Post Best Female Director
I was initially opposed to this idea, even going so far as to favor the men and women competing against each other in the acting categories as well. I think it's time though. 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.

Honestly, I wouldn't be that opposed to it. What's the difference between splitting Director up like they do Acting? I mean, Best Director is almost always a best Male Director award anyway.

Directors are directors. There shouldn't be separate category by gender. That's just wrong.

Actors are actors. Yet we separate the acting categories.

Well the main reason they split up actor and actresses, is because they don't give enough good roles to actresses, so the actor would win almost every year. I guess by that logic there should be best female director.

The only reason I still support separating actors is to honor more actors.

They should add ensemble ASAP though

nothing like a couple of white male bros telling people that pandering to females/POCs/diverse demos is actually good and not in fact degrading and insulting.


Well I'd prefer if they just NOMINATED WOMEN. But they refuse to do so. Maybe if they just increase the demographics to 50% women in the academy...

I don't think the nominees will find it degrading, nor will the studios when their box office goes up because of it.

Little Women
Booksmart
The Farewell
Portrait of a Lady on Fire
Hustlers

All of these would be have more interest in them today then they would otherwise, and people could still be upset about High Life not being nominated.

I think the academy would go for this over dramatically changing who the voters are.

just increase the nomination list in the major categories to 10. Just like they did to The Best Picture category after TDK got fucked over.

this year aside (which is just one of the weakest best actress field maybe ever), the amount of good roles for actresses have been plenty over the last 10 years.

expand the field to ten, reveal runner-ups so there's extra merit rewards, and combine everything.


I guess there are several years in the last few decades where the Best Actress could have won over Best Actor. However Best Supporting Actor winners destroy the Best Supporting Actresses in my opinion.

In an ideal world there would be equal amounts of good roles for males and females so they would only need one Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor category, and one Best Director. But if they’re going to do it for the acting awards the same logic applies to the Directing. Frankly trying to win the Best Actress and Supporting Actress categories is responsible for half the good female roles so it’s possible that Best Female Director would lead to better opportunities as well

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.

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.


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.

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.
