Frances McDormand, March 4, 2018:

“OK, look around, everybody. Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed. Don’t talk to us about it at the parties. Don’t. Invite us into your office in a couple days, or you can come to ours, whichever suits you best, and we’ll tell you all about them. I have two words to leave with you tonight. Ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider.”  –

After her riveting acceptance speech at the Academy Awards, in the press area backstage, McDormand clarified the term: “inclusion rider.” She told reporters:

” …it’s something you put into your contract when negotiating for your film that says that you can ask for and/or demand at least 50% diversity in not only the casting, but also the crew.”

McDormand added that she had just heard about it last week:

“And so, the fact that we, that I, just learned that after 35 years of being in the film business, it’s not… We’re not going back. So, 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. Right? Power in rules.”

In her speech from the podium after receiving her golden statute, McDormand offered this:

“If I may be so honored to have all the female nominees in every category stand with me in this room tonight. The actors — Meryl, if you do it, everybody else will, come on — the filmmakers, the producers, the directors, the writers, the cinematographers, the composers, the songwriters, the designers.”
