    In a world where Halle Berry is the lone diverse best actress winner — they have much worse things to be embarrassed by.

    I agree on both the order of the list and the sad fact that there are only 5 nominees (and one winner) among them.

    All 5 were extremely deserving so the fact that Gerwig is last has no bearing on the quality of her work on LADYBIRD for me.

    And just as a random side note, this past year should’ve warranted two slots for a female director in my book: Lulu Wang and Celine Sciamma.

    One female Best Director winner VS one non-white Best Actress winner. I’d say both stats are equally embarassing

    The only difference being that Bigelow actually did deserve it for her great work

    It’s quite funny how the Hurt Locker is one of the “most masculine” movies that won Best Picture despite being directed by a woman (Evangeline Lilly is the only woman in the movie and she has like 2 lines. Only Lawrence of Arabia did worse with no female speaking lines)

    Would Bigelow have won if the movie was female-led ? The eventual underperformance of Zero Dark Thirty (which was just as acclaimed and more conmercially successful) tells me not

    1. Campion
    2. Wertmuller
    3. Bigelow
    4. Coppola

    5. Gerwig

    #1 – Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation)
    #2 – Jane Campion (The Piano)
    #3 – Lina Wertmüller (Seven Beauties)
    #4 – Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker)
    #5 – Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird)

    Disclaimer: I love Lady Bird but I thought it was more of a Writing rather than a Directing achievement.
