75th Golden Globes Awards 2018: Natalie Portman calls out the jury for an ‘all-male nominations’ and the internet is going crazy
The 75th Golden Globe Awards gave us way too many moments to cherish and Natalie Portman calling out the jury was one of them. Like we all know, this year Hollywood united to show their support against sexual abuse and harassment. But amidst all of that, Natalie Portman said what didn’t occur to a lot of us. Natalie was presenting the award for the Best Director category and before reading out the nominations, she quips, “And here are the all-male nominees”. Now that took over the internet like a storm before Oprah Winfrey delivered her moving speech. Natalie was on point and it was an hilarious moment.
In fact, Barbara Streissand also mentioned later on how there are tonnes of brilliant women directors out there and they must be recognised, too. But the internet is falling in love with Natalie all over again after she took a dig at the nominations. The video is going viral on the internet and even we can’t get over it. But as usual, there are some people who are trolling her for what she said. Well, to each their own. We feel Natalie has killed it and explained a lot of things with just one sentence.
