Issa Rae Calls Out Oscars For Snubbing Women In Best Director Category

You could compile a lengthy list of them, but the most glaring one is that no women are nominated in the Best Director category.

The stars of the movie were quick to react to the snub and noted that Gerwig's exclusion in the category is a "big blow" for them. While she was indeed nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, Gerwig is didn't make the list for Best Director. So while Little Women has a whopping six Oscar nominations, there's still something that doesn't feel quite right.

"Congratulations to those men", Rae quipped after the five male nominees were named during this morning's livestream.

And, as ever, Twitter is not. In the ceremony's 90 years of existence, the Academy has only nominated five female directors and awarded one: Kathryn Bigelow, who won in 2009 for The Hurt Locker.

Maybe 2021 will be the year that the Academy finally joins us in the real world, where white men are not the only artists worthy of acclaim.

Eight years later, in 2017, Greta Gerwig was nominated for Lady Bird. "I hope when she makes her next ideal movie, she gets recognized for everything because I think she is one of the most important filmmakers of our time", Ronan said. The two women found it unjust that Gerwig did not receive the Best Director nomination.

Executive Producer John Wells thanked the cast and crew in a statement about the news. "It's been a pleasure". Macy, will air someday in the summertime, whilst the display's Season 10 finale is ready for January 26.

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.

I think everybody's angry and quite rightly so. "I do not know what the answer is, other than we are talking about it", Pugh said.

The actress received a lead actress nod for her heartbreaking portrayal of a woman whose marriage falls apart in Noah Baumbach's drama "Marriage Story" and a supporting actress nomination as a German mother secretly working against Hitler's Nazi regime during WWII in Taika Waititi's quirky comedy "Jojo Rabbit".

While in the supporting categories, Sir Anthony Hopkins is recognised for his work on The Two Popes alongside Tom Hanks for A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood, Al Pacino and his The Irishman co-star Joe Pesci and Brad Pitt for Once Upon A Time...

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