Natalie Portman Shades 2018 Golden Globes for 'All Male' Best Director Nominees

Ferrera Chastain Spencer Portman

This moment came minutes after Oprah gave her insanely powerful speech, and was the flawless coda to everything that was said. The pair were presenting the award for Best Director, which had been criticized for including only male nominees.

Various people made a decision to wear black in solidarity with the victims who've come forth with allegations of sexual misconduct.

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.

'Me and my friends just bawled out eyes out at Oprah's speech.

Some of Portman's fellow actresses also chimed in with Mindy Kaling tweeting: 'Yas Natalie Get Em Girl'. "Preach!" Evan Rachel Wood wrote, "And Natalie Portman is my f****** Hero!"

The best director category previously received backlash for its lack of female nominees.

On Sunday night, one of the most common refrains was, unsurprisingly, the need for a more inclusive and supportive environment for women-both in Hollywood and beyond.

People following along on social media were quick to praise Portman for making the most of the moment, crowning her the "savage queen". Some 16 years ago, The Hours and Chicago were the last pair to achieve the feat. Throughout the history of Golden Globes, only one woman has ever won the Best Director award and that was Barbara Streisand for Yentl in 1984. The three highest-grossing films previous year were all carried by women. Other women missing from the Best Director category included Mudbound's Dee Rees and Wonder Woman's Patty Jenkins.
