    These directors are nominated based on the merit of their work not based on their sex. Her remark is offensive to the nominees. Women constitute 50% of human population yet 80% of film students are men. No one is forbidding women to study film.

    I laughed so hard. Specially because of Ron Howard’s reaction.

    Boom! With that single line she owned the night. Greta Gerwig and Rees Dee should have been nominated.

  • Tania Alvarez-Hildebrand

    She can suck it. So now, even if non-deserved, we should have at least one nominee of color, at least one woman, at least one gay, at least one transgender, at least one Martian and maybe some*thing* to represent the animal kingdom at every boring awards show!

  • Maria M.

    Really? Instead of Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg? Or instead of Nolan and del Toro? I liked Mudbound and Lady Bird very much but Greta Gerwig and Rees Dee are not in the same league. Kathryn Bigelow is and even she wasn’t nominated because there are only 5 slots.

  • Lou DiFigliano

    Bingo! Plus, it’s not like the directors nominated themselves. I support the women in Hollywood for calling out directors and producer’s for being dirtbags. But, this was totally unnecessary and her targets didn’t deserve to be slighted.
