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.

Oscar Nominees Read Mean Tweets: Go F–k Yourself, Ryan Gosling!

The moment that stole the show at the 2017 Academy Awards was a decidedly unscripted one:

The announcement for the night's top honor was botched in epic fashion, leading to La La Land being announced as Best Picture, when the voters had actually selected Moonlight.

But once it was all sorted out and the Steve Harvey jokes were made, the right film took home the Oscar, and everyone was happy.

Well, except for the people who were digitally roasted in the evening's Mean Tweets segment.

If you're a regular Jimmy Kimmel Live! viewer, you know that the late night host and noted Matt Damon hater regularly has celebrities read Twitter's harshest burns about themselves on his show.

Last night, he subjected recent Oscar nominees to the same treatment, and while the tweets were arguably milder than usual, it was still fun to see Hollywood's best and brightest react to harsh observations to the tune of "Everybody Hurts."

"Samuel L. Jackson has resting fart face," tweeted one online insult comic.

"Emma Stone looks like a crack whore in every role she plays," observed another aspiring Don Rickles.

Of course, real talent is when you can use one Oscar winner to insult another, like the hero who tweeted:

"Casey Affleck is the real life version of Billy Bob Thornton's character in Sling Blade."

God bless you, sir.

Check out the rest of the roast in the clip below.

You'll never look at Lin-Manuel Miranda's haircut the same again:
