This year's awards show is rocking so far!

As The Blast reported, some of Hollywood's biggest female stars will walk the red carpet with women by their sides. "The Post" star said, "People are aware now of a power imbalance". "It's about solidarity, and what can be born of women speaking to each other, empowering ourselves", said Emma Watson, who attended with friend Marai Larasi, executive director of Imkaan, which the actress described as "an fantastic black feminist organization that fights violence against women and girls".

Meryl Streep will bring Ai-jen Poo, the director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and co-director of the Caring Across Generations Campaign.

Meanwhile, singer Kelly Clarkson, who wore an off-the-shoulder black dress with golden sleeves, said Sunday night that she hopes this statement extends past the red carpet. "We're saying women in Hollywood have an opportunity to amplify the issue and shine a light on things". Poehler is with Sary Jayaraman, who advocates for restaurant workers; Dern is taking Mónica Ramírez, a Latina empowerment activism who focuses on sexual violence against farmworkers.

- Calina Lawrence, a Suquamish Tribe member, singer and activist for, among other causes, Native American treaty and water rights, will be going with Ms. Woodley. King is also the founder of the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative and has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Michelle Williams' plus-one is Tarana Burke, who founded the #MeToo movement back in 1997 - two decades before that anthem became a hashtag, popularized by Alyssa Milano, in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein investigation - and is senior director of the nonprofit Girls for Gender Equity.

Sarandon's guest was organizer Rosa Clemente, founder of PR (Puerto Rico) On The Map.
