    Carol Kane in Hester Street (1975) was directed by Joan Micklin Silver.

    It also means Abigail Breslin, you know, for the sake of thoroughness.

    You’re 100% right. Thanks!

    The first ever Oscar nominated performance directed by a woman happened way back in 1930 when Ruth Chatterton got a Best Actress nomination for a film called Sarah and Son directed by Dorothy Arzner.

    I’m SO glad you mentioned Chatterton! I saw her in Madame X but have yet to see Sarah and Son. Would love to actually.

    Well, time to add the following to the list:

    Greta Gerwig – Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh
    Marie Heller – Tom Hanks
    Kasi Lemmons – Cynthia Erivo

    This means that two records have been set:

    (1) Greta Gerwig has now directed 4 Oscar-nominated performances, tying the record for a woman director held by Barbra Streisand. That fact that all 4 of these nominations are women sets the record for a woman director directing female performances to a nomination.

    (2) Tom Hanks becomes the first male actor to ever earn two nominations from a female director, first for BIG and now for BEAUTIFUL.
