While the Golden Globes have become increasingly more diverse, there are still a few categories that could use a little more diversification. The directing category is still predominantly male. And in case you weren’t aware of that, Natalie Portman made sure to call it out during this year’s Golden Globes.

“And here are the all male nominees,” she said.

And fans were ecstatic about her clap back.

Me and my friends just bawled our eyes out at Oprah’s speech. Then Natalie Portman was like HOLD MY BEER. #theallmalenominees

I said to myself, “How can they follow that powerful speech from Oprah,” and then all of a sudden, Natalie Portman made me hold her tea.
