You Wouldn't Know It From The Oscars, But Women Directed Films Last Year Too
Huffington Post - about 1 year
In the Oscars' 88-year history, only four women have been nominated for Best Director, and this year's ballot prompts another damning Hollywood statistic: Of all the non-documentary narratives up for an Academy Award, only one -- Deniz Gamze Ergüven's "Mustang" -- was directed by a woman. What gives? Well, a lot of things: As of 2012, the Oscar voting pool was 77 percent male. And in 2013 and 2014, women made a mere 1.9 percent of the 100 highest-grossing movies. In other words, it's a vicious cycle for female auteurs. But it's not one that's impossible to remedy. Almost half of the movies nominated for the Oscars' two screenplay prizes (adapted and original) were written or co-written by women, which is fantastic. And ladies did direct movies in 2015, no matter what awards season might imply. We have a list of 11 that are worth a watch, and here's to hoping the 2017 Oscars will be a far more hospitable place for people of all genders, races and sexualities. "The Diary of a Tee ...
