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

Florence Pugh Says She Screamed for 5 Minutes After Seeing Her 'Vogue&apos Cover

After reading off the list, nominations presenter Issa Rae, absolutely dripping in sarcasm, quipped: "Congratulations to those men".

Also nominated in the best supporting actress category are Scarlett Johansson for Jojo Rabbit, Kathy Bates for Richard Jewell, Laura Dern for Marriage Story and Margot Robbie for Bombshell. The nominees in the Best Director category this year went to Martin Scorcese for The Irishman, Todd Phillips for Joker, Sam Mendes for 1917, Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon a Time In Hollywood and Bong Joon-Ho for Parasite.

Gerwig became only the fifth woman nominated for best director at the 2018 Oscars. 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. Little Women also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Original Music Score, Best Costume Design, Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actress. 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.

Saiorse Ronan received a best actress nom and Greta Gerwig was snubbed for best director at the Oscars. So while Little Women has a whopping six Oscar nominations, there's still something that doesn't feel quite right. The 25-year-old Saoirse Ronan made history at the Oscars 2020 by becoming the second youngest actress to be getting her fourth nomination at the prestigious Academy Awards. "I do not know what the answer is, other than we are talking about it", Pugh said. The same issue was buzzed-about when it came to the Golden Globes earlier this month, as not one female director was nominated at that show, either. Additionally, Lulu Wang was not nominated for her direction of The Farewell, despite receiving critical acclaim throughout the 2020 awards season.

Gerwig was the only woman nominated in the best adapted screenplay category. Also snubbed? Lorene Scafaria for Hustlers, Melina Matsoukas for Queen & Slim and Marielle Heller for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.
