2. SOUNDBITE (English) Barry Jenkins, director, on the increasing frequency of winners making social and political statements at award shows:
"Well, I think right now we're living in a time where so many things that were allowed to pass you know just simply won't cut it anymore. I think it's a really beautiful way I think what's happening is in the same way that in these films you see especially this year so many different people telling someone different kinds of stories making people feel like they have to express themselves. And in the most honest authentic way possible."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Alfonso Cuaron, director:
"Well, I hope it doesn't become just like a seasonal trend. You know? And there is a continuity in all the conversations. I don't think that it's just about 'Which is the conversation now' and in other words, it's not like 'What is the fashion this year versus next year?' It should be something that is an ongoing conversation when we're talking about the important issues. And, like, the #MeToo should keep on going and evolving together with very important issues about diversity."
