A cheat sheet on the top Tinseltown ladies to follow to the Oscars (on social media) this awards season.
Written By Jess Basser Sanders
With awards season upon us, The Violet Files is rolling a set of credits of our own: the Oscar-bound female Hollywood power players to follow on social media across the red carpets, ceremonies, and after-parties. Whether behind-the-scenes producers and influencers that helped the year’s most memorable pictures and programs come to life (like Room’s screenwriter Emma Donoghue), nominees’ über-agents, or first-time Academy Award hopefuls like Best Actress nominee Brie Larson and the stylish five wives of Best Picture contender Mad Max: Fury Road, these are the women you will want to watch (on Instagram, Twitter, or both) as we make the rounds on the road to the Oscars.
