Natalie Portman Calls Out 'All Male' Award Nominees

Natalie Portman Calls Out 'All Male' Award Nominees

From host Seth Meyers to just about every female victor and presenter, no one shied away from addressing the sexual misconduct allegations that have swept through Hollywood at the 2018 Golden Globes. The actress called out the lack of female director nominees while presenting the award for Best Director, alongside actor, Ron Howard, 63. Of the five other female directors who have been nominated at the Golden Globes - Jane Campion (The Piano), Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation), Ava DuVernay (Selma) and Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty) - DuVernay is the only non-white woman. Natalie was on point and it was an hilarious moment.

On the contrary, some people argued that Portman's words took the shine off a memorable moment for Guillermo Del Toro - a director that frequently casts women as the main characters in his films and as a person, the Mexican director is widely acknowledged as one of the nicest people in Hollywood.

Watch Natalie call out the Globes in the video below.

In the end, the award for best director went to Guillermo Del Toro for The Shape Of Water.

The all-male nominees for the Best Director category included victor del Toro for "The Shape of Water", 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".
