Watch Frances McDormand's Powerful Best Actress Oscars Acceptance Speech

Ashley Judd Annabella Sciorra and Salma Hayek

"The goal is that talent can take the inclusion rider and adopt it in ways that make sense for their values and their beliefs".

You'd see more movies like Black Panther, the current box-office champ that was often mentioned Sunday night, and which right now looks like a cinch for a Best Picture nomination and more for the 2019 Oscars show.

- Whitney Cummings (@WhitneyCummings) March 5, 2018For the non-film contract fluent folks, Frances McDormand closed with "inclusion rider", likely meaning put diversity requirements in your contract about the other crew/artist positions throughout a film you attach yourself to.

Three Billboards From Ebbing, Missouri won two Oscars last night in total, with Frances McDormand's co-star Sam Rockwell winning Best Supporting actor for his portrayal of Dixon.

"OK everybody, look around because we all have stories to tell and projects to finance". "I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen- Inclusion Rider".

Frances McDormand's Oscar night took a dark turn after someone stole her golden statue. She delivered a powerful speech asking all female nominees to stand with her in solidarity. "This is mine. We got it tonight, baby!" The fact that I just learned that after 35 years of being in the business. we are not going back.

Backstage, McDormand said she just learned about inclusion riders last week, even though such provisions have always been available.

An "inclusion rider" is a legal terminology that Hollywood stars can have written into their contracts, to request "more diverse representation in background actors and extras", according to Fast Company.

"For those of you asking about the #InclusionRider, it's created to ensure equitable hiring in supportive roles for women, POC, the LGBT community, & people w/disabilities", the tweet said. So, the whole idea of women trending? No.

Inclusion riders just might be the answer. I would argue that only 8 to 10 of those characters are actually relevant to the story. Smith's main suggestions include adding five female speaking roles, adopting the NFL's Rooney Rule (which is used in considering people of color for National Football League head-coaching positions), and making it a contractual obligation for movies to diversify their casts to match their settings' demographics.

What if A-list actors amended every contract with an equity rider?
