The nominations for 92nd Academy Awards were unveiled on January 13 leaving the internet users 'angry and disappointed'. The directing nominees included Parasite's Bong Joon-ho to Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's Quentin Tarantino however, netizens were quick to notice that not a single woman director will be competing for an Oscar. Furthermore, only one person of colour has been nominated across all four acting categories.
Netizens were 'disheartened with no improvement' as women were shut out of this year's directing nominations, and one of the Twitter users also posted a GIF saying 'but you left some things'. Majority reactions included disappointment among the internet users for leaving out Little Women director Greta Gerwig. One Twitter user posted high-rated screenshots of films by women directors and said 'it's a shame'.

No women... what a shame. Plenty of deserving women could’ve and should’ve made this list.— Chandler Blum (@CZBlum_) January 13, 2020
It's easy to be discouraged on a day like this, but let's remember to do what we can for female-directed films. Go to the cinema to see them, stream them (legally!), write about them, tell your friends about them. Awards help directors get work, but so does box office. #OscarNoms pic.twitter.com/pJhSy7Bynk— Nicole Ackman (@nicoleackman16) January 13, 2020
