First Oscar to a woman director

Today,8th March, is the Women Worker Day and… this morning I get up with this piece of new:

Last night, Kathryn Bigelow has made history. She is the first women who wins an Oscar in the category of director. She makes a film called ”The Hurt Locker” (La tierra hostil in Spanish)

Three women were candidates previously to the prize to better direction: Lina Wertmuller by ”Pasqualino: seven beautys” in 1977, Jane Campion by ”the  Piano” in 1993 and Sofia  Coppola by ”Lost in translation” in 2003.
Finally, Kathryn Bigelow has won the Oscar this year.
”The Hurt Locker” won six of nine Oscar which they were candidates and obtaining more protanogism than, the favourite film,  Avatar by James Cameron who only has won three golden statuettes.

      What do you mean by “overcame us”? I guess you want to say that women overcome every obstacle, don’t you? And of course it’s clear that we don’t only clean!! BUt cleaning is something important, necessary to everyday life, that both men and women should be responsible for.

    It was about time that in 82 editions of the oscar´s awards a woman won the prize. I think more women should try to direct films, because they would be as good as the ones that are directed by men.

    Teacher finally I have a username, I will post something soon.

      There are many female filmmakers now, as there are many female writers, artists, etc. They’re just not so well-known and so recognized as their male partners!
      And I’m looking forward to reading one of your posts soon!
