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. 

All of the nominees for Best Director this year, and most of the past years, were men. 

In 77 awards shows, only five women have ever been nominated for Best Director: Barbra Streisand, Jane Campion, Sofia Coppola, Kathryn Bigelow, and Ava DuVernay. Only one woman, Streisand, has won. This year, Bong Joon Ho, Sam Mendes, Todd Phillips, Martin Scorsese, and Quentin Tarantino are nominated for their films.

When They See Us was snubbed too. 

Ava DuVernay's incredible four-part miniseries chronicling the heartbreaking story of the Central Park Five definitely should have been recognized in any of the categories this year. Sadly, however, it did not land a single one. DuVernay isn't sweating it though; the film received 15 Emmy nominations and two wins earlier this year. 

After one fan wished the director a good morning following the news, DuVernay replied, "Thank you. I am! These things are a cherry on top. The sundae is yummy with or without it. And this one has been particularly delicious. Okay, now I want ice cream. xo."

Greta Gerwig definitely should have been on the docket for Best Director, This is the second time she's been overlooked. 

Emma Watson shared a video discussing Gerwig's vision for the classic novel's retelling. In 2018, Gerwig missed out on a director nomination for Lady Bird at the Golden Globes, but was nominated and lost at the Academy Awards. This time, she wasn't given the chance, even though Little Women was nominated in other categories. 

Lorene Scafaria's Hustlers landed J.Lo a Golden Globe nom, but not for the director. 

Scafaria told a brilliant story about cunning women who get what they want no matter the cost. The criminal tale had some people comparing Scafaria to great directors such as Martin Scorsese or Francis Ford Coppola. Either way, the critically acclaimed film wasn't enough for the Hollywood Foreign Press to recognize her. 

Lulu Wang definitely deserved a nod for The Farewell.

Lulu Wang talked through the various interpretations of her script for The Farewell. This story was Awkwafina's first time in a dramatic role and it landed her the Golden Globe nomination. Wang led the charge on this heartfelt story about Asian American families, and she deserved more in the awards sphere.  

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."
