Blanca Blanco Explains Why She Didn't Wear Black to Golden Globes 2018

Luckily, Natalie Portman had it covered.

The actress graced the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night to announce the victor for the Best Director category, which to the dismay of many included only male directors.

Guillermo del Toro won for "The Shape of Water". "Folks! Time's up. We need more women directors and more women to be nominated for best director", she said.

Unfortunately, the category was best actress in a musical or comedy.

Natalie Portman called out the Golden Globes for nominating only men for best director.

'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'. "Then Natalie Portman was like HOLD MY BEER".

Of the few women allowed to make movies, fewer still are backed by a studio willing to fund a major awards campaign.

Ferrera, who won a Golden Globe for her role in Ugly Betty in 2007, dazzled on the red carpet in a floor-length sparkly black gown and long black blazer.

The admonishment continued when Barbra Streisand was introduced as having "made history as the only woman to receive a Globe for directing".

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. "Lady Bird", directed by Greta Gerwig, won for Best Motion Picture and Best Actress.

While the HFPA is nearly entirely removed from the "insider" industry precursors that traditionally line the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards (its membership encompasses roughly 100 journalists, not film professionals), it does offer invaluable visibility directly or indirectly.
