Natalie Portman's All-Male Directors Category Remark Prompts Quick Reaction

Golden Globes Best Dressed 2018

The irony was not lost on Natalie Portman, who was tasked with announcing the category.

Natalie Portman is making news for what she said at the January 7 Golden Globes.

The Best Director prize went to Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water, who won over Martin McDonagh for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World), and Steven Spielberg (The Post).

Unfortunately, the category was best actress in a musical or comedy.

One of the most glaring snubs in this year's movie nominations came in the best director category, where Greta Gerwig was passed over for her much-loved "Lady Bird".

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.




'Me and my friends just bawled out eyes out at Oprah's speech.

The admonishment continued when Barbra Streisand was introduced as having "made history as the only woman to receive a Globe for directing".

Winfrey spoke after she was awarded the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement, the first black woman to be so honored.

In my humble opinion, I was very disappointed that director Dee Rees and her powerful film @mudboundmovie wasn't even nominated.

On Sunday, the vast majority of attendees at the 2018 Golden Globes wore black to bring attention to many issues, including gender inequality via the Time's Up movement. "We need more women directors and more women to be nominated for Best Director".

Left out of the nominations were the female directors of some highly acclaimed films from a year ago, including Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird), Patty Jenkin (Wonder Woman), and Dee Rees (Mudbound).
