Will Oscar stiff women, again?
By Mark Olsen, The Envelope
They dont call the statue Oscar for nothing besides the actress categories and best dressed coverage, the Academy Awards have always been dominated by men. One oft-told factoid is that no woman has yet to win the best director trophy, and only three Lina Wertmuller, Jane Campion and Sofia Coppola have even been nominated. Heres a look at some of the female filmmakers whove made an impact in 2007. Some stand a real shot at Oscar glory, a few will earn 2008 Spirit Award attention, and most will be left by the wayside.
