See Natalie Portman Zing the Golden Globes for Nominating Only Male Directors

'And here are the all male nominees...' Natalie Portman makes a point as she presents best director at Golden Globes Golden Globes 2018 wrapped: Upsets, #MeToo and a dagger from Natalie Portman

Seth Meyers made the #MeToo movement a cornerstone of his opening monologue; celebrities including Laura Dern delivered inspiring messages as they accepted their awards. Let's just say we're already sketching out a Renaissance painting in this moment's honor.

On the same night as the biggest sartorial protest for women's rights in Hollywood history, the Golden Globes failed to recognize the contributions of women in one major category: Best Director, Motion Picture.

Portman, like most of the female celebrities who attended the event at the Beverly Hilton, wore black to show support for Time's Up, an initiative that seeks to promote equality, wage parity, and inclusion for women.

Although Natalie Portman, 36, only had a few minutes on stage at the 2018 Golden Globes on January 7, she used her time wisely.

The testosterone-dominated category - Guillermo del Toro, Martin McDonagh, Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg - came amid a wave of sexual harassment and assault allegations that have run Hollywood legends including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey out of town.

Some of Portman's fellow actresses also chimed in with Mindy Kaling tweeting: 'Yas Natalie Get Em Girl'. "We need more women directors and more women to be nominated for Best Director".

That was Barbra Streisand who won in 1984 for her film Yentl.

In response to the official Bafta Twitter announcement of the nominations, multiple people shared a gif of Portman onstage at the Golden Globes, while others said "No woman - AGAIN" and "No women". That was 34 years ago.

Patty Jenkins - one of only four women ever to direct a movie with more than a $100 million budget - earned both critical and commercial acclaim for Wonder Woman, which made $821,847,012 at the worldwide box office, but was snubbed.
