Saoirse Ronan, who has been nominated in the Best Actress category for "Little Women", told Deadline that it is sad to see that Gerwig has not been nominated for such an wonderful movie. As Issa Rae pointedly nailed it when introducing the category for Best Director: "Congratulations to those men".

She was also nominated for 3 NAACP image awards for Entertainer of the Year, Outstanding Actress In A Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing In A Comedy Series. "I hope when she makes her next flawless movie, she gets recognized for everything because I think she is one of the most important filmmakers of our time", Ronan said. Little Women additionally received a Best Picture nod, with Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh also nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role and Best Actress in a Supporting Role, respectively.

Saiorse Ronan received a best actress nom and Greta Gerwig was snubbed for best director at the Oscars.
"I think everybody is angry and quite rightly so". Lulu Wang could have been nominated for The Farewell, which would have made her the first woman of Asian descent to be nominated. The list is chosen by industry professionals who make up the "Academy voters", and - as has been reported in the past - those voters are predominantly white, which could account for why directors and actors of colour are often snubbed.
Greta Gerwig's Little Women picked up six nods, but Gerwig failed to land a directing nomination, even though her film was nominated for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay. At the 2018 Golden Globes, Portman announced the Best Director category.
