At the recent 96th Academy Awards, several A-listers, including Billie Eilish, Finneas O’Connell, Mark Ruffalo, and Ramy Youssef, were seen wearing red pins with a hand symbol. These pins were worn in support of a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, as part of a campaign launched by Artists4Ceasefire.


Artists4Ceasefire is a group within the entertainment industry that signed an open letter to Joe Biden, urging the US to call for a ceasefire in the Gaza conflict. Notable personalities like Joaquin Phoenix, Cate Blanchett, Jon Stewart, Kristen Stewart, Jenna Ortega, and Andrew Garfield also endorsed the letter.

Speeches for Palestine:

Only two speeches explicitly called for a ceasefire. British director Jonathan Glazer condemned the Israeli occupation of Gaza during his acceptance speech for Best International Feature Film. Ramy Youssef, on the red carpet, emphasized the need for an immediate ceasefire, peace, and lasting justice for Palestine.

Protests near Dolby Theatre: 

Pro-Palestinian protesters gathered outside the Dolby Theatre, where the Oscars were held, expressing anger over Israeli aggression in Gaza. Signs with messages like "While you’re watching, bombs are dropping" were seen. Actor Mark Ruffalo showed support for the protesters, emphasizing the need for peace.

Pro-Palestine organization Jewish Voice for Peace highlighted the presence of hundreds of Jews, allies, and members from the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists at the protest. They stood in solidarity with Palestine, calling attention to the ongoing crisis amid the Oscars' celebrations.
