Natalie Portman Calls Out 'All Male Nominees' For Best Director
CALIFORNIA (CNN) – While presenting the Best Director award alongside Ron Howard, Natalie Portman took the opportunity to point out the obvious: Not a single woman was nominated.
Barbra Streisand later pointed out that she was the last woman to receive a Golden Globe for Best Director when she won for “Yentl.”
“So backstage I heard they said something about my, uh, I was the only woman to get — did I hear right, yes — the only woman to get the Best Director award.
We need more women directors and more women to be nominated for Best Director,” she said.
“I also would have liked to see director @PattyJenks and her film @WonderWomanFilm recognized because it shows how strong women can be, not only as characters but also at the box office.
