Other than the categories that are still, archaically, exclusively for women, like Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, the nominations gear towards the pale, male, and stale.
In a video snippet posted on the official "The Daily Show" Twitter, it opens up with the clip of Issa Rae announcing the nominees for Best Director and ending off with her saying "congratulations to those men". The directors that are being recognized include Martin Scorsese (The Irishman), Todd Phillips (Joker), Sam Mendes (1917), Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon A Time In Hollywood) and Bong Joon Ho (Parasite).
In fact, after more than 90 years, only ONE woman has won Best Director at the Oscars: Kathryn Bigelow, who took home the honor for directing The Hurt Locker in 2009. Some potential nominees included Greta Gerwig for Little Women and Lorene Scafaria for Hustlers. Gerwig is reportedly under consideration to direct the film as well. In 2018, Time's Up's presence at the Golden Globes - where A-list actors wore black in support of victims of sexual harassment - put pressure on the film industry to question its sexism in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, with the Time's Up campaign getting a moment of attention at the 2018 Oscars too.
As for Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh, the actresses were, naturally, disappointed to learn that their colleague and dear friend had not been nominated for her hard work as director on Little Women. Previously, Greta Gerwig received an Academy Award nomination for her film Lady Bird.

Given the response to the nomination announcement, it feels like what constitutes "Oscar material" should be up for debate more broadly.
Gerwig and Baumbach are working together on their next big project: cowriting a Barbie movie for Warner Bros., with Margot Robbie to play the famous doll.
Gerwig was the only woman nominated in the best adapted screenplay category.
"We are profoundly overwhelmed and honoured to have received all these nominations from the Academy, and to have made history by being only the third movie ever to be nominated for Best Picture that's written, directed and produced exclusively by women", producer Amy Pascal said in a statement Monday morning. "This film is a testament to the brilliance of Greta Gerwig".
