Elisabeth Moss' special Golden Globe win

Many, many women watch television and go to the movies.

People are calling out Elisabeth Moss, who won Best Actress in a Drama TV Series, for being a hypocrite.

Ms. Moss, who accepted a best actress award for her starring role in Hulu's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel "The Handmaid's Tale", quoted Ms. Atwood in her speech and thanked "all of the women who came before you and after you who were fearless enough to speak out against intolerance and injustice and to fight for equality and freedom in this world". In case you're not familiar with the show, it's a feminist story by Margaret Atwood about a dystopian future where a woman's only role is to have children, and they are repeatedly raped in order for that to happen.

"This character that I play represents something that is the centre of our conversation right now, abuse".

So what's the issue?

Remini claims that she and Moss were childhood friends but because of the Church's policy that forces members to cut off all contact with those who leave, they no longer speak.


Asked if Time's Up had made her win more special, she told "Entertainment Tonight": "It does [make it more special]".

This certainly isn't the first time Elisabeth has been called a hypocrite for playing Offred. "We have an opportunity to bring visibility to things that are important to us", Moss reflected.

Meanwhile, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon Prime Video), best comedy for Golden Globes, is story of a NY housewife of Fifties who, after her husband abandoned by her secretary, is on a stage, take a microphone and discover his talent for monologues. In accepting her acting trophy for "Big Little Lies", Nicole Kidman said the show would not have been what it is "without the mastery of Jean-Marc Vallee and (creator) David E. Kelley".

Scientology has become one of the most controversial religions in the world because of its alleged culture of abuse and fear that seems to allow the rich and famous to flourish and the poor and unknown to suffer.

After thanking her cast, her team, and her family, Moss went on to quote Margret Atwood in an acceptance speech that commended the women who spoke out against "intolerance and injustice". But for some viewers, the issue of her words being in conflict with her religious practice remains.
