'Emma Watson' donated to a British fund

The announcement about Watsons donation, along with contributions from several other celebrities, to the UK Justice and Equality Fund followed the publication of a Dear Sisters open letter in The Guardian on Saturday. The letter was signed by some 200 women in the British entertainment industry and called on people everywhere to stand in solidarity with Hollywoods Times Up initiative to fight sexual harassment and inequality.

Its easy to dismiss harassment and abuse as being caused by one or two ... bad men, but the UK statistics point to a much bigger and more structural problem. The issue is systemic, Watson told The Guardian.

The letter and donations served as a curtain raiser for an activist night at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards on Sunday in London. Celebrities at the BAFTAs wore black to show their solidarity with the movement to eradicate sexual harassment. Virtually all of the stars turned out in black, and many also wore Times Up badges. One of the few attendees who opted out of the all-black clothing decision was the Duchess of Cambridge, who wore a dark green dress and a black ribbon belt. Members of royalty are not supposed to publicly take political positions.

Jennifer Lawrence at the BAFTA 2018 Awards

At the British American Film and Television Awards, Jennifer Lawrence was introduced by British actress and "Ab Fab" star, Joanna Lumley, who made her hosting debut at the BAFTAs. The 71-year-old introduced Lawrence before she presented the award for Outstanding British Film, telling the audience, "And we start with the award for Outstanding British Film and who better to kick the whole evening off than the hottest actress on the planet? Soon to be seen in 'Red Sparrow,' it's the ravishing Jennifer Lawrence." The 27-year-old Oscar winner walked on stage and said to Lumley, "Hi. That was a bit much, but thank you, Joanna."

"Everybody thought that I was being rude. But to be fair, I couldn't have just walked out after she was like, 'biggest movie star in the world!!" she explained, going on to make a reference to the movie "Mean Girls." "And I'd just walked out and gone 'thank you Joanna.' It would have been like, 'so you agree? You think you're really pretty?'" Lawrence also said that the moment between them was an inside joke.

Confirme today that Destiny 2

Developer Bungie recently outlined its plans for Destiny 2 through fall 2018 in response to player discontent. The developer later went into greater detail on what players can expect to see in Destiny 2 through May, when the games second expansion is scheduled to drop. But players hadnt gotten confirmation about a major expansion beyond Curse of Osiris and the second, unnamed expansion until now.

Presumably, by major expansion Activision and Bungie mean something on par with The Taken King. That add-on for the original Destiny introduced a new enemy type, the Taken, and a new environment called the Dreadnaught. The Taken King also included a new public activity called the Court of Oryx; a new raid, Kings Fall; three new strikes; one new subclass for each of the games three classes; and seven new Crucible maps.

In the short term, Bungie will do its best to keep players engaged with Destiny 2s next event, Crimson Days, which kicks off next week.
