“I don’t show up all the time. Yet she collected all the biggest trophies. Her first came in 1996 for Fargo, directed by her husband Joel Coen and his brother Ethan. Her first came in 1996 for “Fargo,” directed by her husband Joel Coen and his brother Ethan. “Meryl, if you do it, everyone else will,” she said to best-actress nominee Meryl Streep, who sat in the front row of the Dolby Theatre. That’s really smart. “I think $21 million in the legal defense fund is a great way to start and the commission that’s being headed by Anita Hill. “We’re going to be one of the small industries that try to make a difference,” McDormand said. She beat out Sally Hawkins of “The Shape of Water,” Margot Robbie of “I, Tonya,” Saoirse Ronan of “Lady Bird,” and 21-time nominee Streep of “The Post.” It was the second Oscar win for McDormand.

It was the second Oscar win for McDormand. “I don’t do everything, as you know,” she said backstage. I only show up when I can and when I want to.” At the Spirit awards on Oscar eve, McDormand said it had been hard not to swear the last couple months because “this awards convention goes on (expletive) forever.”
After offering thanks on Sunday night, McDormand turned serious and said, “Now I want to get some perspective.” She asked all the other female nominees in every category to stand up in the audience. Backstage, she noted the Time’s Up movement that took hold at the Golden Globes in January. We actually started a conversation that will change something.”
McDormand picked up her trophy that she had set down backstage, thrust it upside down in the air and marched out of the room. After sweeping trophies at the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, Independent Spirit and BAFTA ceremonies, McDormand won for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
She played Mildred Hayes, a hardened woman seeking justice for her daughter’s murder in the crime drama. Related News
