Oscar nominees remain predominantly male

Nominations for the 91st Academy Awards were announced early January 22. For the 87th time in Oscar history, no women are nominated for Best Director; only five women have ever been nominated in this category and Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, 2010) is the only winner.

No Best Picture nominees are directed by women this year and no actors nominated for leading roles were in films directed by more.
