They all won the Golden Globe and Oscar that they were up for.

The 71-year-old legendary director spoke with ET’s Lauren Zima at the National Board of Review Awards on Tuesday night about this unique period in the entertainment industry, calling it “powerful, a watershed for women, a watershed for men, who will learn to listen or those who have been listening.”

We have some amazing women that have come forward, you know Mudbound and Lady Bird. This is a pretty incredible year, and I think you'll be seeing some nominations. I’m predicting at the Oscars this year for a woman director, if not several.”

  Celebrities who didn't wear black to the Golden Globes On the 2018 Golden Globes red carpet, actresses and actors chose to wear black in a silent protest. However, a few attendees - Blanca Blanco, Zenobia Shroff - missed the memo.Just a heads up — you might notice something ~unusual~ about this year's Golden Globes red carpet.

What could you say? It made me laugh, and it made me smile,” she said. “Look, it’s been a little glaring that women directors don’t get nominated so often and it is odd. Particularly when their films are being celebrated in every other way, so I thought it was interesting to highlight it. And what a difficult category to present without saying something about it, so she did it so perfectly.”

As for a potential first female president in Oprah Winfrey, Spielberg noted, “It sure sounded like 2020 to me.”

But as to whether he’d support his longtime star Tom Hanks as a vice presidential running mate for Winfrey, Spielberg replied, “If I’m gonna commit anything for Tom Hanks to be in in the future, it’s going to be another five of my movies.”
