While 2019 saw plenty of incredible films spearheaded by women, the awards shows' directing categories do not reflect that.
Women were entirely ignored among the Golden Globes directing nominees this year, and now for the Oscars as well. Worse still, it seems that there is little diversity in any of the top categories, with only one woman of color, Cynthia Erivo, nominated in any of the acting categories. And while Little Women was nominated in a variety of categories, director Greta Gerwig was left out.

Here is all of the nominees, but what's missing is far more glaring than who got a nod.
John Cho and Issa Rae read out the nominees in each of the categories for this year's Academy Awards. When it came time to read out the names in the directing lineup, Rae said poignantly, "Congratulations to these men."
