— Hollie Daudelin (@hgolightly92) January 8, 2018
Over on E! Network, Sacrest didn't have an easy time, either. Eva Longoria confronted him about the wage gap among E! Network anchors, while Debra Messing did the same in an interview with Giuliana Rancic. Both E! hosts were criticized by viewers at home.
Ryan Seacrest loves to interrupt women— Casey Murray (@cmrry) January 8, 2018
@RyanSeacrest why you interrupt Michelle Williams and talk over her to ramble on that you had the same thought? She never got to finish what she was saying 👿— Not yo mamas dodger fan (@dodgerkellie) January 7, 2018
