Once again, it was #DirectorsSoMale at the Academy Award nominations Monday.
"Congratulations to those men," said presenter and actor Issa Rae pointedly after the announcement of nominees for best director. Denied were filmmakers like Greta Gerwig, director of Little Women, which was nominated for best picture and other awards. Lulu Wang's The Farewell, highly praised by critics, received no nominations.
主持人兼演员伊萨·雷（Issa Rae）在宣布最佳导演提名后指出：“恭喜这些人。”像《小女人》（Little Women）导演格雷塔·格维格（Greta Gerwig）这样的电影制片人被拒绝了，该片获得了最佳影片和其他奖项的提名。王璐璐的《告别》获得了评论家的高度评价，没有获得提名。
Continuing another troubling trend was #OscarsSoWhite: Among acting nominations, Cynthia Erivo of Harriet was the only person of color out of 20 actors honored. Awkwafina who won a Golden Globe award for her lead performance in The Farewell was denied a chance at an Oscar.
Other well-known stars like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Robert De Niro were also overlooked.
Jennifer Lopez saw major success in 2019, almost 30 years into her acting career. Her much-praised performance as a New York City stripper in Hustlers was reported to be her best chance for an Oscar. She was nominated for a Golden Globe and other awards this year for her work in the movie. But the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences did not recognize her with a nomination.
The 2019's film version of the famous American book Little Women was nominated for best picture. However, its female director Greta Gerwig was ignored in the nominations. Critics and movie fans had considered Gerwig an extremely strong candidate for a second directing nomination. She was nominated in 2018 for her direction of Lady Bird but lost to Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water.
2019年美国著名电影《小女人》（Little Women）的电影版本获得最佳影片提名。但是，其女导演Greta Gerwig在提名中被忽略。评论家和电影迷们认为格瑞格（Gerwig）是第二次导演提名的极有力候选人。她在2018年因伯德夫人的执导而获得提名，但因《水的形状》而输给了吉列尔莫·德尔·托罗（Guillermo del Toro）。
To date, only one woman has won a directing Oscar: Kathryn Bigelow for the 2008 film, The Hurt Locker. Other noted female directors who were passed over this year: Wang for The Farewell, Lorene Scafaria for Hustlers, Melina Matsoukas for Queen & Slim, and Marielle Heller for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.
迄今为止，只有一位女性赢得了奥斯卡导演的提名：凯瑟琳·比格洛（Kathryn Bigelow）出演了2008年的电影《受伤的储物柜》。其他在今年过世的著名女导演包括：王（The Farewell），洛琳·斯卡法里亚（Lorene Scafaria），骗子（Hustlers），梅琳娜·马特苏卡斯（Melina Matsoukas），皇后和苗条（Queen＆Slim），玛丽莲·海勒（Marielle Heller）的《邻里美好的一天》。
... And Gerwig's husband
Gerwig is married Noah Baumbach, who directed Marriage Story. He also was denied a directing nomination although his movie, like hers, was nominated for best picture.
More women, less diversity
A record 62 women overall were nominated Monday, representing about a third of all nominees. However, the Academy put the most weight behind a few male-driven and man-made movies. It is the 87th time in Oscar history that all the directing nominees are men.
Overall, the 2020 Oscar hopefuls represent the least diverse field since the #OscarsSoWhite campaigns of 2015 and 2016.
However, Bong Joon Ho's, Parasite, made history for South Korea. It is the first Korean film to be nominated for best international film. It also became the 11th non-English movie nominated for best picture.
The 2020 Oscars will be awarded on February ninth.
