  • Ferrera Chastain Spencer Portman

Just a week after announcing that she and husband Ryan Piers Williams are expecting their first child together, Ferrera showed off her bump while walking the red carpet at Sunday night's awards show with fellow #TimesUp supporter Natalie Portman. It has also established a legal defense fund for victims of sexual assault. When it was her turn, with an ice-cold expression, she said, "And here are the all-male nominees".

As always, social media was split.

They took over at their 47 with 40 seconds remaining and got into field-goal range on Blake Bortles' scrambles of 20 and 12 yards. Bortles, who was 6 of 15 for 33 yards in the first half, also was Jacksonville's leading rusher with three carries for 35 yards.

Even Mindy Kaling was super impressed. "Then Natalie Portman was like HOLD MY BEER". Since the Golden Globes' inaugural ceremony in 1944, seven films directed by women have been nominated in the best director category, though only five women have received the honor as two of them received matching nods (albeit in different years). She took home the award for Yentl in 1984. Some 16 years ago, The Hours and Chicago were the last pair to achieve the feat. Only one woman has ever won the award for best director in the Golden Globes' 75-year history. Stories of misogyny in Hollywood were so disturbing that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission launched an investigation into sexism against female directors in 2016 - over a year before the Weinstein revelations and the #MeToo movement.

The best director category previously received backlash for its lack of female nominees.
