'Little Women' Cast Reacts To Greta Gerwig's Best Director Snub

'Little Women' Cast Reacts To Greta Gerwig's Best Director Snub”

For Best Director, Martin Scorsese, Todd Phillips, Sam Mendes, Quentin Tarantino, and Bong Joon-ho received nominations.

Ever Academy Award nomination list has its set of snubs, and Little Women director Greta Gerwig was one. Additionally, Lulu Wang was not nominated for her direction of The Farewell, despite receiving critical acclaim throughout the 2020 awards season. Also snubbed? Lorene Scafaria for Hustlers, Melina Matsoukas for Queen & Slim and Marielle Heller for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

Ronan is in the mix for a Best Actress nomination for her performance in Little Women with the Oscars set to take place in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 9. Plenty of other ceremonies and nominations have also been occurring, but the top prize in the film world is the Academy Awards.

To many, the statement recalled the one made by Natalie Portman on the Oscars stage two years ago, when she introduced the category saying, "And here are the all-male nominees".

After nearly two decades without a female directing nominee, the Academy nominated Campion for her work on The Piano.

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

Ten years later, Sofia Coppola was nominated for Lost in Translation in 2003. All three directors garnered critical praise for their respective films, but apparently not enough to earn nominations.

Six years later, in 2010, Kathryn Bigelow won Best Director for The Hurt Locker.

Of course, this isn't the first time the 35-year-old has unashamedly rallied for Black folks at award shows. When Barbra Streisand announced Bigelow's win, she aptly said, "Well, the time as come". Saoirse Ronan is referencing Greta Gerwig's movies Little Women and Lady Bird, both of which she starred in.

Among others, Greta Gerwig was widely thought to be a major contender in the Best Director category for Little Women.

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".
