Stars champion #JeSuisCharlie at Golden Globes
George and Amal Clooney were photographed on the red carpet wearing pins that read ‘Je Suis Charlie’
Last week’s Paris attacks had a heavy presence in this year’s Golden Globes awards ceremony in Los Angeles where Hollywood’s stars carried signs reading “Je Suis Charlie,” in solidarity with those killed in an attack on a French satirical magazine.
George and Amal Clooney were photographed on the red carpet wearing pins that read “Je Suis Charlie,” a slogan, created out of solidarity with the 12 people killed in an Islamist gunman attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, the Associated Press reported.
During his acceptance speech for a lifetime achievement award George Clooney paid homage to the Paris rally held in honor of the Chalie Hebdo victims, Reuters news agency reported.
“Today is an extraordinary day,” Clooney said as he accepted his Cecil B. DeMille award recognizing his work as actor, filmmaker and activist.
“Millions marched not only in Paris but all around the world, and there were Christians and Jews and Muslims, leaders of countries all over the world, they didn't march in protest, they marched in support of the idea that we will not walk in fear. Je suis Charlie.”
The Clooneys were joined by Kathy Bates, Joshua Jackson, Diane Kruger and Helen Mirren, who all carried signs in support of those killed.
The Golden Globes mark the beginning of the award season as it recognizes the best work in television and cinema.
