10 Memorable Moments From the Show — Golden Globes

The air of change Portman and Ferrera were among the many stars to sign the Time's Up campaign letter ahead of the New Year's Day launch

Give Natalie Portman an award for being Natalie Portman.

After co-presenter Ron Howard announced the category, Portman added with an expert level of shade, "And here are the all-male nominees". Now that took over the internet like a storm before Oprah Winfrey delivered her moving speech. It has also established a legal defense fund for victims of sexual assault. Yes, Portman was calling out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for failing to nominate any female directors this year - including Greta Gerwig, whose film Lady Bird won Golden Globes for Best Picture, Comedy and Best Actress for Saoirse Ronan.

The statement won rave reviews on social media.

"And Natalie Portman is my f***ing hero", Evan Rachel Wood chimed in.

Ice, freezing rain possible Sunday
Freezing rain, possibly mixed with sleet is possible between 3 and 4 a.m. and then freezing rain likely after 4 a.m. Temperatures will warm faster from the south, so there will be a quicker transition from anything frozen to rain.

'Me and my friends just bawled out eyes out at Oprah's speech. "Then Natalie Portman was like HOLD MY BEER". She took home the award for Yentl in 1984.

"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", Streisand told the audience, CNN reports. Some 16 years ago, The Hours and Chicago were the last pair to achieve the feat. "We need more women directors and more women to be nominated for best director".

While the HFPA is nearly entirely removed from the "insider" industry precursors that traditionally line the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards (its membership encompasses roughly 100 journalists, not film professionals), it does offer invaluable visibility directly or indirectly.

It would be hard for most to follow Oprah Winfrey on a stage, especially after she's just given a rousing speech on female empowerment while receiving the Cecile B. DeMille Award, but such was the task for co-presenters Portman and Ron Howard. The three highest-grossing films previous year were all carried by women. Stories of misogyny in Hollywood were so disturbing that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission launched an investigation into sexism against female directors in 2016 - over a year before the Weinstein revelations and the #MeToo movement.
