But her words only magnify the problem that none of the women who made themselves heard were allowed to be seen or heard at the Golden Globes award ceremony. The weren’t invited.

Page Six reports, “Weinstein accusers claim they weren’t invited to Golden Globes.”

“I can only speak for myself but not only I wasn’t invited to the #GoldenGlobes: nobody asked my opinion about #TIMESUP or to sign the letter,” Argento, 42, tweeted Monday morning. “I support @TIMESUPNOW even though I was excluded from it. Guess I am not POWERFUL or HOLLYWOOD enough. Proud to work behind the scenes.”

She’s referring to Weinstein accusers, Annabella Sciorra, Daryl Hannah, and Mira Sorvino.
