Natalie Portman followed up Oprah Winfrey’s speech by throwing shade at the fact that the Best Director category for the Golden Globes were all males. Portman read the nominees alongside Ron Howard before ending the introduction by saying, “And here are the all-male nominees.”

Her are the reactions on social media to Portman’s comment at the Golden Globes.

Hours before the Golden Globe Awards, the #WhyWeWearBlack protest is already in full effect with plenty of big names speaking out and answering the question of why they will be wearing black to tonight’s Hollywood awards show. Taking to her Instagram story, Eva Longoria rounded up several celeb motivations behind the black motif. “We wear black for many reasons,” she said next to Portman. “One, to support the brave women who have come out with their stories. To those that are still silenced, we are with you.”

Portman‘s date to the Golden Globe Awards was America Ferrera. The actresses walked the red carpet together, both wearing black in support of Time’s Up: a movement whose letter both women, alongside hundreds of others in show business, signed ahead of the campaign’s New Year’s Day launch.

This year’s Golden Globes ceremony is the first to be held since Hollywood’s pervasive issues with sexual misconduct have been exposed. It’s expected actresses attending the ceremony will wear black in protest against the sexual harassment issue. Men will also wear black on the red carpet in solidarity.

In addition to the competitive awards, this year’s Golden Globes will honor Oprah Winfrey, star of the upcoming A Wrinkle In Time, with the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille Award for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.”

For the first time, NBC will stream the ceremony on and via the NBC App to pay TV subscribers. The show will also be available on Century Link Stream, DirecTV Now, Fubo TV, Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, Sony PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV in markets where the local NBC station is carried.
