Brie Larson Advocates for Diverse Critics at Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards 2018!

Ellen Pompeo, Brie Larson and Alison Brie hit the carpet while attending the Women In Film 2018 Crystal + Lucy Awards presented by Max Mara, Lancôme and Lexus at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Wednesday (June 13) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The three ladies were joined at the event by Katherine Langford, Alice Eve, Regina Hall, Lake Bell, Michaela Watkins, Kate Flannery, Jane Lynch, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Rosanna Arquette, Diane Warren, Alexandra Shipp, Katherine McNamara, Chloe x Halle, Julissa Bermudez and Francia Raisa.

Brie was honored with The Crystal Award for Excellence in Film and took the opportunity to demand more diversity in film reviews.

“I don’t need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work about A Wrinkle in Time,” Brie said. “It wasn’t made for him! I want to know what it meant to women of color, biracial women, to teen women of color.”

“Am I saying I hate white dudes? No, I am not,” Brie continued. “What I am saying is if you make a movie that is a love letter to women of color, there is an insanely low chance a woman of color will have a chance to see your movie, and review your movie.”

FYI: Brie is wearing a Carolina Herrera dress. Alison is wearing Max Mara with Pierre Hardy shoes. Alexandra and Katherine Langford are wearing Max Mara. Katherine McNamara is wearing HUGO. Chloe and Halle are wearing Maria Lucia Hohan dresses and Pedro García shoes.
