This political accessory was the most-worn item at the Golden Globes

With one withering comment, Natalie Portman made a big statement

Seth Meyers made the #MeToo movement a cornerstone of his opening monologue; celebrities including Laura Dern delivered inspiring messages as they accepted their awards.

Natalie Portman used her stage time at the Golden Globes while presenting, to slam the awards show for its lack of female nominees for best director! To introduce Barbra Streisand, who was presenting the award for Best Picture, the announcer made sure to emphasize that she was the only woman to have ever won a Golden Globe for Best Director. Let's just say we're already sketching out a Renaissance painting in this moment's honor.

Natalie Portman wants some more women in her life. "Lady Bird" won Best Picture - Comedy or Musical, so you'd think director Greta Gerwig would've at least been nominated.

Oh, the best director victor, by the way, was Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water.

After all, when the nominees were first announced, this was one category that was called out for failing to recognise the efforts of female directors and directors of colour.

Many celebs and fans took to Twitter to praise Portman for savaging the awards, where winners' speeches were dominated by the call for equality.

In my humble opinion, I was very disappointed that director Dee Rees and her powerful film @mudboundmovie wasn't even nominated.

She talked both about her experience as a little girl watching Sidney Poitier win an Academy Award in 1964, and about women speaking truth-a prevalent theme last night given all that's happened in Hollywood the last few months. "The three highest-grossing films a year ago were all carried by women".
