Natalie Portman threw the flawless amount of shade at the all-male line-up in the Best Director category as she took to the stage to present the award alongside director Ron Howard.

Tell us, HollywoodLifers - what did you think about Natalie's stance against the Golden Globes choice not to nominate any female directors? "And what a hard category to present without saying something about it, so she did it so perfectly".

Natalie Portman made headlines earlier this week when she introduced the Golden Globes directing category that way.

Natalie Portman also levelled criticism at the Los Angeles awards ceremony on Sunday, pointing out no female directors were nominated on the night. However, Natalie didn't let the problem of representation go unnoticed, taking the stage alongside fellow presenter Ron Howard to say, "and here are the all-male nominees".

America Ferrera brought a very special date to the 2018 Golden Globe Awards: her barely-there baby bump. "So backstage I heard they said something about my - I was the only woman to get, did I hear it right, yes, the only woman to get the Best Director award", she said. "There are so many films out there that are so good directed by women".

He therefore submitted that his court being a lower court, is bound by the decision of the appellet court in the instant case. Justice Tsoho explained that the consent judgment is not on merit and can not stop his court from assuming jurisdiction.

Now, Steven Spielberg, who was one of the nominees, has spoken out about the moment.

And while Guillermo Del Toro, 53, won the award for The Shape Of Water, Twitter erupted as viewers reacted to Portman's not-so-subtle dig at the Golden Globes organisation.

Nominations for the Academy Awards will be announced later this month.

Tweeting after the Golden Globes, previous victor Barbra Streisand 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".
