Natalie Portman Heroically Announces “All-Male” Nominees at the Golden Globes

Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear elegant black dresses.

Last night at the Golden Globes, Oprah delivered the incredible speech that everyone’s talking about. But she wasn’t the only one to catch everyone’s attention.

Natalie Portman, with just a few words, called out hypocrisy and showed that she was not even remotely f–king around. See the epic moment below!

The big chatter leading up to Sunday night’s Golden Globes award show, everyone was talking about the black dresses.

Would every woman be wearing a black dress? Was it a visual sign of solidarity or an empty gesture?

(Hint: since these women are doing a lot more than have a matching color scheme, it’s really not an empty gesture)

People also talked about men wearing black in support … but since men are generally dressed in mostly black for these events anyway, would that be significant in any way?

But once people started showing up on the red carpet, talk swiftly turned away from the omnipresent (and gorgeous) black dresses.

Debra Messing (who remains beloved, even though the Will & Grace revival is kind of a mess) called out E! for allegedly not paying Catt Sadler fairly.

The gender pay gap is serious business, folks, and it exists in so many businesses. Sadler quit E! after more than a decade, upon learning that her male costar was allegedly earning twice her salary.

Messing said this on E!‘s red carpet, while being interviewed by Giuliana Rancic.

Eva Longoria, looking pregnant and gorgeous, also called out E! for their alleged pay gap.

The highlight of this Golden Globes night of zero chill was definitely Oprah’s inspiring, powerful speech.

But Oprah wasn’t the only star speaking out or making headlines and waves from that stage.

Natalie Portman and Ron Howard came up on stage for what seemed like it would be a regular, run-of-the-mill presentation of the Best Director category and the announcement of the winner.

But, as you can see here, Natalie Portman announced the nominees by highlighting the fact that every single nominee was male:

“And here are the all-male nominees.”

Honestly? What a great reminder that Natalie Portman was the best possible choice to play Padme Amidala. Sometimes the character and actor match up.

Anyway, this moment did not go unnoticed.

Shonda Rhimes tweeted: “‘And here are the all male nominees.’ Natalie Portman calls it for what it is.”

Sarah Silverman tweeted: “Oh s–t Portman for the win! ‘And here are the all male nominees’ wheeeeWhoooo!!”

We don’t want to give the impression that the Golden Globes were business as usual. They were not.

Oprah was the first black woman in her category.

Sterling K. Brown made history with his award.

Aziz Ansari made history with his award.

But these are long overdue milestones. These are entire demographics of supremely talented actors who have been shut out for years and are only now receiving the recognition that they deserve.

Kind of like plenty of female directors who, many believe, deserved more recognition for their groundbreaking work in 2017.

Robert Yancy Dies; Son of Natalie Cole Was 39

Sad news out of Hollywood today, as a family that’s already been touched by tragedy on several occasions has suffered yet another loss.

Robert Yancy, the son of singer Natalie Cole, was found dead in his San Fernando Valley apartment late last night.

He was just 39 years.

Family members tell TMZ that authorities contacted them at 2:30 on Sunday morning to inform that Robert died of a heart attack.

The death is being listed as a result of natural causes pending the results of a full autopsy and toxicology report.

Yancy’s mother, Natalie Cole, died of congestive heart failure believed to have been brought about by hard drug use in 2015, but those who knew him best say Robert never suffered from substance abuse issues.

Friends tell TMZ that after a number of personal setbacks, Yancy was happy, seemingly healthy, and “turning his life around” in the weeks before his passing.

Robert’s father died of a heart attack at the age of 34, leading many to the conclusion that severe heart disease simply runs in the family.

At least one insider says authorities were clear that there’s no reason to suspect that drugs or foul play were involved in Yancy’s death.

The son of Cole and her first husband, Marvin Yancy, a singer for the R&B group The Independents, Robert was a lifelong music lover who was working in the industry at the time of his death.

Robert gained major media attention last year, when he slammed the Grammys for failing to pay proper tribute to his mother following her unexpected passing.

“She deserves more than that because she has done so much,” he said at the time.

“To have my mother treated with the disdain and disrespect that she was treated with last night, it’s just unacceptable. It was not right.”

Cole, the first black performer to win a Best New Artist Grammy, received no tribute beyond a brief segment in the show’s annual “In Memoriam” montage.

Robert’s grandfather, the legendary jazz musician Nat King Cole, also passed away prematurely, succumbing to lung cancer in 1965 at the age of 45.

Robert Yancy has already been the subject of thousands of heartfelt tributes on social media.

Our thoughts go out to his family during this difficult time.
