Expect to see a lot of black on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes.

Many prominent actresses (including nominees Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep and Emma Stone) will be wearing black gowns to the awards show early next year to protest sexual harassment in Hollywood, according to multiple reports. The trend will start at the Globes on Jan. 7 and may continue throughout awards season. 

ET has reached out to Hollywood Foreign Press Association reps for comment.

Actresses haven't been shy about speaking out against sexual misconduct in Hollywood. Though the storm started with allegations of decades of sexual harassment and assault by Harvey Weinstein, James Toback, Jeffrey Tambor, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Louis C.K., Russell Simmons, Dustin Hoffman and Adam Venit have all made headlines for claims of sexual misconduct.

While speaking with ET last month, Chastain opened up about the recent string of scandals, revealing that she thinks the problem is "more than just about gender." 

“It's about everything in this industry. I mean, this industry, we're very quick to separate ourselves from the current administration, or things that are going on in the world," she explained. 

“I want to be a part of an industry that is very inclusive,” she added. “One that teaches empathy, and the only way you do that is, you learn about someone who doesn't look like you. And I think there's a generation of artists that that is their goal.”
