This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced the nominees for the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards. We want to wish a heartfelt congratulations to all the nominees while also acknowledging the missing female filmmakers from the awards nominations.
It’s 2019 and we would be remiss to announce The Golden Globes nomination without first bringing to light some of the prestigious films and tv series made by women.
Our directorial dedication for best film, which should have been nominated goes to:
Alma Harel for her stunning direction of Honey Boy. A true story which gives anyone with a troubled childhood the ability to look forward, and have hope for a better future.
Kasi Lemmons for her direction of Harriet. A true story about Harriet Tubman who is an American hero, the story is a champion of it’s time, and now our time as well. As artists Hollywood strives to tell stories which focus on the human condition, which strive to bring us human connection, through storytelling. These are just two of many women who have made incredible contributions to cinema in 2019. Thank you ladies for your hard work.
Ava DuVernay gave us one of the most emotionally stunning true stories this year with the limited series “When They See Us”, well we see you ladies. We see the hard working women of cinema. These are just a few names. Take a moment to seek out the incredible stories told by women in film this year. We applaud you at Press Pass LA.
We do congratulate the nominees of this years Golden Globes. Its wonderful to see more diversity within the nominees, although we still hope and push for more. As a representation of entertainment media we all deserve to see more people of color and women being nominated and not relegated to the margins.
