Emma Stone didn’t let a few late Oscar parties keep her from missing her LAX flight out of town this morning. She was last year’s Oscar winning Best Actress and created quite a stir when she presented the Best Director award at the Oscars last night. She said “It is the vision of a director that turns a movie into a work of art – these four men and Greta Gerwig created their own masterpieces this year.” It was a subtle but effective reminder of the constant absence of women the category. Men NEED to be reminded of this as often as possible until changes are made. People on Twitter later criticized Emma for being “dismissive” of the male nominees, but haven’t women in Hollywood (and other places) been dismissed for far too long? Nice work, Emma!
