With one withering comment, Natalie Portman made a big statement

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. "And here are the all-male nominees", Portman said, before reading the names of the men nominated for Best Director. Barbra Streisand, who was nominated twice, is the only woman to have ever won. Kathryn Bigelow was next in line, and received a nomination for helming 2008's The Hurt Locker (the film that would ultimately shepherd her into the winner's circle at the Oscars) and again in 2012 for directing Zero Dark Thirty.

The category caused controversy when the nominees were announced previous year (17), as many had predicted Lady Bird's Greta Gerwig and Mudbound's Dee Rees would make the shortlist.

While Gerwig's inclusion among 2018 nominees Guillermo del Toro, Ridley Scott, Steven Spielberg, Martin McDonagh, and Christopher Nolan would have been welcome (and deserved), this year's Golden Globe Awards did make strides for female-centric films in general.

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

Here's hoping that the HFPA hears these comments from entertainment industry members as well as fans and selects a more diverse group of nominees that better represents the many nonmale, nonwhite members of Hollywood for the 2019 Golden Globes.
