Frances McDormand Explains What an 'Inclusion Rider' is Backstage at Oscars 2018 (Video)

Frances McDormand ended her speech at the 2018 Academy Awards by saying, “Two words: inclusion rider.” Now, she’s explaining what she meant.

The two-time Oscar-winner opened up in the press room backstage after the show on Sunday night (March 4) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

“To everyone that does a negotiation on a film, an inclusion rider means that you can ask for and/or demand at least 50% diversity in not only in casting but also the crew,” Frances said. “The fact that I’ve just learned that after 35 years of being in the film business, we’re not going back.”

“The whole idea of women ‘trending?’ No. No trending. African-Americans ‘trending?’ No. No trending, it changes now. And I think the inclusion rider will have something to do with that. Power in rules,” she added.
