Getting #OscHERs: Listing this year’s Oscar-nominated women

OscHERs

It’s easy to get down on the Oscars for not nominating women in major categories, including Best Director. Way, way, way too easy. Heck, it’s the main reason we started our own version of the Oscars, the Kaels. But at the same time, we also have to celebrate the women the Academy are actually paying attention to, despite their blatantly sexist bent.

That’s why we took the time and effort to put together this list of women nominated for Oscars this year, both in the gendered (i.e. Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress) and non-gendered categories. We hope we can help bring some of these names to your attention, either again or for the first time, and demonstrate that girls can still rule the Oscars from within. We’ll also be keeping track of how many women actually win their categories via our Twitter account (@Cinefilles) and using the hashtag #OscHERs on Sunday.
