Natalie Portman: Our cause raises $14m in 2 weeks

09 January 2018

And, these celebs agree!

From host Seth Meyers to just about every female victor and presenter, no one shied away from addressing the sexual misconduct allegations that have swept through Hollywood at the 2018 Golden Globes.

After co-presenter Ron Howard announced the category, Portman added with an expert level of shade, "And here are the all-male nominees".

"Here are all the male nominees", she said as the names of Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Steven Spielberg (The Post), All the Money in the World (Ridley Scott) and the eventual victor Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water).

While Natalie's comment had the internet buzzing, there were others who did not see it coming. Natalie was on point and it was an hilarious moment. However, when he took the stage, he made sure to ask the Globes to not play the wrap-up-your-speech-music, so he could shed light on the "fantastic women" who had worked on his film.

Natalie shared a video of the twosome on their way to the awards.

Zarif to Trump: Iranians have right to vote and protest
Trump's tweets prompt some experts to worry that the protesters will now be labeled as puppets of the American government. In moments of crisis, Iran's government may rightly fear for its existence and unleash its fury against its own citizens.

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.

"We are honored, " Howard began as the pair began to open the envelope containing the winner's identity, "to be here to present the award for best director".

That was Barbra Streisand who won in 1984 for her film Yentl.

Even Mindy Kaling was super impressed.

Natalie showed up to the globes - with America Ferrera, who is pregnant with her first child - in all black, much like the majority of stars who hit the red carpet in support of the Time's Up and #MeToo movements.

Luckily, Natalie Portman had it covered.
