Hey, Female Directors, Steven Spielberg Has Some Good News For You

Not alone! The duo posed with Emma Stone and Billie Jean King on the arrivals carpet

Standing alongside her fellow presenter, director Ron Howard, Portman made it a point to call out the category's major faux pas.

Tell us, HollywoodLifers - what did you think about Natalie's stance against the Golden Globes choice not to nominate any female directors?

This moment came minutes after Oprah gave her insanely powerful speech, and was the ideal coda to everything that was said.

"And here are the all male nominees", she said before reading out the list. "I really feel that this is going to be the a year ago that that's true", she said in reference to the gender disparity.

And now, American director Steven Spielberg, who was nominated for the award and is also very much, ahem, male, has responded to the 36-year-old actress' call.

Natalie Portman presented at the 2018 Golden Globes.

California State Teachers Retirement System raised its stake in United States Steel by 1.9% during the second quarter. Looking at the stock's movement on the chart, United States Steel Corporation recorded a 52-week high of $41.83.

In the same interview, ET tapped Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman-which happens to be the highest-grossing film directed by a woman and the highest-grossing superhero origin movie of all time-to hear her thoughts.

The 2018 nominations will be announced on January 23. "It's not just that we should do it because we want women to do it- it's profitable and it's what people want", she said.

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

According to Glamour, a female director hasn't won a Golden Globe in over 25 years - a staggering statistic given the number of women creating quality films every year.

During the ceremony itself, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Greta Gerwig and many more women spoke at length about the industry's responsibility to put sexual assault and misconduct firmly in the past.

And when it came to announce those vying for the best director award, Portman, who wore black in support of the Time's Up movement, pointedly observed: 'And here are the all male nominees'.
