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

While another tweeted: "Natalie Portman calling out "all male directors" reminded me of Kanye West after he took Taylor Swift's moment away from her". And while she attended the awards ceremony as a presenter, it was her accurate and cutting remark while giving out the award for best director that had everyone buzzing, CNN reported. "He singled out several awards season contenders from women directors, adding that "'Mudbound, ' "Lady Bird" and "Wonder Woman" are all terrific".

Natalie Portman presented at the 2018 Golden Globes.

When asked about the comment whilst speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Spielberg said while there were, unfortunately, no female director nominees at the Golden Globes, he is confident there will be at the Oscars.

Spielberg was nominated in the category for his work on The Post, but ultimately lost out to The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro.

"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".

Portman's jab was subtle, but on message with many other women who addressed the issue of equal pay and sexual misconduct throughout the evening.

As a fan of trolls, this is something that absolutely made me perk up.

The 2018 Academy Awards nominations will be announced on January 23.

It was a biting remark that became even more impactful when Greta Gerwig (previously presumed to be a shoe-in for the category) picked up a win for Best Picture, Comedy right after.

Streisand, who won a best director Globe for Yentl in 1984, was brought to the stage to introduce the best drama category.
