Patty Jenkins Slims Oscars for Lack of Female Director Nominations – Variety

Patty Jenkins says she’s disappointed no women were nominated for best director this year.

“I refuse, I refuse,” the “Wonder Woman” director told me Saturday at the Charles Finch and Chanel pre-Oscar dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel’s Polo Lounge. “I say even with all their efforts to have diversity. The numbers are pretty unbalanced as to who votes for these things. I just stopped paying attention to it. There is still a long way to go. It will take more time to actually see more diverse rewards. I really appreciate their efforts, but we still have a long way to go.”

2023 director nominees Martin McDonagh (“The Banshees of Inisherin”), Daniel Kwan and Daniel Schienert (“All At Once”), Steven Spielberg (“The Fabelmans”) Todd Field (“Tar”) and Ruben Östlund ( “Tar”). Triangle of grief.”)

Chloé Zhao, who won the best director trophy for directing Nomad Land, also called on the Academy and voters to support gender diversity among nominees.

“There is a huge gap in our industry for female directors,” Zhao said Diversity in an interview published on March 10.

The Eternals director said Hollywood needs to do a better job of increasing the visibility of women nominated for awards and funding more female-led projects. “We don’t do it for the awards, but it helps with career longevity,” he said.

The 95th Oscar ceremony will be held on Sunday. The ceremony will be broadcast live on ABC from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Jimmy Kimmel returns as host.
