The Academy was quick to point out that a record 63 women were nominated this year. Indeed, female directors scored elsewhere on the ballot — four out of five nominated films in the feature documentary and documentary short categories, for example, were directed or co-directed by women.

At its heart, “1917” is a story about survival. … [Read more...] about Will Oscar Voters Choose a Dark Movie for Best Picture or Something More Upbeat?
