Those watching the 2024 Oscars red carpet may have noticed that some celebrities wore red pins on their clothing.

If you don’t have the context then you might be wondering exactly what these red pins symbolise.

Below, we explain the meaning and exactly why celebrities are wearing.

What Do The Red Pins At The 2024 Oscars Mean?

The red pins worn by celebrities to the Oscars are in aid of Artists4Ceasefire.

The organisation is “a collective of artists and advocates who have come together in response to the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Israel and Palestine,” according to the website.

In a press release, the organisation explains that the pin symbolises the “collective support for an immediate and permanent ceasefire, the release of all of the hostages and for the urgent delivery of humanitarian aid to civilians in Gaza.”

Almost 400 artists have signed a letter in support of the collective, including Oscar nominees America Ferrera and Bradley Cooper.

Which Celebrities Wore Red Pins To The 2024 Oscars?

Celebrities Mark Ruffalo, Billie Eilish, Ramy Youssef, Ava DuVernay and Eugene Lee Yang were some of the celebrities spotted wearing the red pin to the Oscars.

While speaking to Variety on the red carpet, Youssef explained the meaning behind the pins.

“We’re calling for immediate, permanent cease-fire in Gaza. We’re calling for peace and lasting justice for the people of Palestine,” Youssef told Variety the red carpet. “It’s a universal message of, ‘Let’s stop killing kids. Let’s not be part of more war.’”

“No one has ever looked back at war and thought a bombing campaign was a good idea. To be surrounded by so many artists who are willing to lend their voices, the list is growing. A lot of people are going to be wearing these pins tonight.”
