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

Ferrera Chastain Spencer Portman

The five nominated directors had the grace to look somewhat sheepish in the aftermath. "We need more women directors and more women to be nominated for best director".

The testosterone-dominated category - Guillermo del Toro, Martin McDonagh, Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg - came amid a wave of sexual harassment and assault allegations that have run Hollywood legends including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey out of town.

The Superstore star also shared a photo of her and Portman, who joined Ferrera in wearing an all-black floor-length gown on Sunday, outside of Ferrera's house, before heading to the show together.

"Yas Natalie Get Em Girl", tweeted the actress and writer Mindy Kaling.

Another female wrote: "Me and my friends just bawled our eyes out at Oprah's speech".

"I couldn't believe someone had to immediately follow Oprah and then Natalie Portman comes through with that", Twitter user said.

Barbra Streisand remains the only woman to have won the accolade, as she took the honor for directing the 1983 film Yentl; she received a follow-up nomination for directing 1991's The Prince of Tides.

After Natalie's remark, Barbra Streisand took to the stage and noted she was the last female director to win a Golden Globe for her work, and that was in 1984, Entertainment Weekly reported.

When James Franco called up Tommy Wiseau to the stage during his acceptance speech for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for The Disaster Artist, The Room director was not afraid to try and steal the spotlight!
