She also opened up about the deep-seated issued facing creators as they attempt to overturn the old Hollywood traditions and how the system "must learn to expand its concepts of race, gender equality, and inclusion in regard to its perceptions of art across the board."

As Vulture notes, an HFPA screening of Girls Trip did take place in July, the same month the movie hit theaters and many months before the time of voting.
