The directing category is still predominantly male.

Natalie Portman and Ron Howard speak onstage during the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 7, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.

In the now viral moment, Portman introduces the "all-male nominees", exacting gasps of disbelief from the crowd at the Beverly Hilton, as well as the millions watching from home.

And fans were ecstatic about her clap back.

The gorgeous actress, who is expecting her first child with husband Ryan Piers Williams, wore a long, black, sparkly gown paired with a black blazer. Natalie was presenting the award for the Best Director category and before reading out the nominations, she quips, "And here are the all-male nominees".

Natalie Portman wants some more women in her life.

Now, Steven Spielberg, who was one of the nominees, has spoken out about the moment. Portman's message merely points to a larger issue in Hollywood: wide-ranging underrepresentation for women, people of color, and women of color. It gave us more freedom. But, it is necessary if we want diverse stories from diverse storytellers.

"I was the only woman - did I hear right?"

Spielberg was nominated in the category for his work on The Post, but ultimately lost out to The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro.

Luckily, Natalie Portman had it covered.

"In my humble opinion, I was very disappointed that director Dee Rees and her powerful film @mudboundmovie wasn't even nominated", she said. "But their time is up", said Oprah in a soul-stirring speech. "They're the women whose names we'll never know".

If Oprah's Golden Globes speech was the definition of Hollywood's strong approach to abuse, Natalie Portman just added more fuel to the fire.
