'Little Women' Cast Reacts To Greta Gerwig's Best Director Snub

The Greek Connections at this Year's Oscar Nominations

With the Golden Globes in the rear view, we're know deep into Awards Season.

The nominees for best director are Sir Sam for 1917, Martin Scorsese for The Irishman, Todd Phillips for Joker, Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon A Time.

Marriage Story, also from Netflix, received nominations for best original screenplay for Noah Baumbach and in the acting categories: Scarlett Johansson for best actress, Adam Driver for best actor, and Laura Dern for best supporting actress.

While the all-male domination of the category might suggest to some that female directors did not have as many creative opportunities, women helmed several highly-acclaimed films over the a year ago, between Lulu Wang's The Farewell, Marielle Heller's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Lorene Scafaria's Hustlers and Greta Gerwig's Little Women.

Other than the categories that are still, archaically, exclusively for women, like Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, the nominations gear towards the pale, male, and stale. Here's a look at the women who've been nominated for the award - and the one woman who took it home. "Congratulations to those men", said Issa Rae, who presented the nominees alongside John Cho.

Fans could not help but go gaga over Scarlett and Taskmaster. "I'm on the run". "We are still both trained killers". MCU alum William Hurt reprises his role as Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross.

And, as ever, Twitter is not. In the ceremony's 90 years of existence, the Academy has only nominated five female directors and awarded one: Kathryn Bigelow, who won in 2009 for The Hurt Locker. In the meantime, we'll keep calling them out.

The most high-profile omission is Greta Gerwig, director of Little Women, which has been nominated in six other categories.

I'm really happy that the Academy recognized [Gerwig] for Adapted Screenplay and Picture, and I feel like if you've been nominated for Best Picture, you have essentially been nominated for Best Director. She also became the first woman to get a nod for her debut film, Lady Bird.

As for Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh, the actresses were, naturally, disappointed to learn that their colleague and dear friend had not been nominated for her hard work as director on Little Women. And the category of best documentary feature was dominated by films directed by women. Finally, a Best Costume Design nomination for Jacqueline Durran and Best Original Score for the film's composer Alexandre Desplat rounded out the picture's Oscar award contenders.

Saiorse Ronan received a best actress nom and Greta Gerwig was snubbed for best director at the Oscars.
