This year’s Oscar Gala offered a small fashion eye-catcher: Among other things, Cate Blanchett had a blue bow on her blue dress, and Daniel Brühl wore one on his white jacket. Volker Bertelmann, who was awarded for his film music in “Nothing New in the West”, and Guillermo Del Toro, who received a golden boy for his “Pinocchio” version in the category “Best Animated Feature Film”, also opted for the blue ribbon. Jamie Lee Curtis even put it on her wedding ring. What is the meaning of these accessories?
With these small loops, the stars want to make a political statement and draw attention to the #WithRefugees campaign of the UN refugee agency UNHCR. The blue ribbons had already dominated the picture at the BAFTA Awards in February.
