A large number of people took to social media to express their outrage following the announcement of the Golden Globes nominations. Fans pointed out how despite their efforts not a single female director had been nominated for their exceptional work.

One of the many directors who fans stated deserved a nomination was Israeli-American director Alma Har'el. She directed the Shia LaBeouf written film Honey Boy that talked about the relationship between a boy and his father.

Despite the appreciation the film garnered, Har'el did not get nominated in the Golden Globes. People took to social media to express their displeasure at this adding how this had been a repeated tradition every year even after being called for being biased towards male directors. Nevertheless, Har'el took to Twitter to thanks fans speaking out in support of her but also reminded them that the priority was on making good quality films and not the awards.

The Golden Globes have been called out in the past numerous times for not including female directors in their nominations. Natalie Portman had herself once taken a dig while presenting an award at the Golden Globes. Just before announcing the nominations Portman had called out "all-male nominees".
