View Issa Rae Dish Shade at Best directors Snubs from Oscars

View Issa Rae Dish Shade at Best directors Snubs from Oscars

Gerwig recently spoke out about her similar snub in the Golden Globe nominations.

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

Many eyes had been on the category, with particular attention being paid to whether "Little Women" director Greta Gerwig or any other of this year's notable female directors could score a nomination in the category historically dominated by men.

For an award ceremony that seems to pride itself on relevancy, this year's nominations are frankly boring.

Directing: Martin Scorsese, "The Irishman", Todd Phillips, "Joker", Sam Mendes, "1917", Quentin Tarantino, "Once upon a Time.in Hollywood", and Bong Joon Ho, "Parasite".

Gerwig was the only woman nominated in the best adapted screenplay category.


The Academy Awards air on February 9-tune in to see who takes home the trophies!

Notably, the Director's Guild of America Awards' Best Feature Film category, whose nominations were announced last week, also included all-male programming.

Seventeen years later, in 1993, Jane Campion was nominated for The Piano. 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.

Ten years later, Sofia Coppola was nominated for Lost in Translation in 2003.

Only one woman has won in Oscars history - Kathryn Bigerlow for The Hurt Locker in 2010. But in a possible sign of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' increasingly global outlook, Parasite became just the sixth non-English language movie to be nominated for both best foreign-language film and best picture. She was also nominated for 3 NAACP image awards for Entertainer of the Year, Outstanding Actress In A Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing In A Comedy Series.

Whilst Gerwig was once no longer nominated within the Best possible Director class, the "Little Ladies" filmmaker picked up a Best possible Tailored Screenplay nod, simply one in all six nominations for her retelling of the liked Lousia Would possibly Alcott novel of the similar identify. "This film testifies to the brilliance of Greta Gerwig".
