#OscarsSoMale: Academy Awards Shut Out Women for Best Director

Featured in Variety by Clayton Davis on Jan. 24, 2023

The Oscars failed to nominate any women for directing this year, following two consecutive years of women winning the category.

The Academy Award nominations, announced on Tuesday, did not include women filmmakers such as Sarah Polley (“Women Talking”), Gina Prince-Bythewood (“The Woman King”), Maria Schrader (“She Said”) and Charlotte Wells (“Aftersun”) in the best director lineup. Women have won the category the past two years in a row, with Chloé Zhao taking home the 2021 prize for “Nomadland” and Jane Campion scoring last year for “Power of the Dog.”
