Globes: Portman takes a jibe at 'all-male' director category

When asked about Natalie Portman's apparent jab at the Golden Globes' all-male field of Best Director candidates, Spielberg was quick to name a few women he thinks are deserving of the Oscar equivalent, including Mudbound's Dee Rees and Lady Bird's Greta Gerwig.

Portman attended the awards night to announce the victor for the Best Director category and after co-presenter Ron Howard introduced the nominees she sarcastically said, "And here are the all-male nominees".

Toro, who looked a tad flustered, won the award for The Shape of Water, a Cold War-era monster movie and remixed fairy tale musical, starring Sally Hawkins and Michael Shannon.

Only one woman has ever won in the category is Barbra Streisand, for "Yentl" in 1984.

Natalie Portman, right, and America Ferrera arrive at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night.

Portman didn't let the opportunity to make a statement slide: "And here are the all-male nominees", she said.
