[ti:Women Directors Shut Out of Oscar Nominations] [by:www.51星和彩票.com] [00:00.00]更多听力请访问51VOA.COM [00:00.04]Once again, it was #DirectorsSoMale at the Academy Award nominations Monday. [00:09.36]"Congratulations to those men," said presenter and actor Issa Rae pointedly [00:16.72]after the announcement of nominees for best director. [00:21.72]Denied were filmmakers like Greta Gerwig, director of Little Women, [00:27.76]which was nominated for best picture and other awards. [00:32.68]Lulu Wang's The Farewell, highly praised by critics, received no nominations. [00:40.72]Continuing another troubling trend was #OscarsSoWhite: Among acting nominations, [00:50.64]Cynthia Erivo of Harriet was the only person of color out of 20 actors honored. [00:58.16]Awkwafina who won a Golden Globe award for her lead performance [01:04.24]in The Farewell was denied a chance at an Oscar. [01:08.72]Other well-known stars like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Robert De Niro were also overlooked. [01:18.44]Jennifer Lopez saw major success in 2019, almost 30 years into her acting career. [01:27.32]Her much-praised performance as a New York City stripper in Hustlers [01:33.28]was reported to be her best chance for an Oscar. [01:38.08]She was nominated for a Golden Globe and other awards this year for her work in the movie. [01:45.96]But the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences did not recognize her with a nomination. [01:55.88]The 2019's film version of the famous American book Little Women was nominated for best picture. [02:04.80]However, its female director Greta Gerwig was ignored in the nominations. [02:11.32]Critics and movie fans had considered Gerwig an extremely strong candidate [02:17.56]for a second directing nomination. [02:21.24]She was nominated in 2018 for her direction of Lady Bird [02:26.84]but lost to Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water. [02:31.72]To date, only one woman has won a directing Oscar: [02:36.96]Kathryn Bigelow for the 2008 film, The Hurt Locker. [02:42.40]Other noted female directors who were passed over this year: Wang for The Farewell, [02:49.68]Lorene Scafaria for Hustlers, Melina Matsoukas for Queen & Slim, [02:56.56]and Marielle Heller for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. [03:01.36]Gerwig is married Noah Baumbach, who directed Marriage Story. [03:07.68]He also was denied a directing nomination although his movie, like hers, was nominated for best picture. [03:17.12]A record 62 women overall were nominated Monday, representing about a third of all nominees. [03:27.36]However, the Academy put the most weight behind a few male-driven and man-made movies. [03:36.76]It is the 87th time in Oscar history that all the directing nominees are men. [03:45.00]Overall, the 2020 Oscar hopefuls represent the least diverse field [03:52.32]since the #OscarsSoWhite campaigns of 2015 and 2016. [04:00.76]However, Bong Joon Ho's, Parasite, made history for South Korea. [04:07.20]It is the first Korean film to be nominated for best international film. [04:14.16]It also became the 11th non-English movie nominated for best picture. [04:21.88]The 2020 Oscars will be awarded on February ninth. [04:28.64]I'm Caty Weaver. [04:30.04]更多听力请访问51VOA.COM
