The evening, hosted by Oscar-winning actress Emma Stone and Oscar-winning producer and WIF President Cathy Schulman, honored all the women, in front of and behind the camera, who have been nominated for an Academy Award this year. Nearly thirty 90th Academy Award female nominees were in attendance. During the program remarks, Oscar-winning producer and WIF President Cathy Schulman brought up Viola Davis who gave an impromptu speech to attendees and encouraged the audience to “own who you are!” Davis concluded by saying, “The privilege of a lifetime is being exactly who we are.” Co-host of the evening, Emma Stone, also took to the stage during the event’s program remarks where she quipped, “No one should have to follow Viola Davis, like ever.” On a more serious note, she thanked the nominees for inspiring her with their work. She brought up a surprise guest, legendary tennis player, Billie Jean King, whom Emma portrayed in Battle of the Sexes. Attendees included nominees Margot Robbie, Greta Gerwig, Mary J. Blige, Rachel Morrison, Emily V. Gordon, and more.
