Video: Great Films by Women That Didn’t Get an Oscar Nomination


There’s a lot to like about this year’s Best Picture nominees — a surprise nod for Terrence Malick’s hugely ambitious, quasi-experimental The Tree of Life, some recognition for Woody Allen’s charming Midnight in Paris, and a frontrunner that we actually enjoyed (The Artist). But guess what? As per usual, there were many great movies made by women this year, and none of them are up for Best Picture or Best Director. Noticing the, um, oversight, the fantastic blog Women and Hollywood has created a video compilation of potentially nomination-worthy 2011 films with female directors — we personally co-sign The Future and Meek’s Cutoff, and plan to see many more on the list. Here’s hoping the Academy is watching.
