Natalie Portman Calls Out 'All Male' Award Nominees

Meryl Streep made a poignant speech at last year's Golden Globes about Donald Trump's political policies

Portman attended the awards night to announce the victor for the Best Director category and after co-presenter Ron Howard introduced the nominees she sarcastically said, "And here are the all-male nominees".

Announcing the nominees for Best Director alongside Ron Howard, Portman delivered a little bit of truth-a reminder that men still dominate in award shows' biggest categories. "Folks, Time's Up!" she said.

But the person with the best line of the night was Natalie Portman. Yes, Portman was calling out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for failing to nominate any female directors this year - including Greta Gerwig, whose film Lady Bird won Golden Globes for Best Picture, Comedy and Best Actress for Saoirse Ronan.

However, he remained positive, explaining: "You can't live in fear, you've just got to play and enjoy it". And, as the first half progressed, they forced Hart, at least, into earnest action.

Guillermo Del Toro went on to win the much-deserved award for his tremendous The Shape of Water, but movie fans were split with regards to Portman's speech.

"Yas Natalie Get Em Girl", tweeted the actress and writer Mindy Kaling.

After Natalie's remark, Barbra Streisand took to the stage and noted she was the last female director to win a Golden Globe for her work, and that was in 1984, Entertainment Weekly reported.

They discovered her cellphone and different assets inside, cops stated, while her satchel was found at a close-by business. She sent her roommate a text that she was being followed by suspicious man who then followed her in a blue truck.

Women make up just 7% of the directors who helm the top 250 films, according to the San Diego State's Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film.

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. Nope! Dee Rees of "Mudbound" would've also been a good option, or even Patty Jenkins of "Wonder Woman", although that one might be a stretch.

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