Here We Go Again: #DirectorsSoMale at the Oscars

NEW YORK (AP) — No female directing nominees. Only one acting nominee of color. The 2020 Oscar nominations reflects previous troubling trends of a lack of diversity and inclusion. It was also a difficult day for pop stars: Jennifer Lopez was denied a hoped-for supporting actress nod, and Beyonce wasn’t feeling any love for her “Lion King” song. In the animated feature category, “Frozen 2” was iced out despite the love of little girls everywhere (it got an original song nod.) And Robert De Niro was not feeling the luck of “The Irishman.” He was left out of his movie’s haul.
