After reading the
story about Rep. Peter King threatening to investigate the White House's
cooperation with Kathryn Bigelow for her upcoming Bin Laden film, I started wondering again about whether or
not women have gained any ground in Hollywood
since Bigelow won her Oscar.
Well, last year was kind
of a wash, Oscar-wise" Lisa Cholodenko ("The Kids Are All Right") and Debra
Granik ("Winter's Bone") got Best Picture and Best Screenwriting nominations
but not Best Director and ended up winning nothing.
