Issa Rae Epically Shades This Year’s Oscar Nominees

Snubbed! Lupita Nyong’o did not receive a best actress nomination for her work in “Us.”

Snubbed! Lupita Nyong’o did not receive a best actress nomination for her work in “Us.”

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

Noticeably absent from the list: women.

The 2020 Oscar nominations are officially out, and in an unfortunate yet unsurprising turn, no women were nominated for Best Director.

Several women were considered to be in contention for the academy award this year, including Greta Gerwig for Little Women (who picked up a nomination for best adapted screenplay), Lulu Wang for The Farewell, Lorene Scafaria for Hustlers, Marielle Heller for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and Alma Har'el for Honey Boy.

While announcing the nominees for this year's Oscar's with John Cho, Rae called out the fact that there were no women on the ticket. Meanwhile, there were also no female directors nominated at the Oscars in 2019, and although Greta was up for Lady Bird in 2018, she lost to Guillermo del Toro, who directed The Shape of Water.

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

Seventeen years later, in 1993, Jane Campion was nominated for The Piano.

The weakest link in the ODI team is Kedar Jadhav , who managed to keep his 50 places in the middle of the pressure to replace him. Meanwhile, it was also reported that Pandya had cleared the fitness Test but he is not 100% fit according to the physio.

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

"Little Women" received six nominations overall, including for best picture.

At the 2017 Emmys, Issa told a reporter that she was only looking for Black folks to take home trophies at the ceremony.

Gerwig has thus far been gloriously good-natured about the awards oversights, even in a season where she has often appeared publicly to support her colleague and partner, Noah Baumbach, as he promotes the movie he directed this year, Marriage Story. That's an honour that can now be claimed by Rocketman (original song), Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (makeup and hairstyling), The Lighthouse (cinematography), Ad Astra (sound mixing) and, for Best Visual Effects, The Lion King, Avengers: Endgame, and Star Wars, which was also nominated for its score. The then 33-year-old made her solo directorial debut with the coming-of-age film, starring Saoirse Ronan, and she was nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay.

In the weeks before the release of Greta Gerwig's luminous and superbly crafted Little Women, film wonks on social media wondered aloud about its chances: Did the world really need another adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's 1869 novel?

While Gerwig was a strong contender, she is not the only woman who was snubbed by the Academy Awards.

For costume design the nominated films are Jojo Rabbit, Once Upon A Time.
