Natalie Portman is done pretending not to notice the gender disparity in Hollywood filmmaking.
While on stage at the Golden Globes, Portman called out the industry with a single well-placed word.
Portman went on stage with Ron Howard, who announced that they were here to present the award for Golden Globes.
“And here are the all-male nominees,” said Portman.
Portman was exactly right, of course — the five filmmakers up for the award were Guillermo del Toro, Martin McDonagh, Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott, and Steven Spielberg. It’s not at all unusual for the Best Director field to consist entirely of men. It’s just unusual for someone to call attention that fact.
