Little Women Cast Responds To Greta Gerwig’s ‘Disappointing’ Oscar Snub For Directing

Scarlett Johansson double nomination

Thankfully, Little Women and Harriet received well-deserved nominations in other categories this year, but that makes their Best Director snubs even more glaring.

Immediately after sharing that news, Rae deadpanned, "Congratulations to those men". The Hollywood actress Saoirse Ronan has some stiff competition to face in the Best Actress category. The nominees in the Best Director category this year went to Martin Scorcese for The Irishman, Todd Phillips for Joker, Sam Mendes for 1917, Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon a Time In Hollywood and Bong Joon-Ho for Parasite.

The 35-year-old Insecure creator and star presented the list of 2020 Oscar nominations for the Best Director category live from the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles and didn't mince words once she realized none of the nominees are women.

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. Let's hope next year's nominee list is more with the times.

To date, only one woman-Kathryn Bigelow for her 2009 movie The Hurt Locker-has ever won the prestigious award.

He argues "Boeing needs a CEO with an understanding of aviation markets, program management, and most of all, engineering". One of the features of the 737 Max was a stall-avoidance system that, on the surface, was designed with safety in mind.

Prior to the Academy Award nominations, Greta Gerwig was similarly snubbed at the Golden Globes. She filmmaker has quickly become a major name in the film world, but she's nonetheless been snubbed by the Film Academy in the Best Director category.

At the 49th Academy Awards, the Italian screenwriter and director made history by being the first female to be nominated in almost half a century.

Speaking to reporters, the President of ABC Television Entertainment in the US, Karey Burke, said: "Let me confirm it now". Lulu Wang could have been nominated for The Farewell, which would have made her the first woman of Asian descent to be nominated. Tom Hanks received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his work in the movie, but Heller did not receive the Best Director nomination. Campion did not win the Best Director award, but did win for Best Screenplay.

Writer Jenellicle Riley tweeted, "THE FAREWELL and HUSTLERS were two truly original, excellent and PROFITABLE films both written and directed by women and their total shut-out is discouraging".
