With one withering comment, Natalie Portman made a big statement

Time’s Up — whose members include many Globes attendees including Reese Witherspoon Gal Gadot and Emma Stone — unveiled itself Monday with full-page newspaper ads

And when it came to announce those vying for the best director award, Portman, who wore black in support of the Time's Up movement, pointedly observed: 'And here are the all male nominees'.

A female-directed movie ended up receiving top awards this year, however.
