The Time's Up movement wasn't widely represented at the Oscars as it was for the Golden Globes when Hollywood women wore black in solidarity with sexual misconduct victims, as leaders of the organization said they weren't an "awards show protest group," according to a report in the Los Angeles Times. 

Time's Up was officially unveiled in January when more than 300 women formed an initiative to fight systemic sexual harassment in Hollywood and blue-collar workplaces following a slew of sexual abuse and harrassment allegations against men in high-profile positions.  

"We are not an awards show protest group," said filmmaker Ava DuVernay. "So we stand down this time. It's really important that you know that Time's Up is not about the red carpet. And those women you saw on the red carpet representing Time's Up [at the Globes] are now off the red carpet working their butts off being activists."

"I think there's really something about the narrative of Time's Up that was really important that this not be just capturing the awards show spotlight," she added. "It'll happen again, but not this time."
