What is an inclusion rider?

Onlookers were quick to point out the tender embrace on Twitter, praising the powerful moment. McDormand earned her second Oscar Sunday for her work in the drama "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". Not surprisingly, the topic came up.

Here's everything you need to know about what an inclusion rider is as well as the Oscars results, Oscar dresses and what happened on the Oscar red carpet.

An inclusion rider, at its most simple, is a stipulation actors and actresses can put into their contract that states at least 50 per cent of the cast and crew are women or people of colour. The actress, who has been a working actress for 35 years, since her debut in the Coen Brothers' film debut, 1984's Blood Simple, revealed that she had only first heard about an "inclusion rider" last week. "The whole idea of women trending - no". No. African-Americans "trending"? No. "I think this is what Chloe Kim must've felt like after doing back-to-back 1080s in the Olympic half-pipe. Right? Power in rules".

Smith has pushed for years for more diverse representation in film - delivering a TED Talk on the topic while she was at it - and the inclusion rider has been a crucial arrow in her quiver.

"What if A-list actors amended every contract with an equity rider?". It is time for Hollywood to wake up and make sure that art is depicting the world around us and who actually lives in it.

The 91st Annual Academy Awards could look a lot different, and that's a very good thing. "It doesn't call on those who have struggled to find a place in the industry to also be the source of the solution", she said.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing Frances McDormand's Oscar after the awards ceremony on Sunday. "I only show up when I can and when I want to". I only show up when I can and when I want to, but I was there at the Golden Globes and it's nearly like there was an arc that started there. Below we have both Frances McDormand's acceptance speech from ABC YouTube, and another video from Variety YouTube featuring Frances McDormand's interview in the Oscar's press room, shortly after her big win.

Before gathering in each other's arms, Frances paid tributes to her fellow actresses in the middle of her acceptance speech by asking them to stand up for a round of applause. "C'mon!" she said.
