    I have both Gerwig and Rees in my top 10, prediction-wise, though still a bit outside the top 5. I’d keep an eye on Jolie too, though she’s likelier to strike in Adapted Screenplay.

    It’s sad that this is considered a great year for women directors when it’s still not even close to 50/50.

    Systemic sexism won’t leave overnight. Women helmed movies also have difficulty securing financing.

    Wasnt a fan of Sofia Coppolas work in the Beguiled nor of Patty Jenkins. That movie is so overrated and overhyped. However if I could vote than Dee Rees would be on my ballet. Margaret Betts did a good job too. My other favourite is currently hungarian filmdirector Ildikó Enyedi for her work in On Body and Soul (Hungarys entry for Foreign Film).

    I have Gerwig at 6th. I’m not sure who she would replace if she were to get in from my predictions. Most likely Spielberg if The Post flops.

    Who are your top 5 at the moment?

    I could see Spielberg. I could also see Guadagnino missing. I haven’t seen CMBYN yet, but I feel like it’s more of a screenplay/acting film than a director film. I could be completely wrong and would love for someone who has seen the film to enlighten me.

    I think Nolan, del Toro and McDonagh are pretty safe.

    ^ CMBYN is definitely a director’s film. It has precise framing and a particularly subtle use of a long take at a crucial moment in the narrative. The film is very “cinematic”, and while the direction may not be attention-grabbing enough for the win, it would be very odd for this type of film to get a Best Picture nomination without a Directing nod; it has to be both (like Moonlight) or neither (like Carol). Probably the former.

    I see, thank you!
