      Oscars 2017: Celebs Wear Blue Ribbon To Protest Against Trump At The Red Carpet

      By Monojit

      Renowned Hollywood celebrities like Barry Jenkins and Ruth Negga marked their protest against the US President's recent travel ban issue at the 89th Annual Oscar Awards Ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, by sporting a blue ribbon.

      The Blue Ribbon actually signifies the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). And it has been the organisation that has been fighting against the recent travel ban issue initiated by Donald Trump.

      Many of the Hollywood celebrities have shown their frustration over the travel ban issue by Donald Trump and thus they found the Oscars stage apt to show their resentment towards the US President.

      Irish-Ethiopian Hollywood star actress Ruth Negga, who will be looking forward to grab the Best Actress Award for her role in Loving, has been the first to appear at the Red Carpet wearing the blue ribbon on her dazzling red Valentino dress.

      Negga then soon followed by another celebrity Lin-Manuel Miranda along with his mother, both of them spotted with the political accessory. Miranda has been nominated Best Music and Lyrics for the "How far I'll go" song from the animated film Moana.

      Later on, Moonlight director Barry Jenkins was seen wearing a blue ribbon pinned to his suit. Other major celebrities to wear the blue ribbon this award night were Casey Affleck, Karlie Kloss and Benj Pasek.
