This award was launched in 2016, and it will continue till 2020. #SeeHer is basically an award to appreciate a women who attempts to change stereotypes. Last year it was Viola Davis and this year Gal Gadot took the trophy and honor home.
The season of Award functions brings in a lot of excitement. Excitement for winners, for red carpet, for gossips and for acceptance speech.
In fact these acceptance speeches becomes inspiration not just for the year but for coming year as well. For example, Oprah’s speech at the Golden Globes 2018 is already converted into memes and inspiring everyone.
The Wonder Women’s speech can be counted in such category easily.
It was fitting that the #SeeHer award was presented to Gal Gadot by Patty Jenkins. Who happens to be one the reasons that Gal is receiving this award. As Patty is director of Wonder Women, the movie that also won Best Action Film award at the same ceremony.
Patty had the Perfect introduction for our award winner.
“She excelled at every aspect of the universal hero’s struggle in real life on and off the screen. But the really special thing is, she didn’t do it for the glory. She didn’t do it for the fame. She’s not here for the money. She did it for us,” Patty explained. “She knew the great importance of this character and what she could mean to the world if well done.”
First thing that Gal did after receiving the award was to thank Patty for this opportunity to become Wonder Women.
“The whole process of making this film inspired me and I hope it inspires others. When I started acting, there were very few female-led movies and even fewer female directors,” Gal explained. “This year, three of the top-grossing films were female led and one of them was directed by my wonderful Patty Jenkins.”
“There were eight other films in [the] top 100 which were directed by females. So although this is progress, there’s still a long way to go,” she continued. “It’s not only our job to entertain, but our duty to inspire and educate for love and respect.
Gal Gadot also wore black on the red carpet of Golden Globes 2018 as a part of Times up Movement to show solidarity.
