Elisabeth won last night the Golden Globe or “Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama” for “The Handmaid’s Tale”
After thanking many people during her Golden Globes speech, Moss pulled out a slip of paper to quote Atwood herself. “This is from Margaret Atwood,” she said, before reading:
”We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edge of print. It gave us more freedom. We lived in the gaps between the stories.”
“Margaret Atwood, this is for you and all of the women who came before you and after you who were brave enough to speak out against intolerance and injustice and to fight for equality and freedom in this world,” she continued. “We no longer live in the blank white spaces at the edge of print, we no longer live in the gaps between the stories, we are the story in print and we are writing the story ourselves.”
In solidarity with the victims of sexual harassment and assault, most women and many men dressed in all black. Elisabeth was wearing custom Christian Dior Haute Couture black dress.
Moss also talked about the importance of female-driven productions:

Elisabeth Moss appears on the list of the best performances of 2017 made by The Playlist. It’s a list that takes in both TV and film performances, ranging from blockbusters to indies and is is published annually on the website:
19. Elisabeth Moss as Offred in “The Handmaid’s Tale”
Though she’s often great on the big screen too (particularly her team-ups with Alex Ross Perry), Elisabeth Moss is at this point arguably the face most associated with the Peak TV era, after “The West Wing,” “Mad Men,” “Top Of The Lake” and now “The Handmaid’s Tale,” where her portrayal of lead Offred might mark a new peak. Even when the show misstepped, Moss was the anchor at its centre, making you feel every torture or indignity with burning anger, but also never letting us forget June Osborne, the vibrant, funny, fierce women underneath.
The Handmaid’s Tale also appears on the list of The Best TV Shows Of 2017:
3. “The Handmaid’s Tale”
In any year, this speculative Hulu drama would be on our list. Between Reed Morano’s tight, tone-setting direction on episodes 1-3, Elisabeth Moss’s breathtaking performance and a deft use of flashbacks, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is the best TV has to offer. Even in a void, it would be impossible to ignore the merits of this show. But this year – this fucking year – its themes take on real potency, in light of the Trump administration’s attacks on female bodily autonomy (see Jane Doe’s case, for a real-life experience that seems out of a dystopian universe). Showrunner Bruce Miller didn’t know that Trump would win the election, but Margaret Atwood’s novel and this adaptation have frightening new relevancy in its wake. Morano’s visual style also adds to the feeling of immediacy, placing us intimately within the world of Offred (Moss) as she attempts to navigate a near-future state mired in totalitarianism, misogyny and theocracy. Moss’ performance is nuanced, particularly in its silences, but credit is also due to the supporting cast. Samira Wiley and Ann Dowd have previously impressed in “Orange Is the New Black” and “The Leftovers,” respectively, but Yvonne Strahovski and Alexis Bledel are the revelations, with Bledel surprising even fans of her work on “Gilmore Girls.” “The Handmaid’s Tale” challenges binge-watching trends (unless you’re a true masochist intent on suffocating under a blanket of depression), but season one ended with unexpected hope, and we can’t imagine we were the only ones fist-pumping during the compelling season 1 finale “Night.”

Look gorgeous while giving back? Yes, please! Elisabeth Moss rocked a killer red lip by The Lipstick Lobby for a great cause, which she showed off in an Instagram post on Wednesday, November 1.
“Resist. 💋💋💋 For each red ‘Outrage’ lipstick sold, $5 will be donated towards @aclu_nationwide with a minimum donation of $10,000,” The Handmaid’s Tale star explained. “If you prefer pink try ‘Kiss My Pink’, and a 100% of the proceeds go to @plannedparenthood details for buying @thelipsticklobby #outrage #kissmypink.”
The Lipstick Lobby is using makeup to make more than fashion statement — wearing their lip colors actually makes a difference! The social justice brand currently has two different lip colors, Outrage and Kiss My Pink, that benefit the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood, respectively. Both colors are vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free and provide a full-coverage finish.
Christie Brinkley’s daughter, Sailor, has also sported the Outrage hue. Since both beautiful shades are only $19 each, why not buy both? You can also share your best selfie with the hashtag #LipstickItToTheMan to spread awareness.
“Wearing this lipstick is a reminder that small actions can create big waves,” the brand says. We’ve certainly found that to be true in the beauty world. Whether it’s going for a makeup-free selfie to support economically disadvantaged communities or wearing lingerie for breast cancer awareness, there are many ways to show your support for causes through beauty and fashion.
If these are organizations you believe in, this is a great — and glam — way to get behind them!

After winning the Emmy’s 2017 for “The Handmaid’s Tale”, Elisabeth Moss will star in an abbortion film titled “Call Jane“.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elisabeth will play Jane, a married woman who is unexpectedly pregnant and discovers the underground group of women. Check out the full article:
On the heels of her groundbreaking best actress Emmy win for Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Elisabeth Moss has signed on to star in Call Jane, an abortion drama to be directed by My Week With Marilyn filmmaker Simon Curtis.
Robbie Brenner, one of the producers behind the Oscar-winning Matthew McConaughey AIDS drama Dallas Buyers Club, is producing the indie pic along with Jeff Kwatinetz and Kevin McKeon of The Firm.
Set in 1960s Chicago, Call Jane focuses on the true story of an underground network of suburban women who secretly provide safe abortions for women in need pre-Roe v. Wade.
Moss will play Jane, a married woman who is unexpectedly pregnant and discovers the underground group of women.
The screenplay, based on the true story of a 1960s movement called the Jane Collective, was written by Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi, co-creators of The Resident, the upcoming Fox drama set to premiere in January.
“This script [for Call Jane] is commercial and entertaining, but it’s also really relevant to what is going on with the world today,” Brenner told The Hollywood Reporter. “Women’s rights are important and no one should have the right to control a woman’s body. And that such an idea can be challenged today and that we can go back in time on these issues is scary.”
The project is out to financiers, and the goal is to start production in the first quarter of 2018.
The Firm recently sold domestic rights to Jennifer Garner-starrer The Tribes of Palos Verdes to IFC and is currently in postproduction on the race drama Burden, starring Garrett Hedlund and Forest Whitaker. The latter tells the true story of a man hunted by the Ku Klux Klan after leaving the group only to be taken in and protected by a black congregation in rural South Carolina.
Curtis’ My Week With Marilyn (2011) was nominated for two Academy Awards, while his more recent feature, The Woman in Gold, was the highest-grossing independent feature in 2015.
Moss won two Emmys on Sunday night for The Handmaid’s Tale, one for acting and the other for producing the series, which deals with totalitarianism and the subjugation of women’s rights. She next stars in the new season of the Jane Campion limited series Top of the Lake: China Girl, and will be seen this fall in Ruben Ostlund’s Palme d’Or-winning film The Square.
Moss is repped by WME, Ribisi Entertainment and Independent Talent Group in the U.K. Schore and Sethi are with ICM and Madhouse Entertainment. Curtis is repped by UTA, Anonymous Content and Independent Talent Group in the U.K.
