Golden Globes: 10 Memorable Moments From the Show

Golden Globes: 10 Memorable Moments From the Show

Luckily, Natalie Portman had it covered.

Natalie Portman got in a not-so-subtle jab at the lack of female representation in the Best Directors category last night at the Golden Globes.

The two followed a rousing speech by Cecil B. De Mille honoree Oprah Winfrey who had promised girls and young women watching the show that 'a new day is on the horizon.

That struggle intensified upon the announcement of this year's Golden Globe nominations, which ultimately saw Lady Bird filmmaker Greta Gerwig - despite the hefty monetary, critical, and industry-wide footprint left by her solo directorial debut - shut out of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's five-strong set of best director nominees.

The statement won rave reviews on social media. She took home the award for Yentl in 1984.

"That was 34 years ago".

"We are honored to be here to present the award for best director", Howard said. "There's so many films out there that are so good, directed by women".

The Best Director prize went to Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water, who won over Martin McDonagh for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World), and Steven Spielberg (The Post).

It would be hard for most to follow Oprah Winfrey on a stage, especially after she's just given a rousing speech on female empowerment while receiving the Cecile B. DeMille Award, but such was the task for co-presenters Portman and Ron Howard.
