Vindication of the Female Voice: The Academy and Sexism
In 2010 Kathryn Bigelow was the first female director to win an Oscar for her war film Hurt Locker. Many saw this as a major breakthrough for females pursuing and successfully working in the field. Yet, many were yelling fowl over 2011’s Academy snub of Lisa Cholodenko and Debra Granik for best director nominees.
Does this prove sexism runs rampant in Hollywood and among the Academy members, made up of the Hollywood elite, or is it really just a matter of preference or even ratios?
