Read Jane Fonda’s full Golden Globes 2021 speech for Cecil B. DeMille Award

In accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award on at the 2021 Golden Globes Sunday evening, Jane Fonda called for more inclusion in Hollywood’s storytelling ranks. In her video conferenced acceptance speech, she spoke of the importance of storytelling, citing specific examples from major releases on film and TV last year. “But,” she added, “there’s a story we’ve been afraid to see and hear about ourselves in this industry. The story about which voices we respect and elevate and which we tune out. It’s about who’s offered a seat at the table and who was kept out of the rooms where decisions are made. So that’s all of us, including all the groups who decide who gets hired and what gets made and who wins awards.
