The Best Reactions to Monday’s Oscar Nominations

Laura Dern in Little Women

The actress announced this year's nominees alongside John Cho, and after the Best Director category was revealed, she shadily said to the camera, "Congratulations to those men".

The announcement of five men and zero women in the Best Director category during the 2020 Oscar nominations drew some serious shade from the broadcast's host.

The list of best directors only has male director, this decision by the Academy Awards did not go down well with the actress. So while Little Women has a whopping six Oscar nominations, there's still something that doesn't feel quite right.

What do the Little Women stars think of the Oscar nominations? They represent 10% of our directors in the industry, and when you have a good year like the one we had this year with such a good job, it's incredibly frustrating.

Thankfully, Gerwig was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Broncos fire offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello
The Denver Broncos are in the market for a new offensive coordinator, and may already be locking in on a pretty big name. Denver (7-9) went 4-1 with Lock as the starter to close the season during Fangio's first campaign as coach.

Unlike the remarkable debut of Jordan Peele Get Out, his second feature film Us did not break through with the Academy. The only female director who won the Best Director award in the Oscar's history was Kathryn Bigelow in the year 2009 for the film called The Hurt Locker. But Ronan is hoping Gerwig's next movie will fare better. "Congratulations to those men", she said with no trace of a smile. It's the same thing that happened previous year when the academy overlooked a number of women's films - including Heller's "Can you ever forgive me?", Debra Granik's "Leave No Trace", Tamara Jenkins "Private Life".

While Gerwig was a strong contender, she is not the only woman who was snubbed by the Academy Awards. "It's simply utterly underlining how essential this movie is, and the way the themes are nonetheless obvious now".

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.

Also overlooked are Marielle Heller for A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood, Lorene Scafaria for Hustlers, Lulu Wang for The Farewell, and Olivia Wilde for Booksmart. "This just kind of makes her more determined to do brilliant work and to keep pushing great work out there", she told Deadline.
