To The Academy: Where the Ladies At?

The ballots have closed on this year’s Academy Awards, but one thing for sure is that the winner of Best Director is definitely going to be a man. Again.

In order to raise awareness about the gender imbalance in Hollywood, peeps over at Indiewire put out this video to remind everyone that some pretty awesome lady-produced movies out that deserve another look. This is the second year they have made a vid to raise awareness and promote a more gender equal industry. Side note—only four women have been nominated for Best Director in 85 years? That’s crazy! Academy, get your shit together!
