Top Pop Culture Moments of 2018

A lot of important pop culture moments happened this year, and a surprising number of them had to do with politics. Of course, there was also the royal wedding, a number of groundbreaking movies, the return of Harry Potter (to Broadway) and Mary Poppins (to the screen), as well as a few surprising celebrities we said goodbye. Here are the most important pop culture moments that happened in 2018, according to AP:

  • January: The #MeToo movement takes over the Golden Globe Awards through a sea of black outfits. At the Grammy's, stars wear white roses, and Kesha performs a tearful rendition of "Praying."
  • February: Black Panther hits theaters to rave reviews and critical acclaim. 
  • March: At the Academy Awards, a trio of Harvey Weinstein's accusers—Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek, and Annabella Sciorra—take the stage, while Frances McDormand spills the beans about "inclusion riders."
