“Folks, Time’s Up!” Babs has a message for the Foreign Press
34 years ago, a verklempt Barbra Streisand accepted a Best Director Golden Globe Award for her work on “Yentl.” “This award is very meaningful to me. I’m very proud because it also represents, I hope, for so many talented women,” she told the audience. The crowd ruptured in applause.
Last night, Streisand, yet again, took to the Golden Globe stage, this time to present the award for Best Drama. But first, she made sure to mention that since 1984, no other woman has received Best Director. “Folks, time’s up!” she said.
"Folks, time's up!" The last time a woman won "Best Director" at the Golden Globes, it was Barbra Streisand for Yentl in 1984.
