Pakistans top actress Mehwish Hayat slams Oscar nominations

The contenders for one of Hollywood's most coveted awards include Bong Joon-ho for Parasite, Sam Mendes for 1917, Martin Scorsese for The Irishman, Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood and Todd Phillips for Joker. Though director Greta Gerwig scored a nod for Best Adapted Screenplay, she was shut out of the Best Director category. 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. The actress announced this year's nominees alongside John Cho, and after the Best Director category was revealed, she shadily said to the camera, "Congratulations to those men".

Rae's remark elicited laughs among those in the theater where the nominations were announced.

The Academy Awards has a long and rich tradition of not recognizing female directors.

In total, 19 of the 20 acting nominees across both the leading and supporting categories for men and women were white, with only Erivo bucking the trend.

At the 49th Academy Awards, the Italian screenwriter and director made history by being the first female to be nominated in almost half a century.

Gerwig became only the fifth woman nominated for best director at the 2018 Oscars.

When San Francisco's defense is playing at its best, most National Football League offenses have found it hard to move the ball. Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan likes to ride the hot hand in the backfield which makes it hard for opponents to prepare.

Seventeen years later, in 1993, Jane Campion was nominated for The Piano.

Johansson is hardly the first actor to be recognized in dual acting categories in a single year, though the double nomination in that field hasn't occurred since Cate Blanchett was recognized for the 2007 films "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" and "I'm Not There". She did not take home the prize for Best Director, but did win for Best Screenplay.

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

Little Women star Florence Pugh reacted to her first Oscar nomination in the most hilarious way.

Movie lovers expected films like "Once Upon A Time.In Hollywood" and actresses like Scarlett Johansson to score Oscar nominations, but the "Beyhive" may not be too pleased that Beyoncé did not make the cut. Yesterday, she released a statement expressing her gratitude to the Academy for Little Women's six nominations, saying she is "brimming with happiness" that the Academy "recognized the collective effort" of the film's cast and crew.
