If more artists and performers were to demand inclusion riders in their contracts then perhaps more diverse casts and films will make their way to the screen - and to the Academy Awards.

When the nominees were stood up, she declared: 'Look around everybody, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed. In addition to a little gold statue, the Three Billboards actor also left with a standing ovation for her inspiring speech.

The highlight of this year's Oscars was undoubtedly Frances McDormand's win for Best Actress and all the things she had to say, namely "inclusion rider".

A representative for McDormand told CNN that an individual walked off with McDormand's Oscar while she was at the Governor's Ball, just following the awards ceremony.
