"So all of the female actresses and attendees, or most of them at least, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest. There all going to be wearing black, obviously to protest the injustices that have been taking place in Hollywood since forever," the hosts shared.

People magazine also cited multiple sources in reporting that major stars were set to participate in the protest. 

Nominations for the 2018 Golden Globes were announced on Dec. 11. Jessica Chastain, Sally Hawkins, Frances McDormand, Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams, Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan and Emma Stone are just some of the actresses nominated for their work this year.

This follows the statement that stars at the 2017 Emmys made this past September. Many of the award show attendees wore a blue ribbon to show their support for the American Civil Liberties Union and their "Stand With the ACLU" initiative.

The 2018 Golden Globes will take place Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018, at 8 p.m. ET. The show airs on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
