DirectorsSoMale: Oscar noms slammed for lack of diversity

FILE - This Jan. 5, 2020 file photo shows director Greta Gerwig, left, and Noah Baumbach at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif. Both Gerwig and Baumback failed to receive Oscar nominations for best director for their film "Little Women" and "Marriage Story," respectively, but they did receive nominations for adapted screenplay for Gerwig and original screenplay for Baumbauch.

If Greta Gerwig makes a movie, go watch it. Long rising as an actor (2012’s “Frances Ha,” which she also co-wrote, 2016’s “20th Century Women,” etc.), she has become a force as a writer/director. Her 2017 debut, “Lady Bird,” was spectacular. With “Little Women,” she shows off new skills. She achieves the Victorian period, takes the often-duplicated story and moves a new, modern audience to laughter and tears. Enjoy the return to the Oscars, Greta.
