Tell us, HollywoodLifers - what did you think about Natalie's stance against the Golden Globes choice not to nominate any female directors?
When Natalie Portman and [name] presented Guillermo del Toro with the 2018 Golden Globe for Best Director, Natalie couldn't resist giving everyone in a quick reminder just who was missing from the category at large.
After co-presenter Ron Howard announced the category, Portman added with an expert level of shade, "And here are the all-male nominees".
Oprah Winfrey had just given a fiery speech, promising girls and young women viewers that "a new day is on the horizon". "And here are the all-male nominees", Portman said, before reading the names of the men nominated for Best Director.
Immediately after Natalie's bold comment, stars like Jane The Virgin actress Gina Rodriguez, 33, and How To Get Away With Murder's Matt McGorry, tweeted their praise for Natalie. "Then Natalie Portman was like HOLD MY BEER".
Barbra Streisand is the only woman who has ever won the Golden Globes award for film directing in the show's 75 year history. She took home the award for Yentl in 1984.
"We are honored, " Howard began as the pair began to open the envelope containing the winner's identity, "to be here to present the award for best director". "There's so many films out there that are so good, directed by women". Stories of misogyny in Hollywood were so disturbing that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission launched an investigation into sexism against female directors in 2016 - over a year before the Weinstein revelations and the #MeToo movement.
Unfortunately, the category was best actress in a musical or comedy.
