by Sabrina Walls

Women who take on any role in the film industry know the stakes when giving a performance that could impact their audience, themselves, and future generations. Women continue to fight for their right to remain on screen, receive the pay they deserve, and honor the women before them. Films are a form of expression, women take the screen by leading, supporting, and crafting the stories that we tell today. There is the The Woman King (directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood) which tells the history of a forgotten African nation run by women, which Viola Davis scored a Best Actress nomination for. Carey Mulligan is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for She Said which is about a journalist’s perspective on the sexual assault cases of Harvey Weinstein.Women Talking also grabbed noms for Hildur Guðnadóttir’s for Best Score and Sarah Polley got Best Screenplay. These are just some of the few women who strive to make their voices heard. Here are the women that received nominations for next year’s Golden Globes.
