    The problem was that neither Children of a Lesser God nor Awakenings were huge critical darlings compared to some of their respective competition; the latter in particular had some notable detractors. I can see why the directors branch might’ve found the transition of Children from stage to screen somewhat awkward, with William Hurt constantly speaking Marlee Matlin’s ASL out loud – a theatrical device less effective on film. Then again, films directed by men with similar-level reviews got directing noms so maybe sexism did had something to do with it.

    Actually the directors branch got it right in 1990. They put in The Grifters and Reversal of Fortune both of which are excellent films, better than Awakenings or Ghost which got in at Best Picture.

    Jane Campion with The Piano for me, I think my favourite films by all the other listed directors are not the ones that got the Best Director.

    I like Love and Anarchy more for Wertmuller, Point Break more for Bigelow, Marie Antoinette and (controversially) The Bling Ring more for Coppola, and Little Women more for Gerwig.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Wolfwalkers

    Best Animated Feature: Wolfwalkers
