As well as serving serious looks on this year’s Oscars’ red carpet, maybe stars have taken the opportunity to make political statements by opting to don pins.

One of the most popular pins of the night, spotted on the likes of Billie Eilish, her brother and fellow musician Finneas and Poor Things stars Ramy Youssef and Mark Ruffalo has been the Artists4Ceasefire symbol.

The organisation calls for “an immediate de-escalation and ceasefire in Gaza and Israel before another life is lost.”

Documentary filmmaker Kaouther Ben Hania, and producer Nadim Cheikhrouha were also spotted wearing the pin on the red carpet.

“We’re calling for immediate, permanent ceasefire in Gaza. We’re calling for peace and lasting justice for the people of Palestine,” Youssef told Variety‘s Marc Malkin on the red carpet.

“It’s a universal message of, ‘Let’s stop killing kids. Let’s not be part of more war.’ No one has ever looked back at war and thought a bombing campaign was a good idea. To be surrounded by so many artists who are willing to lend their voices, the list is growing. A lot of people are going to be wearing these pins tonight. There’s a lot of talking heads on the news, this is a space of talking hearts. We’re trying to have this big beam to humanity.”

Currently, hundreds of protesters have shut down a major section of Hollywood during the Oscars red carpet.
