Natalie attended a Lady Bird Screening at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood yesterday night, where she moderated the post Q&A with her pal Greta Gerwig. Variety has an interesting article about it, and here are a couple of instagram posts taken at the theatre:
According to ET Online, Natalie will attend Women´s March in Los Angeles next Saturday. Viola Davis, Elizabeth Banks, Allison Janney, Connie Britton, Sarah Hyland, Mila Kunis, Eva Longoria, Ellen Barkin, Rob Reiner, Mary Steenburgen, along with performers Andy Grammer and Keala Settle, also will take the stage:
According to a press release from the Women’s March LA Foundation, this year’s march will encourage participants to use their vote, and will have voter registration available on-site. Speakers will address issues such as voter turnout, access, restrictions and intimidation and will discuss a plan of action leading up to the midterm elections in November 2018 and beyond.
The event will kick off in Pershing Square in downtown L.A. at 8:30 a.m., followed by the march at 10 A.M., and festivities are expected to continue until 3 p.m.
There is no doubt that Natalie’s shade during the award for best director at the Golden Globes has been one of the most commented moments these last two days. There have been all kinds of reactions, mostly positive, highlighting the audacity of the moment, but she has also been accused of being unnecessarily rude to the honored directors that night. Whatever the opinions on it, it´s obvious that it has served to generate debate about the lack of representation of women directors in the industry. Greta Gerwig was asked about it in “The View” this morning:
Steven Spielberg, one of the nominees at the Golden Globes, and Patty Jenkins, were asked about the matter by Entertainment Tonight last night:
Also, Guillermo del Toro, the winner of the award last Sunday, showed his support for Natalie’s message, in an email sent to IndieWire:
“I think it was great!” he wrote. “She should say exactly what she feels. There is phenomenal work being done by female directors.” He singled out several awards season contenders from women directors, adding that “’Mudbound,’ ‘Lady Bird’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ are all terrific.”
Maybe we can see a female director nominated at the Oscars in the coming weeks? We’ll see…
As announced, Natalie attended the Golden Globes ceremony today. She toured the red carpet next to America Ferrera and then presented the award for best direction with Ron Howard. The ceremony had its high points in the triumph of “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”, “Ladybird”, the speech of Oprah Winfrey … and Natalie’s remark about the absence of female directors in the category. Here, a few stunning photos:
According to InStyle, Natalie will be one of the presenters at the 2018 Golden Globes ceremony, which will be held next Sunday. As we all remember, Natalie was nominated for best actress in drama for “Jackie” last year:

Natalie attended the American Cinemateque Awards Gala yesterday, in which Amy Adams was honored for her entire career. Tom Hanks, Jake Gyllenhaal, Denis Villeneuve, Michael Shannon, Chris Messina and Kristen Stewart were other guests of the tribute.
Natalie never has worked with Adams, but is still waiting for “the perfect buddy comedy” to come along for them, she said in her speech on the stage. She also said that she “traveled with Amy on the campaign trail” meaning the awards season track. “During these interviews that get repetitive, Amy said something that it was difficult to be an actress because you have to have a thick skin because of all things people say about you, but you have to have a thin skin and be vulnerable when you’re working. She maintains that incredible vulnerability when I see her”.

This festival, organized by the well known cinema website, will include among its events an in-depth conversation with Natalie about her career and her involvement in humanitarian causes.
