10 Female Directors That Should have been nominated for the 2019 Academy Awards by Casey Kohlberg

While putting together our roundup of amazing, incredible, talented female academy award winners this morning - it was hard not to notice how small the list was. How on point was presenter, Natalie Portman, announcing, “here are the all-male nominees” at the 2018 awards? So as a fun game we played, we imagined that in another world, hopefully some day not too far off, announcing ourselves, “Here are the all female nominees!” 

Take a look a 10 incredibly talented female directors who produced excellent work that was also eligible for the Awards show last night.
