2023 Oscar nominations announced

#OscarsSoMale trends as No Women have been included for best director at this year’s Oscars nominations announcement!

The Academy Award nominations were announced on Tuesday and to a surprise did not include any women filmmakers such as Sarah Polley (“Women Talking”), Gina Prince-Bythewood (“The Woman King”), Maria Schrader (“She Said”) and Charlotte Wells (“Aftersun”) in the best director lineup.

Women filmmakers have won the category the past two years in a row, with Chloé Zhao taking home the 2021 prize for “Nomadland” and Jane Campion bagging the trophy last year for “Power of the Dog.”

The director category is voted by the 573 active members of the Directors Branch.

The five cinematic helmers nominated for this by the Academy include Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”), Todd Field (“Tár”), Martin McDonagh (“The Banshees of Inisherin”), Ruben Östlund (“Triangle of Sadness”) and Steven Spielberg (“The Fabelmans”).

The 95th Oscars ceremony will be held on March 12 and will air live on ABC from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Following the announcement of nominations, the organization Women In Film, Los Angeles condemned the Academy for not including women filmmakers.

“Once again, Academy voters have shown that they don’t value women’s voices, shutting us out of the Best Director nominations,” they said in a statement.

“An Academy Award is more than a gold statue, it’s a career accelerator that can lead to continued work and increased compensation. That’s why WIF will continue to advocate for the work of talented women directors like Sarah Polley’s ‘Women Talking,’ Gina Prince-Bythewood’s ‘The Woman King,’ Maria Schrader’s ‘She Said,’ Chinonye Chukwu’s ‘Till,’ and Charlotte Wells’ ‘Aftersun,’ to be included,” the statement added.

Check out the nominations for the 95th instalment of the prestigious awards.
