Natalie Portman and Barbra Streisand criticise Globes shunning women directors

Not alone! The duo posed with Emma Stone and Billie Jean King on the arrivals carpet

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).

The Golden Globes officially kicked off this year's award season, and boy did it go off with a bang. While wasting no time Natalie Portman said, "And here are the all-male nominees", in a line that definitely wasn't scripted.

And fans were ecstatic about her clap back.

The Black Swan actress and award show veteran surely knew that her "jab" would be followed by reaction shots of the nominees.


In this handout photo provided by NBCUniversal, Presenters Natalie Portman and Ron Howard speak onstage during the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 7, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California. Most of the men looked visibly uncomfortable - though, it's hard to gauge how much of the directors' unease was due to Portman's critique.

Oprah not only made history by becoming the first black woman to receive the Cecil B. DeMille award, but gave a killer speech while accepting it. "There is phenomenal work being done by female directors". "So backstage I heard they said something about my - I was the only woman to get, did I hear it right, yes, the only woman to get the Best Director award", she said. "We lived in the gaps between the stories". Then Natalie Portman was like HOLD MY BEER, ' tweeted on female account user. She used the opportunity to echo the sentiments of the "Me Too" and "Time's Up" movements advocating for protections against workplace harassment and assault.

Guillermo del Toro was then announced as the victor, for his film "The Shape of Water" - which is one of the many Golden Globes-winning movies that still isn't out in the UK.
