The 2020 Oscars Nominations Yet Again Shut Out Female Directors

The 2020 Oscars Nominations Yet Again Shut Out Female Directors The 2020 Oscars Nominations Yet Again Shut Out Female Directors

After Rae read out the nominations for best director, she quipped: "Congratulations to those men".

Gerwig only became the fifth woman to be nominated for Best Director at the 2018 Oscars.

Some of the year's biggest films, including "Hustlers", "Queen & Slim", "Little Women", and "The Farewell" were helmed by women in the director's chair, yet they were all excluded from the Best Director category.

No female-directed movies have been nominated within the Best possible Animated Function race both, and just one made it thru within the Best possible Global Function Movie class: "Honeyland", co-directed by means of Tamara Kotevska. Thankfully, Little Women and Harriet received well-deserved nominations in other categories this year, but that makes their Best Director snubs even more glaring. Take a look at the total checklist of nominations proper right here.

"The academy's unwillingness to nominate women directors is staggering", The Boston Globe's opinion columnist Renee Graham wrote. Industry website Deadline called this year's nominations "basically #OscarsSoWhite Part 2: #OscarsSoWhiterAndWithMoreMen", referring to a hashtag begun in 2015 in response to the lack of diverse nominees. It's the similar factor that took place remaining yr, when the Academy overpassed various heavy-hitting female-directed options - together with Heller's "Can You Ever Forgive Me?", Debra Granik's "Go away No Hint", Tamara Jenkins' "Non-public Existence", and Lynne Ramsay's "You Have been By no means In point of fact Right here" - that have been acclaimed at the circuit and earned nods in different places. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science did not include any female director for this year's Oscars.

Greta Gerwigwas overlooked for an Oscar nomination this year. When Barbra Streisand announced Bigelow's win, she aptly said, "Well, the time as come". "This film testifies to the brilliance of Greta Gerwig".

Pugh also argued that Gerwig, and women in general, getting left out of Best Director field only reinforces the theme of the film.

Todd Phillips' much-debated supervillain origin story and R-rated box-office smash "Joker" topped all films with 11 Academy Awards nominations on Monday, including best picture.

Four out of the five directors nominated are white men, save for Joon-ho (whose nomination for directing a foreign language film is certainly a massive accomplishment).
