Sunday night, actor Natalie Portman set the Golden Globes aflame with a single, cutting, seemingly off-the-cuff comment when she helped present the award for best director of a motion picture drama, alongside Ron Howard. Then Natalie Portman was like HOLD MY BEER, ' tweeted on female account user.

Admitting that he had made several calls, Debkumar argued that there was nothing wrong in his desire to marry Sara. He was produced before a district court and on Monday he will be taken to Mumbai for further investigation.

Portman was exactly right, of course - the five filmmakers up for the award were Guillermo del Toro, Martin McDonagh, Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott, and Steven Spielberg. Gerwig recently won Best Director from the National Society of Film Critics. Dee Rees' "Mudbound" also received glowing praise for its depiction of American rural life. That's not to blame the directors themselves, it's blaming the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for honoring her film while ignoring the person who made it. It's just unusual for someone to call attention that fact.
