Issa Rae summed up our feelings exactly when she spoke out about Greta Gerwig and other female directors’ Oscars snub this morning.
The 35-year-old Insecure creator and star presented the list of 2020 Oscar nominations for the Best Director category live from the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles and didn’t mince words once she realized none of the nominees are women.
“Congratulations to those men,” Rae quipped.
Which men exactly were nominated? Bong Joon-ho (Parasite), Sam Mendes (1917), Martin Scorsese (The Irishman), Quentin Tarantino (Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood) and Todd Phillips for (Joker) are all in the running.
