This year’s award season has set a very political tone especially with the rise of President Trump to power. The most controversial thus far was Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech during the Golden Globe Award for her Lifetime Achievement Award. She delivered a very strong message resisting Trump’s agenda and policies. She was not the only actress to have given a political statement that night. In fact, Streep has set the tone for how speeches were carved in the succeeding awards nights.
The biggest night for musicians, the Grammys, also became a platform for anti-Trump sentiments. It has become almost entirely a show that called out Donald Trump for his policies and behavior. The collective voices of these huge stars had a strong impact that will most likely continue with more awards nights moving forward. Here are 8 of the strongest anti-Trump sentiments that were given by artists during the awards nights.
