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

Immediately after sharing that news, Rae deadpanned, "Congratulations to those men".

However, she was really happy that the movie has been nominated in other major categories like Best Picture and Adapted Screenplay. For many, however, each paled next to signature works by the directors responsible for them - "Irishman", another mob drama, falling short of Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas", while "Once Upon a Time" is arguably the fourth or fifth best movie from Quentin Tarantino.

Had the women been nominated for the category, they would have joined the sole five female nominees in the Oscars' 92-year history. But to me, Greta, since she started, has made two ideal films, and I hope when she makes her next flawless movie, she gets recognized for everything, because I think she's one of the most important filmmakers of our time.

"Little Women" scored six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actress for Saoirse Ronan's performance as Jo March. Lina Wertmuller was nominated for "Seven Beauties" in 1976, Jane Campion for "The Piano" in 1993, Sofia Coppola for "Lost In Translation" in 2003, Kathryn Bigelow for "The Hurt Locker" in 2009 and Gerwig for "Lady Bird" in 2017.

Prior to the Academy Award nominations, Greta Gerwig was similarly snubbed at the Golden Globes.

Scarlett earned two acting nominations in the same year - one for Best Actress for Marriage Story and another for Best Supporting Actress for Jojo Rabbit.


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

"I think everybody is angry and quite rightly so".

Notably, the Director's Guild of America awards' best feature film category, the nominations for which were announced last week, also included an all-male lineup.

Speaking to reporters, the President of ABC Television Entertainment in the US, Karey Burke, said: "Let me confirm it now". Additionally, Lulu Wang was not nominated for her direction of The Farewell, despite receiving critical acclaim throughout the 2020 awards season.

Bigelow is the only female filmmaker to ever win an Oscar for directing a movie.

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".
