And, these celebs agree!
In accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award at tonight's Golden Globes, Oprah Winfrey delivered a powerful and poignant speech in which she advocated on behalf of women, people of color, the impoverished, journalism, truth, and human decency. The Black Swan actress blasted the voters of the awards show, which are organised by Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), for failing to include any female directors in its Best Director category as she took to the stage at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles to present the prize with Ron Howard.
Natalie Portman called out the Golden Globes for nominating only men for best director.
While Natalie's comment had the internet buzzing, there were others who did not see it coming.
The Best Director prize went to Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water, who won over Martin McDonagh for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World), and Steven Spielberg (The Post). Natalie was on point and it was an hilarious moment.More news: Malaysia to resume search for missing flight MH370 in southern Indian Ocean

Here a hint: the nominees were victor del Toro for The Shape of Water, Martin McDonagh for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Christopher Nolan for Dunkirk, Ridley Scott for All the Money in the World, and Steven Spielberg for The Post.
Barbra Streisand remains the only woman to have won the accolade, as she took the honor for directing the 1983 film Yentl; she received a follow-up nomination for directing 1991's The Prince of Tides.
Even Mindy Kaling was super impressed. 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.
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.
