Oscars 2017: Stars on red carpet wear blue ribbons in support of ACLU

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Some stars walking the red carpet before the Academy Awards sported blue ribbons on their gowns and tuxedos.

The ribbons were the brainchild of the American Civil Liberties Union. The organization, which has been in the spotlight fighting President Donald Trump's travel ban, encouraged celebrities to wear the ribbon to show their support "for the rights and civil liberties guaranteed by the Constitution to everyone in the United States."

Among the celebrities to wear the blue ribbons: Ruth Negga ("Loving"), Lin-Manuel Miranda ("Moana") and his mother as well as "Moonlight" director Barry Jenkins.
