In the history of the Academy Awards, only five female directors have managed to get a nod in the Directing category.
Ronan noted that the Best Picture nom is a huge honor, but it also makes Gerwig's exclusion from the Best Director category all the more bewildering.
Women were once again shut out of the Best Director category during the nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards - and Issa Rae, who presented the list of nominees on Monday morning, appeared to make her feelings known about the snub. And perhaps the most notable missing name on that list is Greta Gerwig, whose Little Women adaptation was an unmitigated success at the box office, and which earned six Oscar nominations in other categories.
Gerwig was the only woman nominated in the best adapted screenplay category. Pugh told Deadline that The Gerwig Snub (our capitalization, not hers) was "a big blow", and she made clear her exasperation about the industry's pattern of overlooking female directors. "She made a film about women working and their relationship with money and their relationship with working in a man's world".
