Globes: Portman takes a jibe at 'all-male' director category

Natalie Portman calls out 'all-male' Golden Globe directing nominees while presenting award

Natalie Portman calls out 'all-male' Golden Globe directing nominees while presenting award

Portman took the stage here on Sunday with actor-filmmaker Ron Howard to present the award.

It's worth noting that "Lady Bird", which won best motion picture, comedy or musical, did not receive a nomination for director Greta Gerwig.

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".

Portman didn't let the opportunity to make a statement slide: "And here are the all-male nominees", she said.

Del Toro was nominated alongside Martin McDonagh for "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", Christopher Nolan for "Dunkirk", Ridley Scott for "All the Money in the World" and Steven Spielberg for "The Post". "Preach!" Evan Rachel Wood wrote, "And Natalie Portman is my f****** Hero!" And in case you weren't aware of that, Natalie Portman made sure to call it out during this year's Golden Globes.
