The Golden Globes has had a contentious relationship with women directors, namely because it refuses to recognize them for their accomplishments.
It's been two years since most women attending the 2018 Golden Globes wore all black in support of the Time's Up movement, and Natalie Portman called out the Hollywood Foreign Press for nominating only men in the Best Director category. There's still a problem with diversity and representation.
This year's nominees for Best Director are, once again, all men, and many in the entertainment industry are sick of it. Even though plenty of women charged some of the best films (that were nominated in other categories), they weren't recognized for their work. As awards season begins again, here's hoping the lack of diversity isn't a trend.
At the 2018 Golden Globes, Natalie Portman called out the all-male director nominees.
Many of the celebrities attending the awards show in 2018 were shocked at Portman's shade, but thought it was well-deserved. So many women-led films deserved more recognition that year and in past years, too. Women have often been ignored behind-the-scenes in the film industry for too long, and it's not going unnoticed.
Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman, said to ET News, "Look, it's been a little glaring that women directors don't get nominated so often. And it is odd, particularly when their films are being celebrated in every other way."
