Issa Rae Calls Out Oscars For Snubbing Women In Best Director Category

Saoirse Ronan- A fourth Oscar nomination

Saoirse Ronan- A fourth Oscar nomination

Issa Rae summed up our feelings exactly when she spoke out about Greta Gerwig and other female directors' Oscars snub this morning. The director's category did not have a single female director getting a nod.

Ronan, who stars as Jo March, told Deadline that she was "scratching [her] head a bit" when she learned that Gerwig had not been nominated. So far, no girl has been nominated twice.

The Academy has not yet responded to the criticism from Issa and viewers on social media.

Little Women is winning big at the worldwide box office.

The adaptation of the iconic 1868 novel written by Louisa May Alcott scored Sony nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress (Saoirse Ronan), Best Supporting Actress (Florence Pugh) and Best Adapted Screenplay, an impressive total in any year. "And it's simply highlighting the goal. That's literally what Little Women is about, so [this] only underlines how important it is - because it's happening".

Julia Garner and Pixie Lott were among the first to congratulate Pugh on her nomination, and Lily Allen posted three trophy emojis in the comments section.

While Gerwig was a strong contender, she is not the only woman who was snubbed by the Academy Awards. To somewhat reluctantly use the phrase #NotAllMen, the Safdie Brothers and Adam Sandler, who together made one of the most groundbreaking and original films of the year with Uncut Gems, should have got more recognition.

Aguero's record is even more impressive given that he only moved to England at the age of 23 from La Liga side Atletico Madrid. Aguero now has 177 goals and is the most prolific non-Englishman in the history of the Premier League.

As Pugh recommended, this can be a acquainted observe of disappointment we've seen again and again. Only one woman has ever won, and it happened years ago when Kathryn Bigelow won for The Hurt Locker.

Irish eyes will once again be on Saoirse Ronan when the Oscar nominations are announced in the United States at lunchtime.

For Pugh, the all-male directing lineup reinforces the urgency of Gerwig's Little Women.

Gerwig was the only woman nominated in the best-suited screenplay category. Previously, Greta Gerwig received an Academy Award nomination for her film Lady Bird.

For many, the statement was reminiscent of that made by Natalie Portman on the Oscar scene two years ago, when she introduced the category by saying, "And here are the nominees exclusively male".
