“I wanted to recognize the women who were not recognized for their incredible work this year, in my subtle way,” she said on the red carpet while pointing to the names on her Dior cape.

The names listed included Greta Gerwig, who directed Little Women and Melina Matsoukas, the woman behind Queen & Slim.

Naturally, people are calling the bold look a “power move.”

Portman is presenting at Sunday evening’s Academy Awards where people hope she’ll have another impactful statement to make.
