'Congratulations to those men': Issa Rae's quip sums up Oscar frustration

'Congratulations to those men': Issa Rae's quip sums up Oscar frustration 'Congratulations to those men': Issa Rae's quip sums up Oscar frustration

Here's a list of those who also have achieved dual acting nominations for films that came out in the same year, with an asterisk noting a win.

Issa Rae and John Cho announced the nominees for the 2020 Academy Awards.

"Congratulations to those men", Rae said.

Rae's remark about the nominees resembles a comment from Natalie Portman in 2018. At the 2018 Golden Globes, Portman announced the Best Director category.

Bong Joon-ho, who directed Parasite, is the only person of color to be nominated for Best Director in this year's major film awards ceremonies.

For starters, Greta Gerwig could have been nominated for Little Women. Three women, however, scored nominations in the best first-time feature film director category. Saoirse Ronan, who has been nominated in the Best Actress category for "Little Women", told Deadline that it is sad to see that Gerwig has not been nominated for such an awesome movie.

I'm really happy that the Academy recognized [Gerwig] for Adapted Screenplay and Picture, and I feel like if you've been nominated for Best Picture, you have essentially been nominated for Best Director.

Even among the nine movies nominated for best picture - equaling the most titles since the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences expanded from five to as many as 10 - there is a certain been-there quality to go along with a few breakthroughs. The two women found it unjust that Gerwig did not receive the Best Director nomination. Let's hope next year's nominee list is more with the times.

"I think everybody is angry and quite rightly so". And it's just highlighting the point.

The exclusion of Greta Gerwig's name has created a stir among people and a lot of celebrities are coming out in support of the filmmaker after she got snubbed in the Directing category of the upcoming 92nd Academy Awards. Additionally, Lulu Wang was not nominated for her direction of The Farewell, despite receiving critical acclaim throughout the 2020 awards season. Tom Hanks received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his work in the movie, but Heller did not receive the Best Director nomination. Alma Har'el's work on Honey Boy and Lorene Scafaria's work on Hustlers were also ignored.
