Several stars, including Jamie Lee Curtis, have worn this symbol.

On the #Oscars red carpet, several stars, Jamie Lee Curtis, Paolo Sorrentino, Youn Yuh-jung (Oscar for Best Supporting Actress last year for minari), Diane Warren or Alberto Iglesias sported a blue ribbon, the color of the United Nations Refugee Agency, in solidarity with Ukrainians fleeing their country.

The ribbon refers to the refugee crisis“, has explained Jamie Lee Curtis, the first to perform in this way at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. “This is an incredibly important moment given what is happening in Ukraine. Population displacement, the exodus of people in the world is a crucial moment of our time.”

For me it is obvious, it is important to repeat, even in this joyful moment, that what is happening is outside history and unacceptable.“, commented on his side Paolo Sorrentinothe director of God’s hand (nominated for the Oscar for best foreign film).
