Natalie Portman's All-Male Directors Category Remark Prompts Quick Reaction

Natalie Portman's All-Male Directors Category Remark Prompts Quick Reaction

Rather than immediately presenting the award for Best Motion Picture, Drama, as was her charge, Streisand spoke up.

Meyers kicked off Sunday's award show with an opening monologue that tackled the sweeping sexual harassment scandal in Hollywood, including a joke about disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

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

Natalie Portman, presenting the director prize, was not about to let that go unnoticed.

The night may have started off hours before Oprah's speech, but it was her moving words while accepting her Cecil B. DeMille honorary award, which served as a testament to everything the #MeToo campaign stands for.

"For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men". "Many of us were taught not to tattle, it was a culture of silencing and that was normalised", she said. It gave us more freedom.

Luckily, Natalie Portman had it covered. Del Toro, who is Mexican, was the only nominee preventing the line-up from being the all-white male nominees.

While the Golden Globes have become increasingly more diverse, there are still a few categories that could use a little more diversification.

"You wrote a role for a black man, that could only be played by a black man". You can start with Lady Bird.
