Wouldn't there need to be more female directors to fill the category? I feel like usually there wouldn't be enough directing jobs worth nominating.


You're close to getting the point.


I'd be all for the category, as long as they gave enough females good directing jobs.

Bingo, there you go! It's all about giving them more jobs. Like half of the Marvel films could've been directed by a computer, so why did they insist on hiring a bunch of bland dudes?

Captain Marvel had a female director and four of the comic book films this year have female directors.

like more female directors should exist but the vast majority of people complaining do nothing to actually watch female directed films. There’s still a lot that comes out every year and they aren’t hard to find. When it comes to awards, there’s plenty of options every year to nominate even with 80% of films being directed by males.

As they should as the previous 20+ almost all had male directors.

There were 125 movies released wide by studios in 2019, 19 were directed by women. (4 in 2018, 9 in 2017).

3 of the 19 will pass $100 mil (1 in 2018, 2 in 2017)

The 19 films grossed $1.7 billion.

I demand that the best costume category be also split in male and female. Of the last 100 nominees only 15 were male. What an outrage!!!

Stuff like Charlie's Angels flopping (which was good!) gets stupid executives to think women shouldn't be hired to direct more movies. Here's hoping all the blockbusters this year directed by women do well.

Stuff like Pitch Perfect gets studios thinking a Charlie’s Angel reboot could actually work.

The studio tent pole stuff is honestly the most minimal of the issues. Its more of a problem that low budget and mid size budget films directed by women about women is really tough to get financing and distribution. This isn’t just a big Hollywood studio issue; the production finance industry is a big issue as well.

It’s also really not a good sign for Americans that most of the prominent female directors became famous for acting.

I actually think Patty Jenkins and Bigelow are the only real well known female directors born in America who weren’t actresses.

this is regressive thinking. we should actually get rid of male/female acting awards, not push for more shit like it.

may as well add race categories while we're at it because all the female directors everyone mostly wants to talk about our white and that is going to piss off people for overlooking the contributions of black and asians and hispanic female directors.


Yeah that's the whole point I think.

I'm not against just more awards in general, but then, where does it stop.

Post Re: Best Female Director
The gender divide with the acting categories is there to maximize the number of acting awards and the Hollywood star machine by extension. They are the ones carrying the films and the public face of the industry so it makes sense to give them as much exposure as possible. Also because Hwood needs to ensure there are both male and female acting stars being developed/promoted to the masses as they can carry different types of films for different target audiences.

Director on the other hand is purely about achivement and a dick measuring contest within the industry. Beyond a select number of directors like Spielberg, Nolan, Shyamalan, the general public doesn't care about directors. It would be insulting to female directors to segregate them into their own category.

We can't flip out every time Greta Gerwig misses out, even when the movie is just OK and didn't deserve it in the first place. This way, Gerwig could be nominated every year, but also lose if the quality isn't high enough.

Olivia Wilde is the Best Female Director of 2019 in my opinion.


Well Gerwig didn't deserve it for Lady Bird but she did for Little Women.

There were so many worthy female directors in 2019. Gerwig, Jennifer Kent for The Nightingale, Olivia Wilde for Booksmart, Céline Sciamma for Portrait of a Lady on Fire. Eventually once women get more opportunity to direct hopefully we will see more nominated for Director. But I don't agree with splitting Director by gender. If it happens though it happens. I won't be outraged. It would at least allow for films like The Nightingale and Portrait of a Lady on Fire to get some attention.

I am totally fine with them expanding Best Director to 10 though.
