Spielberg was one of five men nominated for best director at this year's Golden Globes, when Natalie Portman publicly called out the "all-male nominees".

"I think it was great!" he wrote. Rather than immediately presenting the award for Best Motion Picture, Drama, as was her charge, Streisand spoke up. "And here are the all MALE nominees", she quipped, to knowing laughter. "I really feel that this is going to be the past year that that's true", she said in reference to the gender disparity. "We have some unbelievable women that have come forward, you know "Mudbound" and "Lady Bird",'" he added, referring to Dee Rees and Greta Gerwig.

Another said: "Natalie Portman pulled a Kanye West", followed by the hashtag "Golden Globes 2018". "At first I said the #GoldenGlobes2018 should of ended after @Oprahs MIC DROPPING life changing speech. but then good ole natalie Portman comes in CLUTCH with that #allmale nominees line", the indivdual wrote.

Portman's jab was subtle, but on message with many other women who addressed the issue of equal pay and sexual misconduct throughout the evening.

Guillermo del Toro was then announced as the victor, for his film "The Shape of Water" - which is one of the many Golden Globes-winning movies that still isn't out in the UK. Before announcing the victor she highlighted the lack of female nominees after Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig was snubbed, by simply saying: "Here are all the male nominees". "It made me laugh, and it made me smile", the "Wonder Woman" director said.

Tweeting after the Golden Globes, previous victor Barbra Streisand said: "I also would have liked to see director @PattyJenks and her film @WonderWomanFilm recognized because it shows how strong women can be, not only as characters but also at the box office".
